Austin was a once in a lifetime friend. When I was an easy target to pick-on in elementary, he instead showed me kindness that I'll never be able to thank him enough for. His silliness, acceptance, and unconditional love were a becon of hope for me through my otherwise lonely school experience. I will forever remember your laugh and our crazy intense games of tag at school. You will forever be a part of me. Thank you for being my friend, I'll catch ya on the otherside.
