    I was Ashley’s speech teacher when she was an elementary student in Buffalo. During language group activities, I remember talking with Ashley about exercising, because I like to run. She told me about her CF walks, and I remember sponsoring her for a “walk” at the IDS tower several years. Ashley was a sweet youngster to work with, and I have many fond memories of our time together. I am very sad for your loss and will keep your family in my thoughts and prayers. Sincerely, Pam Brophy

    I was Ashley’s teacher for her junior and senior years at Buffalo High School. Ashley was always a hard worker and a sweet, thoughtful person. After Ashley graduated she kept in contact with me and I went to visit her in the hospital several times. Ashley, you will be forever missed and remembered.

    Ashley was a teacher’s aid in my classroom two years ago. She had a gift with my students… I particularly remember her working with one of my students who wouldn’t talk to most people. The first day I had Ashley working with him he was talking with her. I know she touched many lives with her kind and loving nature and she will be truly missed.

  10. Ashley Berkholz

    I knew Ashley all through school in Buffalo although our friendship never really blossomed until high school. I was glad to have Ashley as a friend she had such a loving heart and she will be greatly missed. I love ya Ashley and will love ya forever! I am in constant prayer for the family as I know it is hard but always remember you will see her again one day in heaven and there will be an eternity together.
