My dearest best friend and brother.... my heart aches so badly. You were always our shinning hope always finding laughter in the darkest of moments, helping us to laugh when we thought we didn't have a reason to. When we lost Stacey, you gave me encouraging words of wisdom and now you're gone and I can't find that peace of hearing your words... My heart goes out to your family and loved ones. No words of comfort could ever express what I know you meant to everyone and will never ease the pain of losing you.... I love you brother, rest easy..... until Valhalla :-(

Dusty, I watched you grow up from far away .I watched how your older Brother Seth looked up to you with admiration and respect even though you were the youngest..I witnessed how your Grandfather and Dad were so proud of you. I witnessed how you strived to be an awesome father who loved his boys so completely.
Dusty, you have left this world at such and young age. I wish you had known that there were a lot of people around you who loved and cared about you. You're going to be missed so much. Our family prays for the well being, peace for your Mom, brother, children and the rest of your family and friends. I know that you are at peace and you were met by those who have passed on before with loving arms.

Dusty it’s been many years since we have seen each other in person but growing up your where my best friend we where know as Dennis the mennis and Margret. You where my first little red head boyfriend with freckles and I was the blonde girl with big glasses and freckles always bossing you around. We had so much fun back then. The day you moved away we where both devastated and I remember we both wrote letters for a few years until we grew older and went our separate ways. I never forgot about you tho you where always in my heart. When we got back in contact it’s like the Dennis and Margret never left it was instant contact again. What happened friend? What made you hurt so much you couldn’t reach out to anyone? Not even Margret? A piece of me is broken now this Margret is going to miss her Dennis for the rest of her life. I am sorry I wasn’t there for you or talked to you more friend. I love you Dusty and know you have peace now. I miss you and wish I could have hugged you and said goodbye! Until then fly with the eagles and be at peace.
