Listen, I’ve never done anything like this before on the blog. I like to keep everything that goes up on the site entertaining, fun and pretty much an escape from reality, but If I can get 1 person to attend her funeral service, then I think I did something positive. She deserves the world. Everyone who knew Ashley knows exactly how BIG her heart was. I know everyone likes to use the phrase “She’d give you the shirt off her back”, but she literally would do just that. She always put everyone before herself. She had a heart of gold. She was a saint.
There won’t be a viewing for Ashley, just a funeral service at 8:30am with a mass following at 10:00 am. So hopefully everyone that’s ever been touched by Ashley can all take an hour off of work/school and send her off with one last goodbye. I know she’d love to see you there. It would mean the world to her and her close friends and family.
Funeral Service will be at St. Laurence Church in Old Forge, Friday at 8:30 am
