    Austin you came into my niece’s life a year and a half ago. I have never seen her so happy in my life since she met you. I thank you for that and for being with her through this past years difficult time for her. To me you were family. I am so honored to have had the chance to meet you and consider you part of the family. We will miss you and don’t worry we will take care of Kaysi for you. She loved you so much and this is going to be so hard for her saying goodbye to you. It is hard for her whole family. We will miss you Austin fly high and watch over all of us from above.

    Austin and I work the same shift at ica. My heart breaks for his family and close friends. He always had a smile on his face and said yes ma’am and no ma’am to me. You don’t see that much anymore. I will truly miss him. You all are in my prayers.

    Charles Rhea and family, I am so very sorry to hear about Austin. I taught him at the community college a couple years ago, and he always came to class with a smile and a kind word. He was a great student, and I was honored to see him several times attend the first responder Sundays at New Hope Church in his role as a firefighter. May God bless you and Austin’s family and friends in your grief and loss.

    I will always remember Austin and his fellow classmates for reminding me to turn off the turn signal when I drove them to SVCC. He was a great person and hardworking young man who used too cut the grass at my place and my dad’s place. To his family and close friends you have my condolences, but no words can ever make up for losing a child. As long as his name is spoken, and people remember and talk about their time together with Austin he will never be forgotten. May his memory be a blessing

    To the Hancock Family,
    I am deeply sorry for your loss. I grew up with Austin all through K-12 and we even ended up at college together. I will never forget how Austin brightened up my days when he always went out of his way to say hello as we passed in the halls at Longwood. Austin was such a sweet soul and always had a positive attitude and a very kind heart. Rest In Peace Austin!
