Austin was the love of my life for almost 6 years. No matter how hard I tried I could NOT get over that man and he couldn’t get over me lol!! We had just a sweet, goofy, relationship. Even wen we argued we still kissed each other goodnight or goodbye and we would be completely fine In an hour. We have SO many memories together and I’m so happy to be a part of this family. It truly is so loving. Austin lit up the room when he walked in with a smile. Everyone loved austin I’ve never met someone who didn’t. He was always smiling and being goofy with me, with everyone. We made a very good couple because we are both just so loving, caring, giving, and goofy. We always put everyone else before ourselves. He’s my sweet baby boy and always will be❤️ I love you and miss you so much Austin Monday - Your “Wife”🥰

I remember going to school with Austin and he was the sweetest kid that you would ever meet even though we didn’t talk much when were in school but you always came to school with a positive outlook and had a big smile on your face..

I had the privilege of meeting Austin when he joined my boys and rode the bus to the Reckless Youth Group crew once a week. We had a lot of fun on those bus rides, and I hope all the kids whom got to go to Reckless have lasting memories of their time together and Gods love for them. Austin was fun, silly, ornery and very sweet! I also could tell how much he loved his family when he had his sister join our crew, and the way he would talk about his siblings. I was blessed to know them. His smile lit up the room (or bus) even when it was cause I had to yell at him to sit down! (: I am so sorry for the family and friends who will always miss him. Praying and thinking of you all.

I remember Austin fondly. I saw many times him interacting with his little sister, and he was so caring and gentle. I thought, "How blessed Josie is to have such a brother like that"
My heart to y'all.
May God comfort your hearts.

I remember Austin from a church camp all the way back when I myself was in 4th grade(now a freshman in college). He was such a kind person and my friend and I had never forgotten him since that day. We would always bring him up randomly at times because the memories of that camp was so beautiful. When I met him, he was such a sweet and handsome soul, I can’t imagine the man he turned out to be after all these years. I am so sorry for the family and I am sending you my deepest condolences! Praying for you all at this time. May he Rest In Peace🤍
