You are on my mind today. I remember you for loving and caring for Austin while here at Nationwide Children's Hospital. Austin could not have had a more loving family. And I am sure you would say, "I could not have had a better son." He valued his life and his family. I am sad that he is not here with you. I am thankful to have known Austin. My prayer for you is that God will give you comfort and show you love during this major change in your lives. I pray for eternal peace and happiness for Austin. God Bless, Chaplain Ron Davis
