I was so sorry to read about the sudden loss of Austin and I wanted to send my warmest condolences to the family. To lose someone so loved, a part of your life, can sometimes overwhelm but the God of all comfort tells us at 2 Kings 20:5 he feels our pain. At we can read John 5:28, 29 that you will have him in your life once again. May all the memories you have give you calm and peace to help you through until God’s promises come true. Again so very sorry for your heartache.🌻
