Austin left us tragically, on Friday May 31, 2019. There are no words to describe the pain and heartbreak felt by so many. We all loved him and will miss him desperately for many different reasons. Austin leaves behind his mother Gini & step-father Fritz, grandfather Garnett, daughter Willow, girlfriend Melissa, brother Jimmy and sister Cadie. This funeral will be a huge financial burden on his family. No mother should ever have to make funeral arrangements for her child and in doing so; she certainly shouldn’t have to wonder how to pay for them. I humbly ask that we come together as one big family and put our arms around her and support her right now. They are all so deeply hurt and standing in need of our support right now.
If you are led to help financially, please do so. It can be foreseen that the financial impact on the family will be deep and every little bit will help, it will be a blessing to the family. All funds will be directly deposited into Gini’s account. If you know the family personally, feel free to support them directly.
Please PRAY for the Atkinson family, for the Lord to give them strength to weather this storm. When we are too weak to stand, it is then that we must lean on our friends and family to hold us up. Let’s hold them up.
"Blessed are those who mourn, for they shall be comforted" (Matthew 5:4).
