Dear Dawn, Brother Ashdown and Family; I am sorry for your loss. Sister Ashdown always expressed first love for her family, her faith that the savior would care for her family, and that she had great faith in the Lord, Jesus Christ. She had known sorrow but continued in faith. I am grateful for her testimony and influence. With Love, PauLa Halley.
