On July 7,1999 at Northwest Medical Center in Springdale, AR Leviticus Danny Jackson Cline took his first breathe. Fourth and last child of Robert Floyd and Rosa Lee Sparks Cline. Soon after birth the family became aware that there was something medically wrong with him. He then had medical and mental issues the rest of his life. As a baby and young child he was in and out of many hospitals. Seen many specialists not only in AR but in MO and OK. He had a small handful of doctors that was loyal to him and his family and stood beside them while he grew and his issues became worse. As a young child his Autism became worse and with his other medical issues he became very hard to manage; but his family continued to love him and cared for him according to doctor advisement.
“And we know that for those who love God all things work together for good, for those who are called according to His purpose.” Romans 8:28
As he grew he outgrew some of the harder issues he had; and became a loving but difficult young man. He did have his moments (but as human don't we all?) His immune system had built up from years of being on antibiotics and being home bound so we were able to release him to Arkansas Support Network's care when he was 17.
“Have I not commanded you? Be strong and courageous. Do not be frightened , and do not be dismayed, for the Lord your God is with you wherever you go.” Joshua 1:9
Through ASN he was able to get an apartment for himself starting with full time staff to help him. Teaching him the things he needed to do to thrive on his own. In addition to his ASN staff his grandma Sparks and many of his great aunts loved and helped him thrive on his own for the past 8 years.
He did become his own person and chose a different lifestyle that was not always looked upon as 'right'. Even legally changing his name. Although to him this distanced him from his immediate family they never stopped caring, praying and loving him. Hoping and wishing only happiness and good things for him. God took care of him, as he was God's child before he was his family's child. God always had him in His care watching over him on his good and especially his bad days.
He did give his life over to God and was baptized on September 8, 2019 at First United Methodist Church in Springdale. He loved playing nerf wars with his friends, playing video games. And making videos even applied for American Idol. He loved music (one of his favorite was Ray Stevens silly songs he sang)
His friends have all said that he was always there to encourage them on their bad days, and was there with his silliness of jokes and stories to make them laugh on their good days. He was always trying to help change people attitude, helping them to think differently about life. One of his friends said “ Always told me tomorrow is never promised so don't take anything for granted.”
ASN and his close friends will never know how very much they meant to Levi and to his family for loving him and helping open doors to him that he never would have gotten living in the country with his parents.
“For everything there is a season, and a time for every matter under heaven: a time to be born and a time to die;a time to plant, and a time to pluck up what is planted; a time to kill, and a time to heal; a time to break down, and a time to build up; a time to weep, and a time to laugh; a time to mourn, and a time to dance;” Ecclesiastes 3:1-4
