I surely miss my good friend Asa. He is now with the Angels looking over and helping the children as he did in his earthly world. He was one of the kindest and generous men I have ever known!

Asa: Our family never had the opportunity to meet you, however we felt like we had known you forever. Your Mom always spoke about you to our family. We even talked about taking a trip to Alaska and how you would show us around. I am sad we did not get that opportunity. We will keep your family in our prayers that they will soon find comfort.

Asa, from the first moment we saw you, our heart was forever captured. You moved into your own little corner where you will forever stay. Over the years we watched you grow from childhood into a handsome young man with so many good qualities and so full of life. As with everyone, you occasionally had bumps in your road; however, you traveled over them full speed ahead and continued your journey of growth into the fine and loving young man you became. We were proud and blessed to be part of your life and call you nephew. We will miss you dearly and look forward to the day we reunite in heaven for eternity. Rest in peace sweet Asa. Love Uncle Mike & Aunt Sissy
