My prayers are with this family. Two young men came up to my home on plainfield pike and asked us to call for help for this family. There is little cell service out here in Greene so I am hoping our call for help got there in time. Sending positive energy and prayers their way.

Over the last couple of days I have been trying to find out how the little Ashton was making out. This has consumed my thoughts from the moments that they took him away in the ambulance till now. When I arrived at the accident site, I saw your son and started giving him CPR being extra careful because of possible neck injuries. I am deeply saddened by his struggles and your families pain but hoping for the best every moment.
