    There are no words to express how saddened we are. You have been such a huge part of our family from the day you and Janelle became friends. I still laugh when I think about the time I walked into Janelle’s room only to find the two of you sitting on the floor laughing while wearing a strip of material around your heads from the blankets you were making (skeleton blankets of course). I have so many happy memories that I will treasure forever.
    You were more than a friend to Janelle, you were family. We are so thankful to have had you in our lives. I will miss our talks, laughter and your beautiful smile. You were taken much too soon. May you rest in peace.
    We Love and Miss You,
    Kenny and Cindy

    You are forever in my heart Ashley.
    During the ten years that we knew one another we shared many happy times and conversations about your absolute love for all things “Halloween”, as well as your July 18th birthday which you shared with my eldest son.
    We laughed,complained,and cried together–everything that creates a bond with a special person .
    You deeply touched ” MY” life as I am
    absolutely certain you touched many others.
    It is so difficult to know that I will no longer see that smiling face of yours again and that is, and will always be , a hugh loss .
    I loved knowing you and am so proud to have had the privilege of saying that.
    So long sweet girl.
    Where ever you are now, I am certain that you are making a friend and making everyone laugh.

Send your condolences.
