Austin Paul Martin ~ 1997 - 2011 ~ It is with unspeakable pain and sorrow that we announce the sudden passing of Austin Paul Martin, in his home in St. Jacob’s on the evening of Friday August 19th. He was our life and we will deeply miss the joy and purpose he blessed us with for the past 14 years. If we are granted half of the strength and determination that Austin had, we can somehow make it through this. Our very special boy will be in many hearts and minds forever.
