Our GOD IS AWESOME! I would never have imagined that we would have raised almost $20,000.00. I am so proud to call Bogalusa and the surrounding area home. We certainly have come together as a community when one of our own is need. A simple thank you is not enough but, THANK YOU! Thank you to everyone that has contributed to this fund, said prayers, brought food, and everything else that was done for Ashton's family and his Dad, Michael. Please lets see if we can make the $20,000.00 mark and God bless each and everyone that has touched the lives of this precious family.
Once again everyone has gone above and beyond. We thank you! Please remember that the funds will go toward medical expenses, funeral costs and if any money is left a headstone. Please consider donating so the Ashton's Dad will not have any expenses.
Ashton, age 6 was welcomed into this world November 21, 2007, and regrettably departed on April 22, 2014. The moment Ashton entered this world, he gave new meaning to life for his Daddy. Ashton was a child filled with joy and curiosity. Ashton was loved by everyone he met, but especially by his family. Ashton and his Daddy, Michael shared an undying love for one another. They expressed their love every single day. Ashton also loved Baby Alex, his younger brother and his older brother Anderson. Ashton was the best big brother anyone could ask for. Ashton would always make sure Baby Alex was taken care of and knew everything about life that he knew. Ashton was a ray of sunshine in everyone's life. His smile would brighten the darkest day. Ashton was loved by his classmates at Ben's Ford Christian School as well. Ashton made everyone, especially his Daddy, so proud of all of his scholastic accomplishments. Ashton also loved going to church and learning his Bible verses. Ashton would often recite Bible verses at church. Ashton had been sharpening his basketball skills, while also teaching Baby Alex how to dribble the ball with both hands. Ashton's proudest moment was looking forward to his upcoming Kindergarten graduation ceremony. Ashton was also happy to be entering the First Grade in the Fall. Ashton had a lifetime of things to achieve. Ashton's Daddy could not be more proud of his beloved son.
Ashton, Baby Alex and their Daddy (Mike) were thrilled to be able to spend time together. They always made the most of every moment. Ashton also loved going on boat rides, playing in the yard with his trucks, drawing beautiful pictures, and just being a kid. Ashton was a very strong-willed boy, and lived life to its fullest with the people who loved him.
Ashton has greatly impressed beautiful, lasting memories in the hearts of all who were blessed to know him. Ashton will be forever loved and celebrated by beloved family and dear friends, and will be greatly missed.

WOW! We have met the goal. $10,000.00 was a monetary guess on what would be needed. We have no idea how much it will all cost. Let's see how much more we can raise for The Ashton Garic Memorial Fund.
PLEASE KEEP GIVING and THANK YOU!
