A Tribute To A Very Dear Friend
How sad it was to hear of the passing of fellow writer and dear friend Dusty Tibbs.
Dusty lived in Arizona on his secluded ranch with his Rottweilers and horses.
There have been many tributes to him already and many more to follow I am sure.
We kept in touch through our writing and emails;one day he sent me a lengthy email covering his younger years and some very special moments of how he had cared for others.
I realised through these just what a wonderfully kind hearted man he really was.Dusty had a big heart and a kind character.I refer to my friend as a character because this is just what he was.Larger than life ; unique hardworking with goodness ,love and sincerity flowing through him.
His own little corner of his world he loved and through his many stories of his every day life that we all came to love him.
