Austin, you were always a good friend to me, even though we weren't extremely close. This past year, 8th grade, has been especially difficult, with you not there. I would like for you to know, we made it! The entire 8th grade made it through and graduated! I will never forget you, Austin, and I'm sure no one in this class who knew you will ever forget you. Thanks to you, Austin, we will be a closer group than we were before. I miss you, and I will carry your memory with me throughout my life.
