So first off I want to say I am so very sorry to everybody for not posting in such a long time. My loving wife Ashley was very secure and had everything under passcodes and it took weeks to figure out all the pass codes for everything not to mention I’m not very computer savvy LOL. So let me first say that the first memorial went great Ashley had her last rights as a Catholic and it was beautiful. I have a month of catching up on her blogging to do she would want me to do that. The second memorial is going to be at the Christ Episcopal church At 120 E. Goodhue St. Owosso Michigan at 11 AM. At the first Memorial Ashley broke my heart. She really got the last word in like always lol. She told the minister who we spoke to numerous times to tell me something personal at the memorial service. She just knew that I would probably have him speak for her sense she liked him so much and spoke to him a lot about God and other things in life. She told him to tell me that she loved me and I was her best friend in life. Also she could not have survived 18 months without me by her side. She also said that I was one the beloved boys in her life besides Tank&Toby Lol. As you all know I had Ashley cremated and it took me a long long time to find the perfect urn for my wife. I ended up getting her a beautiful beveled glass mirrored box. I had a lot of engraving done on it to make it personal. It already had a beautiful glittery angel on top of the box so I just thought it was appropriate to inscribed Detroit Tigers on the angels sleeve. Then of course I put some diamonds on it all girls have to have a little bling bling right. I have been going through so much so many emotions so many different kinds of feelings from the loss of my beloved wife. But to put Ashley’s crazy mother on top of that is even more difficult. I don’t normally put family drama on a post but my wife really got the short end of the stick when it came to a mother if you would call her mother. Ashley knew her mother would never be there for her in the end, when she really needed family the most. Ashley’s mother was not there when she passed away sadly She told me she “didn’t have the money”. If you love somebody you do whatever it takes possible to be down there for them in that time of need. My parents would have even given her a ride down there but she refused. I found out that the kind workers at Kroger where her mother works have been taking up collections for her to come down and see her. She has never use the money for that purpose and I’m not sure what she has been doing with it sadly. I found out she had a life insurance policy on Ashley that my wife knew nothing about. She tried telling me that there was $1000 life insurance policy that her grandmother taken out for her and that she would need a death certificate. I thought this was sort of fishy and she was lying to me. So when I asked her to see the policy she told me “I don’t have to tell you anything” And that she is not giving me a dime of it even though I have countless medical bills and cost of cremation funeral memorial and so on. After Ashley passed I felt very bad for her mother even though she wasn’t down there I sent my parents over to see her and maybe take her out for coffee and to talk. She didn’t want to go though she was busy looking for Ashley’s life insurance policy that she surprisingly “forgot about” she says the whole time my wife battled for 18 months. This is very said to me she only worries about cashing in on her daughters death and doesn’t care about anything else. Ashley would never want her mother to profit from her death. Ashley was not very close mainly because her mother didn’t act like one at all. Ashley would have been so angry with her mother if she had found out her she had a life insurance policy on her since she moved out of the house at age 18. Normal parents in this circumstances would have signed it over to their children at age 18 or 21 whatever that may be and let them take it over as they see fit. I am again just so saddened by this and can’t believe that someone who calls themselves a mother would do this to their deceased daughter. I told Della that I wanted to set up a foundation in Ashley’s name and that she could be the first donor to it If there was any money left after the medical expenses. She basically told me forget you I paid the premiums and I am cashing it in. Well I battled with my wife for 18 months and I will battle with her tell the end of my life if need be on the situation. Like I told everyone before it’s not about the money to me I am trying to help other people. For example the go fund me site everybody has generously donated to any money I take out of it I am going to put back in when I get back to work. It will all go to a foundation that I set up in her name and it will ultimately help cancer patients with rare cervical and pancreatic cancer. Again I am so saddened by the family drama but I don’t know any other way to try to stop this woman.
