Linda & Family, please accept our sincerest condolences for Asa’s passing.

Linda, Annette and I know how much you and Asa loved each other and we understand how much his loss means to you. I saw the sparkle in your eyes and smile on your face during your & Asa’s wedding, and the same sparkle and smile were there during our past reunion at Brian’s home. Asa also had a certain sparkle in his eyes, sometimes mischievous, and sometimes a smile on his face. And in our minds, we see him smiling down on you, and he’ll always be there beside you.

Lovingly, Gary & Annette

First time I met Asa was at a St Patty’s party at my house. He came dressed in Kelly Green from head to toe. I was totally charmed by his funny and friendly personality. He had a quick wit and kind heart. Ben and I will miss him!
