The everlasting memory that our family has of Ashley is her crush on Nick. When Nick was on the football field, Ashley had the best view of him. She always said that she was going to marry him. I can only imagine the amount of countless hours she spent spying on Nick when he would spend the night in high school. Also her laugh was contagious. She could brighten up your day by her laughter. Ashley will forever be missed.

First off I would like to express my condolences to everyone in the Seay family for your tragic loss. I had to dig down deep to remember what I could of Ashley back in my Palombi days hanging out with Mike. My favorite memory involved a trip to the Wisconsin Dells with you guys back when Mike and I were in the 7th grade. We were at an amusement park in line for a roller coaster that did not seem too intimidating. I decided to wear my brand new Cub's hat in the front row sitting with Mike while Ashley and Shannon were sitting in the very back row. After the first drop I realized the rollercoaster was much more intense than I had expected as my hat flew off my head. As I looked back I saw Ashley with at first a look of disbelief as she saw that my hat had somehow ended up in her hands. Then came a huge smile and the fist pumping began. It was a miracle, just outstanding hand eye coordination. I am sure there are many more great memories about Ashley that the Seays are proud to enjoy. I just wish you guys the best recovering from this tragedy. Life goes on and her spirit lives on. Love you guys.
