Never in a million years would I have thought I'd get this news. I remember you were kinda quiet in school, but I found that you were a forreal clown when you would come to Stanford Heath or we would slide to Peter Park... And it never failed, every chance you got to say, "Tameka, there go Perry" and start cracking up, you did... LOL Damn dawg. Damn.
To the family:
May God keep you, guide you, and comfort you through the pain of your loss. I also pray that my friend's murder is resolved and you get the justice deserved.

Dustin you will be missed. We were next door neighbors in Tucker when you, your dad, and brother moved to Tucker. You and Damon always looked out for me. We all went to school together and grew up in the Tucker neighborhood together. I pray comfort for your family during this time and after.
