Ashley embodied Jesus in so many ways. Some of you know her from the opening story in A Praying Life where she lost her contact while on a camping trip. She's also in Love Walked Among Us playing hockey and on that same family camping trip. You can read my reflections on her life, which I shared at the service, here.
Hearing of Ashley's life and love will build your faith. I know it is a long video, so if you just want to hear family, you can focus on:
- :11-:40 Minutes—Jill and I, followed by Ashley's five siblings—Kim, Courtney, Emily, Andrew and John.
- 1:12-1:47 Minutes—Dave Frearson, Ashley's husband. Dave's faith in the face of losing his wife is remarkable.
Four of Ashley's friends shared as well. They all give us a sense of Ashley's love, but if you only had time to hear one, I'd listen to Judy Yoon (:57-1:03).
Your love and prayers are helping us to see Jesus in the midst of our grief, and we are so deeply grateful.
