  8. We met only once – in Conroe TX – and I believe God planned the meeting. It didn’t seem at the time that Austin was that close to going home. But I’m so glad he had faithful parents – and a faith of his own – and that he has no MD and we will see him again. All my love and admiration are yours. Blessings
