We were all devastated to here about Dustin! We have such fond memories of our old roping days which frequently included Dustin. We were so amazed at the talent he possessed at such a young age! He was so special. Our hearts go out for the Rash family and you will all be in our thoughts and prayers. So, so sorry!!

Dustin was such a great roper from a very early age. Such a shock to hear about his passing. Since our rodeo days ended, we lost touch with so many friends we had made over the years. Our hearts ache for Dustin's family as they go through their healing process.

I watched this kid grow into a man. I watched this kid become one of the best talents I have ever seen in the roping pen. I watched this kid struggle with demons. I watched this kid become a great father. And now I’ve watched this kid step into the company of our Holy Father. The roping world has truly lost a talent. Rest In Peace Dustin. Prayers for the entire family forms Alaska

My heart was so heavy when my daughter Nicki Mullis Johnson called to tell me about Dustin. I have prayed and prayed for the entire family and will continue to do so. The Lord above knew Dustin’s heart and had a much greater plan for him than any of us on earth can see. Dustin was an incredible young man, and an even better cowboy. He will be watching over his family.

THOSE WE LOVE MUST SOMEDAY PASS
BEYOND OUR PRESENT SIGHT...
MUST LEAVE US AND THE WORLD WE KNOW
WITHOUT THEIR RADIANT LIGHT.
BUT WE KNOW THAT LIKE A CANDLE,
THEIR LOVELY LIGHT WILL SHINE
TO BRIGHTEN UP ANOTHER PLACE
MORE PERFECT...MORE DIVINE.
AND IN THE REALM OF HEAVEN,
WHERE THEY SHINE SO WARM AND BRIGHT,
OUR LOVED ONES LIVE FOREVERMORE
IN GOD'S ETERNAL LIGHT. ~

To the whole family of Dustin's and his friends, i want to extend my deepest condolences to each of for your tremendous loss.
Today your hearts are heavy with sorrow and grief.
"Memories grow more precious still when loved ones have to part,
and remain blooming in the garden of your heart.
It's hard to forget someone who gave you so much to remember.
May the peace of God flood your hearts to comfort you in times of sadness. Remember the days of laughter and all the happy times.
Lean on the Lord and you will never walk alone. I am so very sorry,Dustin was taken far too soon. But you have a cowboy guardian angel by your side now.
I love you all ~ Bunny
