Me and Austin have been close since the beginning of 7th grade. I have never ever met a person so kind, caring, funny, sweet, and so respectful as Austin. He was always there for me. Never once was I alone, because I always had Austin. I remember ever single memory with Austin so clearly. One time, we were at Ponderosa and my puppy was eating bark i had in my hand, he kept grabbing my hand and pulling it away because he didn't want the puppy hurt. I remember that same day he hugged me before he left and he had a jacket with tons and tons of bottons and zippers on it. So i unzipped one zipper and unbuttoned a button, he wore it to school like that for weeks. It made me happy. Austin in general made me happy. I'm so sorry for your loss. I truly am heart broken.
