Our family experienced a terrible tragedy yesterday.
Dimples was born in October 2001 in Addis Ababa, Ethiopia. She became a part of our family eight years ago and it was our great joy and honor to love and care for her.
Yesterday morning, Russ and Lisa were driving Dimples to Montana for a holiday visit with friends when they were involved in an automobile accident. Dimples passed away instantly in the collision.
Our hearts are heavy as we grieve the loss of our sweet girl. We loved her deeply and are heartbroken by this tragedy. We thank God that she did not suffer, and that she is now completely healed and at peace in the arms of Jesus.
Lisa is in the hospital with fractures and temporary nerve damage, but we expect her to be discharged in the next couple of days. Russ is unharmed. All the Qualls children are together, waiting for Russ and Lisa to return home.
Instead of emailing Lisa or sending personal messages on social media, please send condolences and prayers to [email protected].
