I never met you, but I hear wonderful things all day every day about you from your friends and family, Mrs. Austin. And from what I've met of your family and friends - I like to think that you did good with them. That you raised a strong, loving, and supportive family with great morals and the kindest hearts I've seen in a long time. I'm lucky enough to work with one of your daughters, who is as strong as you were. And is an incredible person through and through. Though I never knew you, my heart breaks for those who mourn you and I am grateful you brought such wonderful people into this world to carry on your legacy, and I say this knowing that you will be missed every single moment of every single day. But rest well knowing that you did better than good in all aspects of your life and no person is more deserving of the peace, love, and rest that you are enjoying now in the arms of your loved ones gone before you. And I will continue to be there for Lynne and her friends and family as much as I can through this. Rest easy.

I will miss our frendship sooo much. I remember us laughing so hard you would grab your tummy and scream at me to stop. We would shop and then go to the VI for lunch and talk about our husbands ( in a good way - of course. ) So many emotions are mixed up in my heart right now. I love you, but I know you had to go. Go in peace my beautiful friend. Say hi to Jules for us.
