Some people poke your hearts. Ashley was so infectious. She got me to sing some country song with was the best times because little did she know I kind of hate country music and I murdered that song...they say only the good die young. I can’t believe it was her time already...My thoughts are with you all.

Doesn't matter if you knew Ashley for a minute or a lifetime, you will always remember meeting her. She had a sass all her own and a smile that was infectious. Peace be with her and everyone that was touched by having her in their lives. 💖

Hey girl, it seems like just yesterday we were dancing to the spicegirls in your kitchen. Thanks for sticking up for me when we were younger and being my best friend. You were my first example of a strong black girl and I'm thankful you helped me through it all. I missed you before and I will miss you even more now. I'm sorry we drifted apart but I never stopped thinking about you. I promise!!! We will always be connected. I'll see you again. Love you. Bye.
