    My heartbreaks for bev, katie and Jim as well as the other family members. I’ve know bev since she was young and she was a loving devoted mom to her kids. Austin was a good young man whom I knew through his going to the school where I worked. Austin was very loved by his parents, family, cousins, friends etc. Austin’s death will leave a deep void in this families lives. Prayers for all of you. Ms lee
