I have found moments of pure delight during this dark time by remembering Ashley as her true self; joyful, funny, enduringly optimistic and inspiringly grateful.
What has really allowed me to enjoy these memories of her are a few videos, which I am so happy to share with all of you here.
This video was made by Ashley and Miguel's friend, Jocelyn R.C. and is a collection of videos taken by Danielle. Props to the best dance parents around who had Evie's dance routine completely memorized!
This one is an interview that Eric did with Ashley this past spring. Gosh, this girl was the absolute best.
And last, but not least, here is a photo album of some of the favorite memories and moments of this woman's precious and wonderful life.
After following the link, select the first photo, then you can click the 3 dots in the upper right hand corner and choose "Slideshow" from the dropdown menu (this may not work on mobile, but should work on a computer).
I hope these offer you equal moments of joy that they did for me,
