    I miss you brother. I wish you knew how much you meant to me. I’m lost as these tears roll down my eyes. We were together almost every day. I don’t even know what to do without you. I love you. You were my best friend. The brother I always had because you were always there. Thank you. I love you bro! I’m going to miss you….til we meet again.

  28. Kyle Nicholson says:

    Austin was an amazing man. Words don’t do justice to how much I’ll miss him and all the great things about him. I will be praying often through this time for His family and friends. The darkness of this time will not overshadow the light and potential that I always saw in Him. Austin had the energy that could fill a room and had a giant heart for people. I personally witnessed Him receive The Lord as his savior so that gives me peace today. God is faithful even though our heart and flesh may fail. I’ll always love you brother. You taught me so many things and you forever changed my life. Thank you. Fly High brother, can’t wait to see you again

  29. Dylan Graff says:

    Rip brother we go all the way back to pre-K. It’s hard to believe your gone man it really is . Seems like yesterday we were working at ups together. I love you brother and will surely miss you. RIP too a real one.

  30. Nick Hoffner and Family says:

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family. I had the opportunity to spend time with Austin at UPS, and had him sent to help me on route. He was a hard worker and a good person at his core. I was impressed by the young man you raised, and am glad I had the opportunity to spend time with and get to know him. Be proud of him and I hope you all take solace in the fact that he is no longer suffering, and that he is in very capable hands. If there is anything you all need, please let me know.
