    Dear Kathy and Jeff,
    We have never met nor did I have the pleasure of meeting Austin in person but I do know a little about him thanks to Robin and Bill. And, while we will never know why his time with us was so short, I know that he was loved by many and especially by you who lovingly cared for him throughout his short life. Somewhere, his spirit is soaring and he is laughing and bringing joy to many.

    Every day you are in my thoughts and prayers. I know that Austin has been, in many ways, the center of your family. You all put so much love and energy into making his world wonderful for him.
