When Ashley was a child, her favorite things to do was drink chocolate milk and follow around her aunt and uncle, Aubrey and Zach. Her favorite activities growing up were getting her nails done, shopping and spending time with her best friends by her grandparents swimming pool. Ashley was famous for calling her grandparents and inquiring about how their day had been going and what their plans were for the rest of the week. Ashley had a curious mind and wanted to be involved in every aspect of her loved one’s lives. Her heart was as big as her smile and her presence always had a lasting impression.
