From as far as I can remember, Dusty has always been in the picture. It's always been Doodle (Krysta) and Dusty. I never saw them far from each other, and my memories of them together are some of my happiest. They showed me what love really is all the time, and I'll continue to remember that always. I can't say it enough, Dusty was just an amazing person with a great personality. He was definitely stubborn, but he was also brave, kind, smart, goofy, funny, energetic, hardworking, determined, and so much more. He was probably the strongest person I know, even when it was extremely hard, he never stopped fighting. He was also very loving, and he loved his friends and family with all of his heart. If you had his back, he had yours. If he said he was going to do something, he did it. He was always there for me, making me feel better when I was sad or stressed, always making me laugh with his jokes. Dusty loved seeing us and spending time with us. He loved talking about his kids, and would always show us pictures of his granddaughters. He made Krysta a lunch every morning. He loved her more than anything and always told us she was the "love of his life" and I truly believe that.
Dusty, I thank god everyday that you were in my life. I cherished every moment I spent with you, and I will continue to cherish every memory we've made together. You've made such an impact on my life and made it so much better, and I will never forget everything you've done for me. I miss you so much, and I wish we had more time, but I know the time I had with you was enough for me to know that you loved me and for me to show that I love you. I am so proud to call you my uncle, and to be your niece. You loved abundantly and had a heart of gold, and I want to be like that too. You mean so much to me and I will never forget you. I know heaven will welcome you with open arms, so go join the angels and take care of everyone up there for me. I love you so much, more than anything and everything.

I'm sitting here staring at this box that's provided for memories and condolences but when I think of Dusty it just doesn't seem like a big enough space. Dusty had a larger than life personality and he always made me laugh. When I would be at the house with Tedra and the family I always thought "what crazy off the wall will he say this time to get a laugh?". It was always a surprise and sometimes it would be the only thing that would distract me if I had something heavy on my mind. I'll miss that. Dusty, you were a nutball but you were loved and that will never change. Rest well.

Uncle Dusty,
One of my favorite memories of you is when the family went to a Courtland High School Football Game. It was Courtland Cougars vs. King George Foxes and it was fun. You, Me , Doodle, Kyla, Alexa and Weasel all ate Skittles. It was bad for the Cougars because they lost at their Homecoming game but you were to busy watching the Washington Nats Playoff Game to notice. (haha)
We took a group picture with the Cougar Mascot, we had a good time. You and Doodle gave us a gigantic bag of candy.
It was a good game and memory and I'm pretty sure you and Doodle had fun too.
I can't accept that you're gone. It will be lonely at Yaya's house because it will only be Doodle and Uncle Michael. It wont feel right without you because you let me eat anything I wanted and we used to watch Movies together, now I will be watching Movies all by myself. You will be in my thoughts forever I will never forget you Uncle Dusty Dawg.
Now y'all know that I loved and will love Dusty for the rest of my life. Me and Dusty were best friends even though we were family..

Uncle Dusty,
I miss you so much, yet it doesn't feel like you're gone. My world stopped and it feels like everyone else's should too but I still have to continue on with my life. I just wish I didn't have to continue it without you.
I want to be strong because you were the strongest person I've ever met. You were an amazing person and one of the most important people in my life. You accepted me and Kyla into your heart even though we aren't blood and I thank you for that. You have made an impact on my life that no one else can and you have changed me for the better. People come and go from our lives but it's what they leave behind in our hearts and our memories that mean the most.
I can't promise that I can help her but I promise that I will try to look after Aunt Krysta the best I can. I wish we had more time together but I'm glad that I had the time I did to show you my love.
I never want to forget the sound of your voice, your laugh, the way it felt to hug you. I will forever miss your smile and your texts every morning that made my days. Our last day together was Valentines Day and I'm so glad that I got to spend a good day with you. My last words to you were "I love you" and I wouldn't have it any other way.
The heavens will have never shined brighter than the day you left this earth and joined the angels. Take care of my Yaya for me. Although a beautiful person was taken from this world, this isn't a goodbye. It is only a new chapter in your story. I will forever hold you in my memory until we meet again. I love you forever and always Dusty Dawg.
