No greater love than to sacrifice your own life for another. He was a true angel for Logan. Your son will be forever etched in my memory. He will not be forgotten. May you take comfort in knowing that he was greeted in heaven for a job well done. Praying for comfort to ease the pain of loss.

Austin was a great friend and an amazing person.I met him in seventh grade at KMS, we had the same homeroom. He was so sweet and funny. I'm going to miss his smile and his laughter. He will never be forgotten and will always be in my heart. I am truly sorry for your loss.
