Tell us about your loved one.

Austin was the bright light in our world. Austin's father and I adored him. He had a smile that would light up a room. He was a beautiful soul. Austin loved life, but like a lot of young people in our society, he had his share of struggles. Austin experimented with recreational drugs and unfortunately fell into the grips of unattended misuse. I was trying to help him come to terms with his problem and get the support he found himself so desperately needing, but to our heartbreak he gave in to his addiction and took a drug that was laced with fentanyl unbeknownst to him and he was taken away from us forever. We live our life now full of grief and heartache. Our lives have forever changed. He was my only child, my reason for living. My heart is shattered beyond repair. I pray for a peaceful heart 🙏💔
