    Gail and family—there are no words to express how very sadden we are by this. I loved that sweet little boy when he was in preschool. His dad went on a business trip to Japan and Austyn had him bring back a Japanese doll for me. It has sat on a shelf (still in the box) ever since I got it. I always think of him when I see it and it will be even more precious when I look at it now. Our deepest Sympathy to all and know you are all in our thioughts and Prayers. May God Bless you all and comfort you.
