    Sorry to hear of your loss. If this tragedy was the result of the accident where two girls were killed between Denton and Gainesville, the folks at my parents church in my hometown (Denison) are praying for you, your family and the others also involved. Regardless, I shall remember you in my prayers.

        I am so sorry for your loss. I went back and read some of your daughters posts and it seemed that she was full of such energy and a great drive to be a firefighter. The world needs a few more people like her. My prayers are with your family.
        God Bless and Stay Safe.

                  The moment I read the first few lines, my heart went into my throat, and it was very hard to choke back down. I have read many of your daughters posts, and even replied. Such a terrible loss for you, your family, and the fire service. I only wish everyone was as dedicated as your little girl. You have my deepest sympathy.

                    I received this news with a tear in my eye because I felt as if I new her. My condolences to all her family and close friends. Even over the 'Water' the pain can be felt. She will be sadly missed by all that had the pleasure to know her.

                    My thoughts and prayers are with you all at this tragic time.

                      ... And all who know this life
                      Know it too briefly.
                      And all who leave this life
                      Leave it too soon...

                      Words cannot adequately express the sadness in my heart upon hearing of Ashley's death.
                      Her enthusiasm and dedication to her dream spoke volumes to her character and vision.

                      Earth has no sorrow that Heaven cannot heal.

                      My thoughts are with you as are my prayers.

                              On Behalf of Ferrum Volunteer Fire Dept. & Ferrum Volunteer Rescue Squad we offer our condolences. Know that you and your family will be in our prayers.

                              I saw your daughters post just this past Thursday or Friday and I made a note to myself that I would reply to her today. It pains me deeply to know that I missed the opportunity to begin to know what appeared to be a very bright & determined young lady.

                              I pray that God's peace will be with you and your family as well as with your new family here. Even though she had not met her dream of becoming a firefighter yet - the fire service lost a great candidate and her presence will be missed.
