    One month seems like a lifetime! I miss you!
    Not a second goes by you are not on my mind. How do I live without you?
    I know exactly what you would be doing on these beautiful days.
    I Love you and miss you so very much!
    About to ride! Thinking of you
    So many bikes went by the house today! I wish so much it was you.
    Life is just not life without you. I miss you!
    The days are getting harder and longer without you. Not sure I can do this.
    Oh Dustin. I remember when we met about 14 years ago.
    We were talking about Lil Wayne and we became cool after that
    I enjoyed talking to you after school. You were a cool white guy
    I saw the good in you and wanted you to become something great
    But life doesn't always work out that way. But I enjoyed you nonetheless.
    I hate that we lost touch the first time around. You told me things
    would've been better if we kept in touch after we reunited six years later.
    And then we lost touch again. Years later, I've decided to
    try and reach out to again. No words can describe what I felt.
    I'm sorry that I failed to reach out sooner. You will always be my Paul Wall.
    Sleep tight. Love Diamond.
    you touched so many lives, you made an impact on so many
    just wished you knew how special you really are, not only to your family but your true friends
    I Love you so very much
