"Dusty,
as the years pass and everyone around me grows up, I can't help but feel that something is missing. I watch people we knew graduate, get jobs. move into their first homes with someone they love and get engaged. Although I too have made steps towards growing up, starting a career and living on my own, something always doesn't feel quite right. I think of how different things would be if you were still here and it tears me apart. We always talked about what life would be like when we got older and getting older without you has been tough. The life I had once planned with you is so different from the life I have now and I am constantly thinking about you. Your presence is so deeply missed, you would have grown up to be so many amazing things and it saddens me that you're not here to experience all these big moments. I will never understand why you were taken from us so soon. I will always miss you, you took a part of me with you that can simply not be replaced. I hope you're smiling up in heaven and I thank you for always looking over me.
Love always, Sami XO"

"It's been while since I've written to you, but not a day goes by where you aren't in my thoughts. Summertime is always bittersweet for me - I get to reminisce on the incredible countless days we got to spend together enjoying freedom from school! I also, however, deal with the heartbreak of your passing. I've been stressed out and down the last few weeks, however last night, it sounded like I heard your voice from my night-side picture of you and it said "Mikey." It's a realization from you that I shouldn't let certain events get me down. The path will eventually pave itself.

I know you are with me to guide me down that path - Corona's in hand.

Miss you so much."

"Dustin,
Grandmothers hold their grandchildrens hands for a while but holds their hearts forever. As you now take you Nona's hand may your love surround her."

"Last night we had a lovely Christmas dinner and celebration with our little family. It was great food and good company as we are very close knit. For your family Dustin it was not a cozy Christmas. Not only were they without you but your Grandma is sick and their focus was on her also. But as we spent time reflecting..... your zest for life and embracing every moment should teach us all something important. I heard many people discussing different family dynamics because some families do not talk to each other. Because not everyone was welcome in the homes of family members. Why have people lost sight of acceptance and tolerance and being pleasant and civil for one day or one Christmas dinner.  There so much more than what a perfect Christmas is. It doesn't matter if we are all together at the same time or if the dinner is all ready on time and perfectly cooked. What really matters is time together. And Dustin I want to thank you for for helping us remember.
"Yesterday is history... tomorrow is a mystery....Today is a GIFT which is why they call it the present. And the gift of today should be treasured and never taken for granted.  Dustin you touched so many peoples lives with your love and ability to embrace life and the people around you.  We will never know all  those people personally but what you have taught so many of us is the greatest gift of all ....Love
So on this Christmas day may you be surrounded by the warm love of angels everywhere."

"Our Fourth Christmas without you , our hearts still ache and the tears still flow ... if only we could have a minute to hug you,  to hear your crazy laugh one more time, We will never stop Missing you

"Dusty,
I will never forget our last goodbye.... How you hugged me once & then came back and hugged me again. That memory will always be so special to me. When I gave you the peace sign as you drove away I never realized how meaningful that would be. I try to find joy in everyday things & the good in everyone I meet because I know you would have.....miss you forever!
Auntie Gayle"

"Good byes hurt the most when the story is not finished. When you all  lost Dustin you did not just lose him at the stage he was at when he passed but every stage you will all miss without him in your lives.
but......

"An angel came from heaven
to witness Dustin's birth
As he grew into a man she said
"He's much to good for earth"

May you try to find peace knowing that someone who makes such an impact on so many people here on earth is continuing making that same impact on his new journey someplace else.

With loving thoughts,
Janice, Melissa and Spencer"

"Happy Birthday Dusty. Looking back I came to realize that you were always living life to the fullest in every single aspect. Always positive, always made time for your friends and family, and always giving it everything you had whether it was with your jobs, with school, at the gym, the list goes on.. Ever since you left I've been pushing myself to take advantage of the time I have here and to chase after my dreams. I know that's what you would be doing.
There are times when I want to give up and then I hear your voice saying "Dayton ya big pussy" lol (I used to hate when you would call me that but now I literally laugh out loud every time it comes to mind and wish I could hear it again.)
Its a weird feeling to be growing up without you. I know you are watching over all of us and are with us for the special moments in our journey. I can't wait till we can celebrate one of our birthday's together when we meet again. Have a goodnight my friend, I hope you don't try to drink 22 beers.

Dayton"

"I worked at Earls Westhills for four years and this was all the way back in the summer of grade 10 when I was just a bus boy. Dustin was working at Sports Mart in Westhills after having just graduated high school if I'm not mistaken. I always went to that store for the sole reason that there was always this super cool guy that worked there that I always waned to talk to.

I had been picking up my basketball/volleyball gear from there for quite some time before that and always had the chance to speak with him. As time passed with my visits there we would always chat and he would always give me a discount. I could brag to my friends that I had this awesome connection at this store where I picked up all my gear, and that the guy working there was this legend from Central.

He told me all about his high school experiences and how it was such an amazing time to meet new people and have experiences we would remember for the rest of our lives. He always encouraged me to make sure to get involved and to leave high school knowing I didn't leave anything out on table.

We had lots of mutual friends seeing as many people from Bishop Pinkham Junior High fed into Central, and I was pretty good friends with the grade 9's at Pinkham when I was in grade 7. I'm pretty sure he even invited me to a couple parties but I was grounded at the time for being a goofball with my friends.

My brothers birthday was in mid-August and I always wanted an excuse to get out of the house, so my last visit with him was pretty cool. I went in and they had a clearance on these simple, different coloured hoodies, so I picked up three of them, one yellow, one light blue and one red. He said he had a few of them too and recommended I pick them up.

I gave my little brother those hoodies and no word of a lie he loved them so much he wore them until holes appeared eventually.

Like I said, I never knew Dustin as well as I had wished to, but I do know I have thought about him just about every day since the tragedy. He didn't need to be my best friend for me to have been so touched by his words of advice and I live every single day like that 16 year old kid I was, with the gracious and appreciative mindset of how lucky we are to be on this earth. How precious life is.

I learned so much from your son that I could spend hours trying to explain, but he really will always be a part of my life and I will always take him wherever in the world I go. I will tell my kids about him and teach them the importance of appreciating every day on this wonderful earth we live in, and I know I'm one of thousands that Dustin has had that affect on.

Thank you for letting me share that with you,

I'd love to keep in touch.

Sincerely,

Samuel Dundas"

"Dustin,
This is always the toughest time of the year and as the days get closer to 4 years without you and to what would have been you're 22nd birthday, my heart seems to feel a little heavier. You were such a wonderful addition to my life and without you, life has a little less sparkle. I often find myself thinking of you throughout the day and I am reminded of just how precious life is everytime I feel your absence... Something I wish I had known while you were still here. For the past nearly four years you have been in all of my prayers, 11:11 wishes and any other way that I can attempt to ensure that you are happy and safe. I will never be able to fill the piece of my heart that you had when you left and I will forever continue to look for the little moments that remind me of you. 'You are so wonderful to think of, but so hard to be without.'
Until we meet again; all my love,
Your Sammiebear <3 xo"
