First things first, please accept our sincerest gratitude for the outpouring of love and support we have received from around the globe. Every note and thought just reminds us how many lives Ashley touched.
Now down to business. As mentioned yesterday, Ash does not desire what one would normally associate with a funeral or a wake. Please put aside those preconceived notions. This thing is going to have a bounce house…..yes, really.
Andy and I have debated a name for this celebration and I think I struck out both times.
2. Ash-toberfest: I thought real strong contender, but it is November. Also, I don’t think I can get these leather pants back on.
But, I digress none of that matters for what is actually important.
Please join us at the Marcum’s Home for a celebration of this wonderful woman on Saturday at 3:00pm. Please dress comfortably for the weather and the bounce house. We will have a large heated tent onsite and bonfire for the evening. Be sure to bring your favorite Ashley stories.
Instead of flowers Ashley requested that donations be made to support Breast Cancer research and support efforts. She was a believer in what the below organizations are trying to achieve.
- The Breast Cancer Reasearch Foundation: BCRF.org
- METAvivor: 30% of cancer will metastasize (spread) only 2% of funding goes to it’s research metavivor.org
- Young Survival Coalition: A useful resource for women under 40 youngsurvival.org
To assist in our efforts to forecast food and drink requirements please RSVP in the facebook comment section for this post.
Address: 5895 Rush Branch Road Somerset, KY 42501
I recommend using Google Maps to navigate to their home. Many commercial GPS’ will not guide you to the correct location.
Parking will be marked and you will turn right just prior to their house. Just look for the bounce house.We look forward to seeing as many of you that can make it down to Somerset. This celebration is as much about Ashley as it is for thanking you for being a huge part of her story.
Before we depart I have thrown on a two of my favorite moments frozen in time.
Goodbye for now, and we will see you all Saturday.
