I love you so much Austin! Things have been so hard without you here, but know we are all trying our best. I donâ€™t know what to say I guess, I just want everyone to know about you. To know how brave and strong you were. Like how you took care of your own, respected women and demanded others around you did the same. Or else. I want everyone to remember you, I want the name Austin to become legendary because it was YOUR name and you ARE legendary. I want everyone to know, but they wonâ€™t because you never got the chance to show them what I always knew you were capable of. You alone could have made or break this world. You would have been successful in anything you decided to do. Even if you ended up in jail, you would have turned that jail into your personal kingdom. You were the brightest light. And thatâ€™s why you burned out so quickly little bro, the world wasnâ€™t ready for you; Iâ€™m just so glad our family had the blessing of being able to spend most or all of our life with you. Your death will always be the greatest sorrow in life and itâ€™s sad that the world will never understand what theyâ€™ve lost.
I love u mijo!! Always. This is my son and he was the best! I miss him soo much, there are literally no words to describe what I feel!! I just want him back.
