October 18th, 2014 is a day that will forever be etched into my heart. My sister was 21 when her life came to a sudden end. She was killed in a car accident. Ashleigh was such a bright light. When she smiled, she lit up the whole room. I was so proud to call her my big sister. She loved blasting the radio in the car and singing her lungs out (even though she couldn’t sing to save her life). Some of my favorite memories I have of her are of us driving around with the sunroof down without a single care in the world. She had this thing about her that made you forget about anything that was bothering you.
Ash was in her third year of college studying to be a pharmacist. She loved learning; I thought she was insane for liking math. Every day, I think about her and how much I miss her but I am so truly blessed to have been able to spend 15 years with her. Although I wish she was still here with me, I wouldn’t trade those 15 years for anything. I know she will always be by my side singing with me in the car and making my bad days brighter. I love you Ashleigh Danielle Bond.
