I did not know Austin very well, but I worked with him for a few months back in 2004. And from the time I first met him I knew he was going to do big things with his life. I just wish I could have known him better! Austin, you will be greatly missed and you are a true hero!
To Austin's family:
My thoughts and prayers go out to you in this hard time in your lives and I know exactly how it feels to lose a loved one because I lost a step-brother, Chris Johnson, back in October 2005. God bless all of you!
