"She had the most beautiful eyes in the world," said Ashlynn's cousin Heidi Paree. "I think her random, 'I love you's' is what I'll remember most about Ashlynn."
One year after her death, the pain from losing Ashlynn is just as strong. Now her family wants to make sure no one else suffers like she did.
"I would not wish this pain on my worst enemy," said Ashlynn's cousin Kaylee Hughes. "If we can get the message out to get one kid or one adult to stop bullying, we consider that many lives saved. All of us need to stand together and look past all of our differences and find beauty in all of our differences. There are differences in all of us. We need to stand for each other and not fall for bullying."
Family members say Ashlynn killed herself because she was being bullied. After interviews and an autopsy, authorities say the evidence didn't support bullying as the specific cause of death.
