We shared so many great times together. I will never forget you, and you will always be in my thoughts. I Love you. Lindsey Tinney, February 21, 2012 My deepest sympathy goes out to Edward, the entire Pestana Family and the loved ones of Ashleigh. The tragic loss of such a young life is so painful to accept. It is hard to make sense of things during times like this and the coming days will be so difficult. I pray for peace and mercy to bless the family and friends who loved and adored Ashleigh. May you find comfort in the memories of happy days and strength in knowing time will heal your sorrow. With deepest sympathy, Victoria Barnes and Family Victoria Barnes, February 20, 2012 Even though I never met Ashleigh I feel like she was a Delicate but Beautiful Flower, I'm sending my deepest sympathy, and payers for the strength to hold on, to a family who has suffered a devastating tragedy. My heart breaks for your loss. Love Zandra Hamilton, February 17, 2012 We will keep all of Ashleigh's family and friends in our thoughts and prayers at this very difficult time. I am glad that I was able to see her at Christmas time since it had been many years since I had seen her. I do remember, all those years ago, her go, go, go personality and her laugh. She will be sadly missed, and lovingly remembered. With our deepest sympathy, The Armour Family Sam, Trisha, Nathan and David Trisha Armour, February 16, 2012
