Jon,Molly & Brooke,
         The fortitude & grace that you manage to display is an affirmation of you as a family. Please know that after all this time there are very few days that you are not in my thoughts & on my daily prayer list . Your strength through your pain is monument to your love & concern for each other . I only want you to know that you are have not been forgotten. There are many of us who keep your intentions foremost in our hearts.
     I hope that I haven't touched a nerve and if so , please forgive the ramblings of an old man. Blessings & Peace Ted Sullivan

I came across this poem i wrote in 2008...I have know Austin since 2nd grade and it seems like just yesterday I was in PE with him at CVMS. Now your that your gone, tears stream down my face. Your life was short, but now I know your in a better place. It seemed like yesterday we were here on earth together. I will miss you forever. Gone, gone, gone. Such a wonderful young man, loved by many. I will miss you Austin Jon. The pain built up inside, and you left me teary eyed. Twenty five weeks have past, and I still can’t fully believe that your will never come back. This death was painful for all. Keeping my tears in is something I still lack. I pray for the ones who loved you, and for the ones who made you blue. Gone, gone, gone. Such a wonderful young man, loved by many. We will miss you Austin Jon. The pain built up inside, and you left us teary eyed. Forever In My Heart! <3
Jane a mom January 30, 2010

While looking to find what day of the week my daughter was born on (She was born on Feb. 22, 1994.) I found this website. I noticed the dates of precious Austin's life. He has my Sarah's Birthday exactly and my husband's Birthday as his Homegoing to Heaven. I cannot imagine the sorrow. Having read many of the Condolences that others have posted, I have found myself drawn to this family. New prayers are with you this day. May God bless you and continue to restore your peace.

Love Forever a family of four April 7, 2009
Austin was a very special person. Not to only every one he meet but even beyond that. Since Austin leaving this world many positive impacts have come. Austin has inspired many kids to live their life to the fullest. I believe god called Austin because he was and is an amazing person. Every time I see john can see the pain in his eyes but I think inside the pain comes from the proudness had and has for his son. Molly has been so tough through this whole time. I couldn't imagine loosing a son at such an early age. I thought it was lovely that brooke still played volleyball! She is good at the sport and I was happy to find out she was playing. Brooke and Austin both excell at sports! Their family of four always remains in memories and in life
Brooke To all of Austin's friends April 6, 2009

I would just like to thank all of Austins friends for all of the support you have given me and my family. When I see any of his friends, it reminds me of Austin. Thank you for honoring Austin and remembering him. My family and I really appreciate your support. God bless..

Todd Whear Family Our Prayers March 20, 2009

Dear Jon, Molly and Brooke and the rest of the Park clan-

I wanted to let you know that our family still prays for your family. Jon, when we embraced at the service, I could feel your anguish...and still do. Your loss has deeply affected myself and my family. It is one of the reasons I have not written sooner. But, it does not mean that we have forgotten Austin. We pray for Peace within your souls, Joy within your hearts and Smiles upon your faces. May the Lord watch over your family as He walks with Austin.

Tasha McCann Missing you all February 5, 2009

I just wanted to let you guys know you are always on my mind. Not a day goes by that I don't think of ALL of you and I miss you guys... I wanted to thank you all for so many great memories through out the years! Thank you for trusting me and helping me grow with your kids... It means so much to me.  My love for children really grew when I was introduced to your family, Austin and Brooke became like my own kids, I loved them so much! They definitely were my favorite kids to baby-sit! I remember when Austin was older and I came to baby-sit he would get so excited to show and talk to me about all these foreign places that I had no clue about!! Here I am in High School and a 6th grader is showing me up.... which he did a lot!!! Man he was so smart!!! Anyway, I love you guys and have you in my heart and prayers all the time.

Heidi (Feil) Neilson checking in January 28, 2009

Just checking in to see how everyone is getting along.  Jon, I saw your Dad at Leland Arigoni's memorial service and told him how I think of you guys every day.  Please know that you are always in the thoughts and prayers of so many on a daily basis.


Lynda and Mike Mellows Heartstrings January 8, 2009

Jon, Molly and Brooke,

Our travels have taken us places these past weeks since we were able to come down and visit with you in Smith Valley, but our heartstrings are constantly full, thinking of you and continually praying for angel wings to lift you daily.  I (Lynda) am at the moment winding wire to make a heart shaped beaded gift with a cross and think of Austin and ALL of YOU! through every strand of bead.  I am so grateful that we are friends because friends can support each other through life's journey when the road seems unbearable and even when the sun shines.  Please call on us anytime, anywhere....if even for a cup of coffee or a glass of wine.  We care about you all. 

Love and Hugs,

The Mellows 

Dina Maxwell Thinking of you and praying January 6, 2009


I am a friend of Stacey's (and Katie and Tonja and Sue, too) and have been thinking of your whole family since Sue sent the email to my mom...


There isn't anything I can say other than Austin sounds like a wonderful young man, a wonderful son, nephew, grandson and friend.  I hope lots and lots of people write about their memories of him on this page for you to read and re-read in the future.

My thoughts and prayers are with you.



Jamie Cutler Always thinking of you January 2, 2009

Park Family,


I don't personally know you, but I am an acquaintance of Austin's aunt.  You have a beautiful family, filled with love and lots of hope and strength.  My heart aches for you every day that you have to live without your son. My deepest condolenses. I have a daughter Austin's age, and also a younger son and daughter that are very close that remind me alot of the relationship that your children had.  I can tell by your beautful photos that you have a very loving and close family.  This all hits very close to home as you never know what the future has in store for each and every one of us.  I pray that the Lord provides you the strength and courage to get through, knowing one day you will be together again.  I visit Austin's page often..he is a beautiful child that is your Angel now!  God Bless you and your family.....Take Care..Stay Strong......

Wendy Gansberg Friend December 27, 2008

Dear Jon, Molly and Brooke,

I have sat down and started to write to you at least 10 times.  Each time I just delete what I have written because I don't know the right words to say.  Well, this time I still don't have the right words, but I will tell you that I pray for all of you multiple times during each day.  The loss your family has endured brings tears to my eyes each and every day!!  My heart aches for you and I can't imagine the pain you all feel.  We all know Austin is in a better place, it is all of us that are left behind that feel so helpless.  Know that our entire family loves all of you and are here if you need anything!  WE LOVE YOU PARK FAMILY!!!

Wendy Smalley 

old friend Austin will always be with you December 26, 2008

Jon, Molly and Brooke...

I think about you every single day!  I thought about you all day on Christmas Eve and Christmas Day.  My heart goes out to all of you...:(  I hope you were able to find some peace, a  few smiles and appreiciate what is right before you.  We were all born to die and none of us know the path ahead.  There is so much more playing apart in the big picture. Its too bad our hearts can hurt us so physically, becasue it makes us sometimes miss all the good still around us and recongnize our wonderful gifts.  Please read the book "The Shack" When you feel you desire to seek some comfort.  Its a quick read and worth it in the end when you are finished.  Just to shed a little light and bring bit of peace.

All my love as a mother, sister and a friend :)

Kirk and Mary Kay Kinne We are grateful December 23, 2008

Austin, 11 years ago, you and your sister Brooke were the "Stars" at my daughter's wedding. You were special then. You are special now. We thank you for the part that you played in that beautiful marriage.


Our thoughts and our prayers are with you and most certainly with your mom, dad, Brooke and your very special grandparents.

The love of four. Trust. December 23, 2008

Praying for your family Held December 19, 2008

this song is by Natalie Grant "held"

Two months is too little.
They let him go.
They had no sudden healing.
To think that providence would
Take a child from his mother while she prays
Is appalling.

Who told us we'd be rescued?
What has changed and why should we be saved from nightmares?
We're asking why this happens
To us who have died to live?
It's unfair.

This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we'd be held.

This hand is bitterness.
We want to taste it, let the hatred know our sorrow.
The wise hands opens slowly to lilies of the valley and tomorrow.

This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we'd be held.

If hope is born of suffering.
If this is only the beginning.
Can we not wait for one hour watching for our Savior?

This is what it means to be held.
How it feels when the sacred is torn from your life
And you survive.
This is what it is to be loved.
And to know that the promise was
When everything fell we'd be held.
Tami Seddon friend December 19, 2008

Jon, Molly, and Brooke,

Know that you are in my prayers daily, actually many times each day.  I can't imagine losing a beloved child and I know how much you loved Austin.  Our only consolation is knowing what a loving and merciful God we have.  Let Him be your safety net and place of peace.

Psalm 121

Robert Shawhan Friend December 16, 2008

Dear Jon, Molly, and Brooke,


     It seems like only yesterday when you moved away.  You were the best neighbors and I still remeber little Austin running around, whether he was coming over to my house, playing catch in the front yard with Jon.  Every morning I saw him at the bus stop.  It is definetely true, he had that big ole smile and when it lite up, you couldn't help but feel warm inside.  Although I hadn't seen him in the last couple years, he seemed to have grown into a fine young man.  He looks just like Jon and he was sure to have a bright future.  My heart goes out to all of you that he is gone, but I wish him the best in his next journey.  I know he'll do just fine.  For the rest of my life I'll always hope my neighbors are as wonderful and kind people as you all were.  No one will ever be able to replace the kid across the street with the big brown eyes. 


My best wishes to you,

   Robert Shawhan

Dear Park Family - My heart is broken for all of you and for all the Austin was and could have been.  I remember him as a little boy at MES, sitting with his friends during lunch time.  And I remember what a good geography student he was.  I will always carry him in my heart.  Sending sympathy and love to you all, Dr. Pirtle

I remember Austin from Minden Elementary where I was a playground aide and a reading tutor.  I was so shocked and saddened to hear of his passing. He was always a lovely, thoughtful boy. Austin was very special and a pleasure to know.

My prayers to all his family. My God bring you peace at this sad time.

Karen Godmother December 9, 2008

Dear Austin,


I am having such a difficult time finding the right words to say...The right words to say to you and the right words to say to your mom, dad, and sister.  Even though it is difficult to put my true feelings into spoken words, I just want you to know that I was very proud and honored to be your Godmother.  I remember when your Mom asked me to be your Godmother and how important and special I felt to be included in your life.  I will always cherish the memories when you were a baby and small boy.  You were always so full of smiles and laughter.  I know it was due to the fact that you were always surrounded by so much love.  I remember spending time with you, your mom, "Mimi" and "Boppa Mike."  Your mom and I would drive down for summer visits.  I will never forget those days and all the fun times.  Even though we became busy with our own lives and didn't stay as close as we were when you were little, I was always aware how special you were and how proud your parents were of you and your accomplishments.  I thank God that I was given the opportunity to be your Godmother and I am comforted to know that you are now at peace in God's embrace.  Someday, Austin, I will see you again and be able to watch over you.  Until then, please watch over your Mom, Dad, and sister. 





Mike & Marsha Bluto To the Park Family December 9, 2008

Jake Olsen (CC FFA) FFA member December 9, 2008

Dear Park Family,


My heart truly goes out to your family.  Losing a family member is one of the hardest things anybody has to deal with in life.  For the last year and a half i have dealt with the loss of my mother.  It is truly the hardest thing i have ever had to do.  The only way i have gotten through it is because i have stuck close to my family and GOD.  My faith in Jesus Christ is my saving grace.  Austin will always be in your hearts and you will meet again with him on that glorious day when we will all meet in heaven and are re-united with our loved ones.  I wish the best for your family.

Brenda Quilling Friend, former office partner December 8, 2008

Dearest Molly, Jon, and beautiful Brooke,

I cannot express my heartfelt sadness for you.  I do not know how broken hearts keeps beating.  I do not know why bad things happen to good people other than God loves us all equally.  It's the only thing that makes sense sometimes when nothing else seems to add up perhaps.  He has His plan, and I pray that you find peace and comfort through this most unbearable time.  Thank you for the memories of our families being together for floor tile, playdates, football, rambunctious Rainbo, skiing, and a very special first Communion.  He will always be near and dear to our hearts.      

Travis & Petrina French May Gods Healing Power Continue To Bless You December 8, 2008

Jon, Molly, & Brooke,


Our family hasn't been able to put into words what our hearts truly feel until now.  Your loss, has been our pain.  We have been blessed to have witnessed such great love within a family. Austin's  memory will live in our hearts from here to eternity.  He was such a great kid, and we feel blessed to have known him.  May God's love and healing power continue to wrap his loving arms around your family and comfort you in this time of such great pain.  


We Love You, God's Blessing Always
