Jayme Sue Austin memorial draws a crowd

Jayme Sue Austin memorial draws a crowd

IMG_0779As a testament to the impact this murder had on the friends and family of Jayme Austin and the community the Lone Pine Fire Hall in Fairview was packed to the gills and the doors opened to allow participation from outside.

It was a moving and emotional service and afterward, as befitting the rural farm area and Jayme’s upbringing riding horses and carousing in the neighborhood, the stories were earthy and funny. My sons traveled up from California and I rushed over from an event I was participating in in Cottage Grove and I learned a lot about Jayme’s feisty spirit and how much her family will miss her.

To her family I hope they will hold themselves for better times. To Jayme, peace be upon you.

Avatar When my oldest son, a Marine, left for war and crossed the border from Kuwait into Iraq in March 2003 I started writing my conscience. After two tours that young combat veteran’s mother is now an ardent peace activist and advocate for social, environmental and economic justice. MGx has matured since those early vents and ramblings and now covers relevant and important local and regional matters in addition to national and global affairs.
