I hope everyone can find some sort of healing through this. I never met Austin, but man his fights were always fun to watch. The heavens got a champion up there with them. My families thoughts and prayers are with any of you hurting.

I just found about Austin’s passing this week , what a good kid, he sent me rocks from where ever he was living about a year or so ago. I still have them.

My condolences to the family. I’m praying for his little son.
