Austin was a kind and very special young man. He touched many lives in his 16 years. I will miss him very much.

So sorry to hear about this, we prayed for the victim on Sunday at Greentree church but had no idea it was a local young man. I too live in Mont Clare and my youngest child just graduated from Spring-Ford. My thoughts are with you.
