On June 10, 2018, our lives were shattered. My son, Austin, was murdered by a drunk and drugged driver. I had the privilege and honor of being Austin’s mother for a very short 23 years before he was senselessly and cruelly taken from us. Since that date, I have started fighting to make laws stronger and fit the crime. Nothing for us will ever be the same. Nothing will ever be as happy and we will never be whole again. Our family was robbed of our precious Austin, the amazing brother, grandson, son, friend, worker. We love him more than anything and pray that we make a change. We want there to be no more victims. austinslanterns.com
