This Sunday, friends and family will say goodbye to the Bend man who was swept out to sea when the tsunami hit the west coast. "It's hard because there's no closure; cause we may never find him." Close friend Blasie Butcher says despite extensive searches they haven't found Dustin Weber's body. Dustin Weber, 25, was taking pictures of the big waves south of Crescent City when a huge wave caught him off guard. Weber had just moved there from Bend a few weeks prior to the tsunami. Butcher says after some tough times during his earlier years; he went to his grandmother's home overlooking the ocean and mouth of the Klamath River, ready to start fresh: “He was on top of the world. This was his way to get things figured out, and get some time to himself and he was very ecstatic about his new home and getting a pad where it was a fixer upper home and he was happy." The service is open to the public and is at Trinity Lutheran Church in Bend at 2 o'clock Sunday.
