To Austin's Family, I am moved to write to you again. We are O.U. Football Parents. Our Son is Matt Wilson # 67, a walk on from North Carolina. Austin was a help to Matt and as Matt puts it "AUSTIN WAS ALWAYS a FRIEND TO ME." Matt is crushed with the loss of his Friend and Teammate. He knows the devastation upon a family when a Child and a Brother is gone too soon to Heaven. Matt lost his Brother (our oldest Son out of 3 boys)when Matt was 15 yrs old. C.J. was 21 yrs. Matt knows what it is to lose a Brother and his parents a Son. If We or Matt can be of Comfort to You, Please do not hesitate to contact us. We will be here for you for eternity. As I sit here and read the entries in Austin's Guestbook, I am so moved at the fact that Austin touched so many lives. And I know this is just a small portion of the lives he has touched from the moment he was born to You as your Child and to his Sisters-your Brother. I know our Son, Matt, spoke highly of Austin always, and we felt like we knew Austin through Matt and from watching Austin on the field. I wish that I could turn back the hands of time and bring him back to you. I am devastated for you. I know that Austin is in Heaven with the LORD and our Son , C.J.is there with him. I know they are having the Time of their eternal lives and doing perfect...and I know - HEAVEN IS MUCH RICHER with AUSTIN there but here we are much more poor with him gone from this earth.
We are here for you at anytime. I will attach my email if there is anytime you want to contact us.
May GOD HOLD YOU ALL SO VERY TIGHT IN HIS CARE,
MAY GOD BLESS YOU AS ONLY HE CAN,
( Matt's Mom # 67 Defense-O.U. Football )
