In honor of Ashley Wiliams:
I know that we will one day meet her in heaven, and that she is there now with a new heavenly body that can do whatever she wants it to do, she is now free from the restriction of her 15th chromosome deletion. Ashley may now run, jump, do cartwheels, sing songs, talk to loved ones who have gone before her, who have now met her at the gates of heaven, and I am sure that she still has her life-affirming, infectious giggle that all of our angels have!
Ashley’s firstgiving page, Our Alabama Angel with her picture, please think of donating to her page in honor of her and her family.
Here is a quote about Ashley, taken from her firstgiving page, it was written by her mom, Alicia:
If you are viewing this page you have somehow been introduced to our world of Ashley and Angelman Syndrome. If you have ever met our Ashley she has surely captured your heart or hair in some way (((smile))).
Here is a quote from a beautiful letter Erin, Maggie’s mom, wrote to Ashley:
You left a legacy of smiles and love; there is no finer legacy to leave.
We will smile as we think of you and your sweet, joyful smile. We will miss you terribly and our hearts will ache with pain for your family who had to give you up so soon. But we will think of you running free, leaving only a wild giggle in your wake.
A song by Celine Dion, called Fly was posted by Darren Humphries after losing his angel, Elijah, and it’s so beautiful and I thought it should be shared again, to honor Ashley, Elijah and all the other angels we have lost to this world:
Fly, fly little wing
Fly beyond imagining
The softest cloud, the whitest dove
Upon the wind of heaven’s love
Past the planets and the stars
Leave this lonely world of ours
Escape the sorrow and the pain
And fly again
Fly, fly precious one
Your endless journey has begun
Take your gentle happiness
Far too beautiful for this
Cross over to the other shore
There is peace forevermore
But hold this mem’ry bittersweet
Until we meet
Fly, fly do not fear
Don’t waste a breath,
don’t shed a tear
Your heart is pure, your soul is free
Be on your way, don’t wait for me
Above the universe you’ll climb
On beyond the hands of time
The moon will rise, the sun will set
But I won’t forget
Fly, fly little wing
Fly where only angels sing
Fly away, the time is right
Go now, find the light
Emma’s mom made a beatiful video with a song for Ashley, visit and watch: Angels in the corner; in honor of Ashley.
Please keep Ashley’s family in your prayers!
