We tried to gather some financial assistance by setting up a GoFundMe account, but sadly it was in vain. As was the effort to garner some help from well-known figures in Ohio.
I, to this day, think that I let Ashley down, to a degree. Mainly because I overestimated the power I have. I hope Ash rests in peace. I am still saddened by the fact that I couldn't help her.
I first started talking to Ashley back in March of 2007 when she filled out the Tallwomen.org Questionnaire. I thought long and hard about whether or not I should be publishing this, but I think I helps to explain what kind of person Ashley was. She was kind and gentle, but also hurt because she never experienced the love she should have felt. I am not going to go into details, but her family didn't help. Let's put it this way.
I also decided to bring the Facebook Page back in order to celebrate Ashley's life. I know I should probably have deleted it, but I am too sentimental for my own good. I miss you, Ashley.
