In Loving Memory of
Ashleigh Nicole Bruner
January 23, 1984-October 20, 1996
Ashleigh in her favorite hat! Summer 1996
Sunflowers and smiley faces, Barbie dolls and Disney movies,
dance recitals and talent shows, singing and playing,
happiness and dreams: these are the things that are Ashleigh
Ashleigh's Last Halloween
She Wanted to Be an Angel
Remember her as living in the hearts of those she touched
for nothing loved is ever lost, and she was loved so much
I love this picture. It reminds me of how much fun we had together.
When I look at her face smiling like that, I can remember how happy she could be...And almost hear the sound of her laugh inside my head.
"Sisters...Matching dresses - Whispering under the covers - Playing in the sprinkler - Waiting for Santa - Sharing the bathroom - Borrowing each other's stuff - Arguing with each other - Defending each other - Being understood by someone who has known you for a lifetime and still loves you" - M. Kesler
Ashleigh's 11th Birthday - January 1995
Sisters mean hope, dreams, and friendship. Sisters are treasures meant to be cherished forever. But her memories are sweet sorrow, wonderful yet tantalizing reminders of the past, a past that is gone forever. Giggles, secrets told during long nights of restless sleep, tears and arguments, and then making up and laughing all over again.
"In the looking glass we see the past,
but I see a sister who's still a dear friend."

Love You From Heaven
As I sit in heaven
And watch you everyday
I try to let you know with signs
I never went away
I hear you when you're laughing
And watch you as you sleep
I even place my arms around you
To calm you as you weep
I see you wish the days away
Begging to have me home
So I try to send you signs
So you know you are not alone
Don't feel guilty that you have
Life that was denied to me
Heaven is truly beautiful
Just you wait and see
So live your life, laugh again
Enjoy yourself, be free
Then I know with every breath you take
You'll be taking one for me....
