Ashley was taken far to early from us and in the most awful way imaginable. I would love to be able to give her family the money they need to honor her memory properly. And if there is any money leftover I will start a charity in her honor.
 We hit our goal and now we are raising money to start a charity or a fund in her honor. Everyone is amazing. I cannot believe the outpouring of love and support from out community!

So we are already $15,000 In memorial relayed expenses. We would like to cover those costs and still keeping her name alive by raising awareness. I have a few things brewing to do in NJ but I know we can do something amazing here too.
A big thank you to Corie Kunneman if CR Chicks PGA for donating food tonight. You and CR Chicks were one of her favorites!

It was brought to my attention that the family may be taxed on the money because they are not a 501c and $10,000 may not cover the entire funeral. Thrte will also be time from work missed due to a trial etc So let's keep this going!

It can cost well over $10,000 for funeral and burial. There will be other costs as well. I hope to see it keep building.

That is wonderful that the goal was met I know everyone will support this beautiful family on their long road to justice I believe it is very important to educate men on how to confront their friends when they suspect they may be abusing their partners

I have been where you are. I lost my son and not one person helped. I know it's not alot that I donated. I wish someone helped me. I couldn't even bury my son. God bless.

There are no words to help but Ashley was a ray of sunshine who was always smiling and laughing. She was loved by many and will be missed tremendously. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. Rest in peace my dear friend.
