  • Man oh man. Some stories I could tell you about Ashlee Nicole Sipes. She was so talented. So kind. So strong. So beautiful. A great mother, daugther and friend. I grew up with Ashlee from grade school all the way to high school where she was considered one of my best friends. We have done some stupid stuff in own life time but, those are the memories that I will cherish for the rest of my life. Words cannot describe how sad I am for Ruger and Steve especially but for her family and friends. She was so young and still have her whole life ahead of her. Sometimes in life the decision we make dosent always make sense. Sometimes the things we do we cannot take back. The worst about this whole situation is that there is a little boy who will never get the chance to see his mother again besides pictures or when he goes to bed and can dream about her. Its so heart breaking. Life is to shoot for so many. So please please take this time to pray foe this family during this hard hard time they are going to have to conquer during the ups and downs. Steve and Kim I love you guys so much. Ashlee was the best. She was very lucky to have you guys in her life and Steve you couldnt have done anything to change what has happened unfortunately. I will ALWAYS be here for you whenver you guys need help or a sitter or just someone to talk to. Reminisce about the all the good times. RIP babygirl you are forever in our hearts and souls. Gone but never forgotten. I love you and will see you on the other side Ash. You were one of the best friends anyone could ever ask for and im so so so so sorry that I was not able to be around to help you get thru whatever it was that you was going thru. LOVE YOU ALL SOO MUCH!!!!💔❤🙏🙏

  • Steve, there are no words to tell you how sad I feel at this moment. I will never forget the years you & she were our neighbor. Will be thinking of you in the coming days.

  • My heart goes out to the Sipes family for the loss of their daughter Ashley. My prayers and thoughts are with you all in this time of need. May God wrap his loving arms around you all in this and keep you whole. Prayers & Hugs.

  • So very sorry to hear about Ashlee. She always had a smile and a wave when we seen her in the neighborhood. If we can help during these difficult times please let us know. Lots of prayers for you and your family.

  • My deepest condolences at one of the saddest moments in your lives. May your hearts mend in time, as you see Ashlee’s memories live on through Ruger. Sometimes the road we travel has many twists, curves, and bumps along the way, but the straightest path cannot always heal the hurt. Ashlee had a big heart, and enough love to wrap the world, but my Ruger know her best embrace was the one she had for him. God’s blessing to each of you, who will forever hold a place in your own hearts. May God give you peace in her rest Steve, Kim, Chasity, and embrace you Ruger with neverending love.

  • I am so sorry. Ashley was a beautiful girl with a beautiful soul. Her smile could light up a room. I always enjoyed talking and laughing with her whenever we would run into each other. I will miss those conversations. My heart breaks for the entire family. Praying you all get through this. May God bless you. Rest in heaven with all of the other angels Ash.

  • To all of Ashlee’s family, I am so sorry for your loss. May you find comfort in your beautiful memories of her. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
