Our hearts are broken. Austin was one of those kids you knew from the beginning was going to do great things with his life. We remember seeing his 3rd grade spelling sheet on your fridge and noting that, while other kids were mastering things like “house and mouse,” “angel vs. angle,” etc., he required “bioluminescence.” Clearly, not your run-of-the-mill 3rd grader! We remember the kids trick-or-treating together in the great costumes you came up with, and he was unfailingly polite to all the “treaters.” He delighted in learning and, as everyone has noted, never rested until he had more knowledge under his belt for the day. We, too, feel his loss, not only for his friends and family, who will be forever heartbroken, but for the world, which will not have the benefit of his intellect and passion. May your memories of him be of a blessing and comfort in the time to come.
