Dustin was a vibrant and vital part of my early and young adulthood. He got me through many rough times, and I will always love him and his family whom I consider my family. Sending love and prayers to his wife, children, and especially Rhonda. Love you all!

Our hearts go out to all of you who loved Dustin. What a heart-breaking experience it must be to lose a child.
Dustin called me 'uncle Johnnie' even though I was actually his second cousin.
One of my fondest memories of Dustin was when he was a small child. Our family would often visit with my mother and dad. His step-grandfather, Gerald, owned a motorcycle that Dustin loved to taken for rides on. He would beg Gerald to take him for a ride and Gerald would always ask him, "Do you have any gas money?" It always drew a laugh from all of us. Of course Gerald would take him for a ride and Dustin would have a huge grin on his face while he hung on to Gerald on the back of the bike.
Jo Ann and I had a visit from Dustin and his family a couple of years ago. We were pleased to see he was doing so well in his life. He will be missed.

My prayers are with your family right now because I know what a difficult time it is.
Dustin called me “sissy” because Tara did and I loved that so very much. I will treasure messages from him. I honestly have no words that will adequately express what my heart is feeling right now. Just know that Dustin will forever hold a special place in the heart of the Tyndall family.
Love and prayers,

Rhonda, my heart ❤️ breaks for you!! How does a mother lose not one, but two (all) of her children! Also, your parents and brother! I know you feel “why me”!! I can’t tell you I know how you feel because I’ve never lost a child, but I do know Jesus and his angels are with you! You are such a good person and you will make it through all this!! I love you dearly. Love, Wanda. 🙏🙏❤️❤️.
