    This is Margie Blair, Austin Wyatt’s grandmother. I was so sorry to hear of Allie’s grandfather’s death. I know how much Austin thought of him; and Brad, too, has spoken what a good guy he was. I used to hearAustin speak of he and Allie going over there to swim at their pool. My condolances to all of you and hope that grandma Bennett does well as Brad said she has been sick too. You are in my prayers! God Bless.
