    Time seemed too short that you were in our lives
    Yet you instilled within us your grace and presence
    in such a way as to endear deeply into our hearts and souls. The memories of you and Ash’s love and friendship was of a beauty not oft seen and most treasured as seen in Ash’s eyes upon your smile and laughter, your kindness and love.
