At the service, Kallie Wright described her late son as being somebody who was “was impossible to get mad at.”

On June 21, Kallie offered some advice to other parents in a post marking the one month anniversary of Levi’s accident, beginning with letting loose more often.

“Don't just take your kids to do fun things, do those fun things WITH them!” she wrote. “Get in the pool, get on the swing, go down the slide, run through the sprinklers, sled down the hill etc. You get the idea!”
