"Our deepest sympathy is sent to you - Auntie Yvette, Gail and Diane.

I will always remember Uncle Austin for his jokes, smile and especially his tricks.

I remember him telling me how he made Diane disappear and appeared in another room and I was just there looking at him like 'really now'.  All that time he was so serious and convincing.

Continue to hang in there.

Michelle, Martina and Mencha"
