To the Austin family and all who loved this bright beautiful spirit, I know as I look into the heavens I will see the the biggest brightest star shining down on me, and I will know that bright warmth of love as I have always known it to be, I will smile and relish in her love for me and smile knowing that she is there with two of my other sisters for ever watching over me and my family. I pray you will have peace to know this is not the end but a beautiful new beginning.
