Shawn, Laura, Luke, and Bridget when I saw Levi’s name in the obituaries my heart sank. I remember the little boy with the big grin and the dark brown eyes who would crawl up in my lap and snuggle, he was an adorable child. I pray that, through God, you find the strength and courage to weather the days ahead. Love to you all

Ashton was an amazing person. They would always help me. They taught me that you should live like there is no tomorrow, that life is short so have fun, and that you should be here for a good time not a long time. Ashton had amazing friends and they died with so many memories in their heart. If you knew Ashton you would know that they were such a funny person to be around. They were always smiling and seemed so happy. Im not going to weep about losing you, Ashton, instead i’m going to be happy that you’re truly and completely happy now. You will forever be close to my heart, lee-vee.

i’ll see you soon.💚

I didn’t know him that well but anytime I would talk to him he would make my day 10x better. I won’t forget the last day of school when Natalie and him were making plans for the next week and he was like, “ I’m free whenever just hit me up”. He will always be remembered.

Ashton was one of those people that when you see them the hallway, walking towards you, you could only think of the happiest thoughts. But, sadly this amazing person who only did good things for others was taken from us at such a young age. He was simply an amazing and courageous person. He could never be replaced or forgotten. We have so many incredible memories. It causes great sadness that I am currently in Wisconsin and not able to make the funeral. But, I wanna thank ashton for all of the wonderful and amazing things he has done for my friends and I. He wasn't like anyone you've ever met. He was one of a kind. That is why it is so hard to see him leave so early. My prayers go to family and friends. Please if you need to talk to anyone, please do talk.

Words can’t describe how amazing of a person Ashton was. Although we only shared one year together getting to know each other it’s something I’ll cherish forever . I’ll never forget how nice he was to everyone. Ashton was the most unique carefree person I’ve ever met. You could be having the worst day but as soon as you see him your day is instantly better. One thing I’ll never forget is his heartwarming smile and all the jokes he made. I remember when he walked me out of school on my last day and we talked about how sad it was going to be since we won’t have anymore classes together. So Ashton insisted that we can still message each other and hang out lol💙. He was truly an angel on earth and I’m going to miss him so much .

I was introduced to Levi at Sophomore orientation by my mother, he was one of her former students from Emge Junior High School. She told me about how awesome of a person Levi was, and as I'm always ready to add another friend to my roster, I decided Levi would be the newest edition. I found him on Facebook and sent a message. I asked rather awkwardly if he wanted to be friends, and judging by the generous amounts of exclamation points he put on his text, he seemed as excited as me to have a new friend. After that, we didn't have very many interactions. I planned to spend time with Levi this summer, hoping I could get to know more about him. But as life would have it, that opportunity was taken from me. Part of me will always regret not trying to reach out to Levi more, but I am thankful for all the time I had with him.

I hope to see you again, friend.

Ashton was a person in my life I didn’t know I needed until I met them. We knew each other for a short time; enough time for me to fall in love with their personality. I mentally thank my friend Chase everyday for giving me the opportunity to be friends with Ashton and have them in my life. Ashton’s heart was so big and they were so full of life all the time. I could ALWAYS count on them to bring me some positivity and laughter whenever I needed it. They were such a good listener and I could make jokes with them about anything, something that I will cherish and remember about them every day. They absolutely deserved the entire world. I love Ashton with all my heart, and I’m so honored to be able to call them a friend while they were alive. I hope Ashton now realizes how much we truly loved them and how broken our hearts are. May Ashton Rest In Peace.
