Ashley ,you were one of my favorite customers at Coffee Country when that was in town.I remember your daughter was just starting to walk ,and she was the cutest little thing going around all the tables. Then you became one of my customers at the Circle K store in Dummerston during the summer when you would go swimming down at the flat rocks .Then just a couple months ago,you came to the 7-Eleven where I was working ,I didn't know you were ill and am so sorry I didn't get a chance to say goodbye. Rest in peace beautiful girl and God Bless.
