From: Gail Paul
Relation: i did not get to meet him but my heart feelings for him and his family.

A beautiful young soul has has been taken from his family, too young to finish his journey here on Earth. My heart is heavy and my tears are falling, fly home and may you find peace.

From: Darlene Jones
Relation: Former teacher

There are no words….but there are heartfelt wishes and healing thoughts being sent your way. Ashton was a student of mine in his elementary years. He was a gentle, respectful young man. I was always very fond of him and have thought of him often. My deepest sympathy to his entire family. To Mary, Glen and Allan …I send you a big hug. My heart aches for you!

From: Ernestine Saulteaux
Relation: Former student

I taught Ashton when he was in grade 4 and I will not forget him. My sincere condolences to Vanessa, her children, Glen and Mary, and to all Cardinal families.
May the Creator bring comfort and strength to family.
