Augustus’ parents are kind and hopeful people. They find hope in the platitudinous sayings they have embroidered and hung all over their house and have trust in God. Hazel watches them cope with Augustus’ death, which gives her hope that her family will survive her own passing. The family comes together after Augustus’ dies, and although Hazel feels as if she is not fully a part of the family after Augustus passes, his father tells Hazel that he is glad she was part of Augustus’ life, which means a lot to her.
