Dusty I don't know what to say. I will never have any other nephews and even if I had, I couldnít have been prouder of anyone, than I was with you and Bryan. I remember the Peewee basket ball games, the soccer practices and games. Yea even when you two spray painted your house, the baby setter ether fell asleep or you two  drove her off (canít remember which). I can still see Bryan in Tariís living room some years back and after a nice conversation when I was leaving he said ďit is really good to see you Uncle DavidĒ. Let me tell you that it brought a tear to my eyes then, as it does now. I know what it is to lose a brother and I think about him almost daily. Just as Iím sure that you think about Bryan. Please know that it does get better, and somehow we become stronger. I wish you and your family the best and I pray the whole family can begin to heal.
Uncle David

Bryan, you were a great and friendly guy to all whom you met. I still remember your great skateboarding style and the days at Jamaica Jims. I was shocked to hear of your sudden passing but hope that your spirit and energy pass into the next plane and are drifting somewhere up high in the Rockies in a secret snowboarding spot.

Brian always seemed to be in a good mood and he had one of those smiles that was very sincere and even if you were in a bad mood, being around Brian would make you feel better. One of those dudes you're always happy to see, and he's always happy to see you. Even though I know he's gone I still keep thinking I see him and it makes my heart drop to know I'll never see him again. I'll miss you and Denver will miss you homey. I love ya.

Bryan, You were and always will be one of my best friends. We never had a falling out(no matter how stubborn I can be!). I could count on you like a brother. You made me laugh more than anyone else. You were a wonderful father. A few weeks ago, when I asked about Autumn, you pulled out her picture and the smile I saw is with me today. You will never be replaced in my heart. You were one of the only ones who "got" me. Thank You for the memories! :)--Lala

Everytime I had a big show, or something that was important to me, I could always count on Bryan to make it important to him as well. We hung out a lot, and laughed a lot. Through Bryan, I met a lot of his friends, and in return they became my friends. My life is forever enriched.

Bryan, I will always love you. A piece of my heart will belong to you forever. This July 4th would have been 10 years. Your tragic death has affected so many lives, however it is your life and the tremendous affect that you have had on others that I want to remember. I will do this by keeping in touch with your family and especially Autumn. She is a very special person who is kind-hearted and outgoing and just like you, is able to bring people together and bring out the best in a person. Bryan, thank you for everything you saw in me throughout the years, my life will never be the same without you. Much love forever, Michelle.

The laughing Lusk. Up for anything, anytime, anywhere. I'll miss the Broncos games and the early mornings in Breck. I'll keep eating the Saltine sandwiches at mountaintop, but I'll NEVER be able to eat chili on Tiger road without laughing out loud. I miss you, Bryan. I miss every minute of it.

Bryan, after all the times we talked about Autumn and Halie meeting I am sad that this tragedy is what finally put them in the same room. I am deeply sorry for the loss everyone has had to endure. You were a caring friend and I will miss you. Love you!
   AJ Boehm (Littleton, CO)

Bryan was my best friend. I am truly lost without him. I will never again find a friend that offered the friendship that Bryan reciprocated unconditionally. He was caring, giving, gentle, compassionate, I could go on and on about how great a person he was, but everyone who knew him, knew this, even those who knew him only as an acquaintance. I will live the rest of my life not understanding why he is not here in person to share my wedding and college graduation, Autumnís first boyfriend and kiss, and her high school graduation and all the many more joys and sorrows that life brings to us. I love Bryan with all my heart and to his family I offer only my deepest sympathies and prayers. I love all of you and want you to know that Bryan will walk with us through life watching over us as our guardian angel.

Bry - I will forever treasure all the wonderful memories we shared. Flying off into thigh high bumps at Vail, your mayo fingers after night riding the pass, and especially your kind and gentle smile. You taught me how to laugh at myself and not take life so seriously. You were a dedicated father, reliable friend, and a caring soul. You have touched so many lives here and I hope to meet again someday. ONE LOVE

Bryan, You were a great friend and always had good news for me. Thank you for your support in my time of need. I will miss you very much. Now you have the peace that I knew you needed so desperately. I love you. I know you will always be with all of us!

I will cheerish all the good & bad times I shared with Bryan. From the moment I met Bryan I new he had changed my life & now that he has left it too will never be the same! I will forever miss & love him!

Brian would always come greet me with a big smile and a hug that was almost to much to endure. To see all the people that had come to pay there respects, I realized that Brian had hugged many, many people in his life with the same power and love. We are all going to miss his smiling face and warm friendship. You always said you loved me Brian, Well I love you too man. And I'm gonna miss you.

Words cannot express how much i appreciated Brain. He was awsome, funny, loving, and every time we parted, he'd give me a hug, an expression not practiced enough anymore. He never had expectations for people, he loved his friends no matter their flaws. To his parents, i want to say thank you for allowing me to stay at the hospital with you, it was an expeierence i will never forget and i would have never forgave myself if i hadnt gone. Brian, we all love and appreciate you more than you'll ever know. Thanks for being a part of my life.

My deepest sympathies to Autum and the entire Lusk Family. You can rest assured that he loved you all dearly and was also loved dearly. Thank you for such a wonderful service and giving us a special friend. Although he left us before what we all might have thought was his time, we must look at how this has brought us together and changed our lives, both goood and bad. Thank you always and I sincerely hope we all carry on the legacy of love, warmth, acceptance and laughter Bryan had brought to us. Best wishes and take care.
