A Tribute to Ashley: October 14, 2002 – March 20, 2008

Ashley Peterson (5), daughter of Emily and Paul Peterson, passed away last night after a valiant fight against cancer.

Ashley attended my daughter Naomi’s preschool.  You can read more about their journey at their Caring Bridge web page.

My heart is broken thinking of the suffering of this wonderful family, but I am comforted through my faith, belief in God and a spiritual life beyond our earthly existence.

    That just breaks my heart. I can’t even imagine how hard it must be for your friends.

    A dear friend has battled with her son’s brain tumor for many years now. It was hard to watch her active, vibrant child become unable to speak or walk. They have met wonderful families and have grieved with some of them as they suffered the great loss of a child. My heart breaks with empathy for those families, and for your friends. Everything else I typed in this space sounded so trite and cliche, I just had to delete it. So, “I’m sorry” is all I am left with.

    I feel the same way with having trouble expressing how I feel without sounding cliché. Many thanks for sharing Mo and Marilyn.
