Austin – A Memorial

AustinFrom Robert, Austin’s Father:

Austin was born on January 23rd 2008.  He was diagnosed with brain cancer in November of 2009.  He earned his angel wings on December 5th, 2014, forever 6 years old.  He loved to laugh.  He always had a smile on his face, regardless of the circumstances he was in.  He was the strongest person I knew.  He taught me so much about perseverance and the human spirit.  We love him and miss him so much.


  1. Robert,
    What a beautiful child! Thank you for sharing Austin’s picture and story with us. I have a son named Austin also and know that most of them are full of mischief ! My son is pictured here also. His names is Brandon (BJ). I will be thinking of you and your broken heart. I will be praying for you as December approaches. May God bless you and keep you in his care.

  2. Robert, I am so very sorry for the loss of such a precious little boy. I have no words to comfort you as we all know there are no words to describe the enormity of such a loss. Austin looks like he’s is quite a character with that beautiful red hair! I pray you feel his presence with you every day as I strongly believe our children never leave us and he is there to guide you through your grief journey. Know that you are not alone and I pray for peace and strength for you and your family.
