On the second day of letter writing....
We received a heartbreaking request that shared a glimpse of the pain which Ashley is going through. Her almost sister-in-law wrote to us:
“Ashley's fiance (my brother, Chris) killed himself last month. Unfortunately, Ashley and her seventeen year old daughter were the people to find him. On top of the devastation that would come with your fiance committing suicide, Ashley recently gave birth. As well as custody of Chris’ daughter being with her mother. So overnight her family of five (soon to be six) lost two members.
Ashley goes through cycles of blaming herself–and her nine year old daughter is blaming her as well, which makes it even more difficult. She is going through an incredibly difficult time in her life, questioning what she could have done to cause such heartbreak and loss. I know she is scared of the future of having to raise three children on her own. I can't imagine the pain she is going through, because losing a brother is so different than losing a lover. I'm asking you to remind her that she's loved and that even though things are dark now, they will get better.”
