21 Thoughts on “Remembering

  1. Mother Theresa on February 21, 2014 at 4:17 pm said:

    Asti hardly ever called me “Mom”, I was fondly referred to him as Mother, which he pronounced as “Mothahhh” like a true Mainer. This started in the winters that we spent in Stoneham, ME at the Evergreen Valley Inn as we met with all our friends who are part of the International Turtle Club. He was never officially indoctrinated into the club but as a Jr. Turtle he enjoyed bottle bowling down the long hallways, snowmobiling at midnight up the nearby mountain, and participating in many unmentionable shinanigans. Those memories will always be precious!
    Love, Mothahhhh Theresa

      Thank you for the comment and photo; Asti, for such a rough guy, loved children….and if Jada is any indication, they loved him. Again, thank you!

    Asti taught me to ask all of my sons’ friends who their mom and dad are. I didn’t realize this young man was the son of my high school best friend. Sadly I know that now.

    snow boarders.

    We will never forget Asti. His smile and laugh were contagious! We will always remember all the good memories of hangout at camp in andover!! You will be forever in our hearts. This summer there will be alot of remembering you and we will “Drink A Beer” for you.. Every time I hear that song I remember him! Asti was one of the best people we were lucky enough to know… Hopefully justice will be served! <3

    A ‘ GENTLE’ man is what I always saw in this young man that I first met when was 7 years old.

    A GOOD man has been taken from this world that needs more LIKE him.

    Let justice prevail.

    I remember meeting Asti for the 1st time as a handsome young boy, out working with his dad! Out and about picking up supplies on those old wooden floors of the WL Blake building. As a father myself, I was forever struck by the image of the moment. I imagined the adventures and learning experiences that they would share together as father and son. And knowing his father as I did, I couldnt think of a more wonderful future for any child! The places they would go… the things they would see… And Oh! The stories they would someday tell.
    No one should ever lose a child, and I deeply share in the grief of this loss with my friend…
    But I do trust that in the course of time, justice will be done. And for now, we can take comfort in the special memories of him, that each of us keep in our heart…

    My heart goes out to the family and friends of this young man. This happened not far from where I live and, having kids around the same age as Asti, it breaks my heart. If there’s some way I can help, please contact me. I’m keeping my eyes open. Is there a facebook page dedicated to the pick up truck and what it looks like? I would be happy to promote that!

    • JFA Admin on March 14, 2014 at 7:01 pm said:

      There isn’t a specific sight dedicated to the pick-up truck, but we can add it to the website or you can post a link on your own page and ask friends to
      share one of the local stories that may have more impact, perhaps one that recently came out that includes the picture of the truck along with the video of the
      possible witnesses. Thank you so much for keeping us in your thoughts. I hope they find the person(s) who did this soon. I think a lot of people will sleep
      a lot better at night.

    The first summer that Ben bought his log cabin, taking the yota out behind his house, determind to get ourselves to the All Wheels Off Road Park, Asti jumped out of the bed of my pickup and sawed his way through the last tree that was standing in our way…well Ben isn’t allowed to go on that trail anymore and I think that started our wheeling obsession. I’ll never forget that weekend and I’ll forever love Toyotas… And you. Missing your wisdom, your laughs, and most of all you! Wheeling just won’t be the same, jeep or Toyota! Scoop mother F_%?!Nh dunk! Love you guy!

    I did not know Tim but I search the news everyday as this tragic incident happened about 20 miles from my home. I am searching for the vehicle and I am certain there are more people out there like me. I saw your recent video on CNN about people forgetting and moving on with their lives. I just want you to know that I keep my eyes open. I will continue to search.

    The day you walked into my life little buddy you captured my heart and changed my sole. I could write a novel about thousands of things that you did and we did together that helped to turn me from a self centered 26 year old guy to a step dad that centered his whole world around you. I will cherish your love and your smiles forever Asti. You were a special little kid, an even more special big kid and an incredibly special big, big kid. May your goodness and love help us all to be better people as we carry your torch until its our time go and meet with you again. So its with those words I don’t say “goodbye” my dear Asti. I will just say “see ya later buddy”
    Your “Step” Dad,

    I lived in Franklin County, Pa most of my adult life but now live in Virginia, some 200 miles from there. Even though I am far away, want to let the Davison Family know that I won’t forget Timothy and am also looking for that truck, along with my daughter. We have fond memories of Franklin County, so any news of that area draws our attention but since no one knows where the person or persons who took your son’s life may be, our eyes are open here for you and wanted you to know that.

    I live in the area where this senseless crime occured and this is still very fresh in my mind. I didnt personaly know Asti but I have friends and family that great people as it sounds like he was. It could have very easily been anyone’s family member or friend that was targeted on that night. What bothers me right now is that I no longer hear anything about this in the local news. I believe that it is important to keep this fresh in peoples minds. I prey every day that the coward responsible for this is brought to justice. I also prey for the family and friends of this young man.

  16. Lesa on July 2, 2014 at 10:18 am said:

    I live in Greencastle and was and still am shocked by this senseless act. I travel 81 on a regular basis and think of this young man often. Like so many others, I pray the responsible coward is found and brought to justice. I want the family to know, I will continue to be another set of eyes and ears on your behalf. God Bless you.

  17. I too live in Greencastle and I drive that stretch of 81 many times a week on my way to work. That dark blue pickup is etched in my memory and I’ll never stop looking for it. Your peace and healing are in my prayers. My deepest condolences to your family.

    Amen to all of the above.

    God Bless You
