    To the family of Austin Nina, It was my great privilege to be a caregiver and friend to Cynthia Nina. It was then that I met Austin and family. I always enjoyed my visits and have many great memories of smiles and laughter there. Liz, Joy and family, your father will always be so very special to me. I have saved his voice mail on my phone so I can always hear his voice ask me “hows your Mother?” Such a kind and gentleman he was. My heart and prayers go out to all of you. He left this world a better place for all who knew and loved him.
    Love and Hugs,
    Karen Meeks

    Grandpa Nina was a very special person to my little family. He always came to check on Josh, the kids, and I. He would just show up at our door with a jar of his beloved pepper sauce that we would put on everything. This is one the greatest families I have ever met and you all will always remain special to me. You all have my love and condolences during this time.

    We only got to know Austin at Lisa’s Home the past few years! He was always one who cared about people!
    Nancy and I enjoyed the times we had with him! He was a man’s man! For the family, remember God loved him too!
