  4. Lexi was a great and caring friend I could have asked for she was so bright man it’s been awhile and every day that goes by I think of her sweet voice. Girlie I’m glad your in a good place.

  5. Lexie was a big part at T-West High school. She cared for everyone, even me. Lexie was that one person who put everyone before her. I am one of her good friends, I am currently a T-west student. When I saw the posts on facebook. I told myself this isn’t real, she could not have done that. Later I found out the hard way. She will always be in our hearts and memory.
    Rest in piece Lexie. We all loved you as you loved us.

  6. Aunt Roxanna, I never met Ellexis but I do have to say I am very sorry for your loss. Prayers are coming from my family; Michele, Kenneth, Kristopher, Kathryn, and Connie. She was my cousin and I love her even though I never met her. She was and still is family. I love you.

  7. My daughter was friends with her at Topeka West. Your loss is such a shock. She was “insanely funny”, as my daughter tells it. I was actually looking forward to meeting her this summer.

    Our hearts go out to you at this difficult time.

  8. We enjoyed having Lexi over after church. She was a good friend to the boys and a joy to have at youth group.

  9. My son and daughter, Wesley and Madison Lowrey both went to Topeka West with your daughter. We had the pleasure of seeing her perform at their most recent choir concert, she was vibrant and beautiful and certainly stood out in the crowd! My kids, both choir kids are older than your daughter and did not know her well but were both affected and saddened at your loss. Our prayers and thoughts are with you and family and pray Gods peace & comfort in the days and months ahead.

    Jim, Marilee, Wesley, Madison & Wyatt Lowrey
