Austin was a very interesting guy with many interests and hobbies. He was funny with the ability to make you belly laugh. Austin loved fishing as you can see by the smile on his face in this picture. He loved any kind of fishing, whether at the edge of the creek or pond, on grandpa Mark's small boat or deep sea fishing. He also loved photography, his bull dog Tank, his jeep, playing football, glass art, supporting his high school football team and he loved to be there for listening and solving problems when you needed him. He has taught us all so much about living life with a positive outlook and we miss him every single day.

Brooke lived her life joyfully, deliberately, and at three times the pace of most anyone. Adventurous and fun, she was also public-spirited, full of grit and determination, and deeply loving. Absolutely there for all those in her life, she also eagerly embraced learning and challenges. An MD and internal medicine resident in the global health track at Stanford when she was diagnosed with osteosarcoma in February 2019, she aspired to improve cancer care in developing countries. She ultimately advocated on behalf of patient-centered medicine and taught us all much about grace.
Cailin was an avid competitive swimmer, medaling at Age Group Championships &earning a spot on the FL Zone Team. She attended Academy of Holy Names in Tampa, FL. She was equally strong in the classroom, recognized in 6th grade with the perseverance award, which is now named in her honor. Struggling for each breath, Cailin fought till the end. She smiled & said "Mommy, put your face next to mine." She then softly whispered, "Mommy, I GOT THIS!" Her final words proved she never lost hope.
Carmen was an extraordinary human! Her heart was huge. She cared about others more than she cared about what she was going through. She was smart and brave and was really going places in life. But osteosarcoma took that from her.
Carson Lewis was uniquely wonderful. He touched so many through his journey and continues to make us all better people. He believed everyone should be treated with kindness and he always stood up for anyone being treated unjust. He was a true warrior and fought so hard to live. He loved his sisters most and once said, “I’m so glad that it’s me with osteo and not one of my sisters. Because, I couldn’t bare watching them go through this.” He was the bravest, strongest, most wonderful person ever. He is love.
Carter had a joy for life and lived in the moment. He loved to spend his days climbing, biking, camping, swimming, and doing anything outside.

Catherine lived a life full of kindness, gentleness, good humor, warmth and love especially love for her 9 children and her husband Jim.

Dylan was kind sweet and funny. He looked out for the kids he was in treatment with and those who knew him remember his grin, and how he would go out of his way to say hello to people.
Gavin had what we lovingly called an "old soul," not too terribly concerned with the technology and trends of his peers. Instead he had a quiet wisdom and found passions that went well beyond his years: he cared deeply for others, he loved to work, and he was a true outdoorsman. Gavin was loyal to his family and friends with a keen awareness of the needs of others. He loved fiercely, and believed in doing what was right - even if it meant it was hard. Gavin was and is so very loved - and that will never change.
