I never knew Austin but his brother is our neighbor in Kellerton just two houses down. Brothers are such friends that I feel for Judd on the loss of his bro. May the good Lord wrap his arms around this f amily and help them find acceptance and peace that AUstin is in the right place.

My thoughts have been with you all. I was so troubled to hear such sad news. My hope is that as days pass you will find peace and your memories of Austin will bring you joy. I will always remember him with a childlike grin and a sideways look. He will be missed.
