Austin, you were one of the smartest, purest people I've ever known. In Science Olympiad, we all looked to you for judgment calls and advice. You were the heart--the rock--of our team, and it was such a blessing to have known you. Losing you is so unfair to our world, because you are one of a kind. I know that if you had more time here, you could have changed the world so much more than you already did.
I also still remember in middle school when you guys won Science Bowl Nationals and you were shorter than your trophy. We'll miss you, Austin.
