My wife and I wish to extend our condolences to the family of Levi. He was a good friend, a good man and he will be missed. May the Lord grant you comfort in your time of sorrow and the peace of knowing that he was a good Christian man who we will look forward to seeing in Heaven. May he look after his little girl and his wife from up above. I am sure he will be smiling when he is looking at both of you.

To the family, I am so sorry for your loss and will keep you in my thoughts and prayers. Words cannot adequately express the sorrow in my heart for Levi's passing. He was without a doubt one of those special people that not many have the privilege of calling a friend, son, or brother. I shared many memories with him and I still carry them with me today. He was always a kind and caring person who was an even better friend. He will be forever missed, but never forgotten.

Lhan, Lisa, Katrina and family. We offer thoughts and prayers of comfort for you at this time of loss. We are numbered among the many people that had the pleasure of knowing Levi. We appreciate that Jeff knew Levi as both friend and team mate. His leadership, fire and encouragement helped a number of Marietta athletes to push harder and leave it all on the mat or field. We only have good memories of watching and talking with him. We have the promise of being reunited with Levi one day. Please seek the comfort of Jesus at this time and during the coming days. Thank you for sharing him with us. Jack and Debbie Hansis
