I had the pleasure of meeting Austin through my daughter, Aenea. It has always felt like I knew him better than I did because Aenea always talked about him with great enthusiasm and joy ever since they met during their first year at the U of C. We did go out to dinner and enjoyed a wonderful meal of very interesting northern Thai food (unlike anything I have eaten) and shared some concerts. The wordplay was non-stop and I left feeling that I had met a long-lost family member. I wish that I was not remembering Austin and I know that Gregg, Laurie, Aidain and all of his friends and family must share that wish. My thoughts are with you at a very difficult time.
