Not sure what to say?


With deepest sympathy,

Dr. Austin was a great family friend and doctor while growing up in Newton MS. I was fortunate to visit with him several years ago in Florence, and enjoyed catching up on past times. My sympathy to Ann in the loss of a great Dad.

What a wonderful man he was. I've never met a more caring soul. Always enjoyed his stories of days gone by. Rest in Peace, Doc.

What a wonderful Father you've had for all of your life. Dr. Austin had a great big heart and showed his love. I loved working with him for many years and one thing was always clear he loved you very much.
RIP my old friend

Sorrow is for those who remain here and miss our loved one. Joy and celebration are for those who have left behind illness, pain and suffering and are resting in the arms of Christ. Take comfort in knowing your dad is in a much better place.
Georgann and Mariann Flynn

Ann, as you know I was a great believer in your father as a Dr and also as my friend's father. Remember our senior trip to FL.You had great parents and your Dad will really be missed. Love you from all your friends in Newton.

I did not know your father well, but I looked forward to seeing him each Sunday across the aisle from my husband and I. He wore the most interesting ties and I would always speak to him and comment on his tie. There will be a void when I look across the aisle and he is not there. So sorry for the loss of your father. Wish I had known him better.

Ann, We were blessed to grow up in a small town with where the "greatest" generation guided our steps. Your Dad was always quick with his smile and warm words.
He was much more than a Dr, he was our friend and confidant (yes, we did have a few secrets on occasion!) We will miss him, but he will live on in our memories.
You are in our thoughts and prayers,
Love you,

Sending hugs and prayers your way, Ann. Your father was absolutely one of the sweetest, kind-spirited and joyful gentlemen that I have ever encountered. He was truly delightful. Let Heaven rejoice in his presence!
