    I was so heart broken to hear this and my prayers are always with the family. May the Lord’s comfort keep you in this time.
    Asia was a bright light that reminds me of a butterfly, it does not fly in a perfect straight line and I believe it flies the way it does so that we are always memorized by its beauty as I was by Asia. We chase the butterfly simply because we love the unbridled glory of the way it flies, and once captured, amazed by its beauty, our hearts are filled with appreciation for the Freedom it has, and we long for, we let it go.
    Asia now you can fly forever, and the beauty of who you are will forever soar with timeless memories in our hearts. Love you.
