Austin was just 18 years old when he accidentally shot and killed himself while under the influence of a mind-altering drug. His death has turned our lives upside down. We have never known such grief. It is almost unbearable at times. The manner of his death is in NO way a reflection of who Austin was. He was the most caring, giving, loving son, nephew, grandson and friend. He was always there with a smile and a hug. Always there to lend a hand or make goofy faces to cheer someone up.
