    May Dustin’s Soul, through the Mercy of God, Rest in Peace. May the Good Lord grant peace to his family. I was on St. Thomas’s Parish Council with Donna. We built the new church and her husband, contributed his time, and talent to floor the new church. The Knights worked with him removing the empty cartons, scraps, etc., so he and his men could keep a flow going. He did a great job. Now, both he and his son are in Heaven with Jesus. May God Bless you Donna, and hold you in the Palm of His Hand all the days of your life.

      Thank you so much for sharing these memories. I remember them so well. We all worked together getting the new building floored. I was honored to be a part of choosing colors, etc. My family felt privileged to give our time in the finishing of our church building. Dustin definitely grew up in the business and knew it inside and out. He was so talented in his craft and I’m sure all of the Pierce men have been busy working on our Heavenly mansions.
