Just a few days after Stevie turned 3, she sadly passed away. Ashley said she was there to hold her as she took her last breaths.
“Stevie Lynn Stock. 3 years old. Seed Planter. Miracle Maker. Light Giver. Heart Healer. Blue-eyed, dimpled smile, curly-haired forever baby girl,” Ashley shared on Instagram.
“Adored little sister, daughter, and friend. At 1:05 pm on May 27th, Stevie took her final breath in our arms.”
“There have been many miracles and countless God moments that I’ll put into words when my heart has strength.”

“For now, I’m overwhelmed with relief that she’s at peace but I’m also feeling crushed by a pain so intense I can’t put it into words.”
“I let it out a bit at a time, like when you gently twist the lid off a liter soda bottle…releasing the built-up pressure little by little to keep it from exploding all over the place.”
“I guess it’s like that. I’m twisting the lid on my grief gently. Because if I release it all at once, I don’t see how I could possibly survive.”

“Gentleness has been my most effective approach on grief these last months, gentleness for myself and for all the beloved mourners by my side.”
“We have complete faith in there being a greater purpose of this tragedy (and it’s already unfolding through your stories of renewed hope), but unfortunately, faith is not a “get out of pain-free” card, and that’s okay.”
“I don’t know how to do this, so for now we’ll continue one day at a time held by the grace of God, the support of loved ones and the prayers of strangers who have become friends.”
