    My sincere condolences to the family and friends, so sorry for your loss. Please find comfort in knowing that Jehovah God will soon resurrect our dear loved ones (John 5:28-29). Oh how we long for that time when pain, suffering and death will be no more, these former things will have passed away (Revelation 21:3-5).

    I am so sorry for your familys loss. I knew Dustin and will miss his freestyle rapping, his intelligent conversation, and so much more. My son, Thomas, also liked Dustin and was very upset when i told him. I have a few photos of Dustin i will always keep hung on the wall along with a picture he colored me for my birthday one year. I will miss my friend. He is always going to hold a place in many hearts. Again, im truly sorry for your loss.
