Gone too soon Sir. What great contributions you made to our community and particularly to our veterans. The work will continue in your name. Semper fi.
Deepest condolences to the family. I'll always remember how Judge Ashford made my rejection as a juror in a murder case, was not the end of the world. So dignified and gracious, thank you Your Honor. May your heavenly chamber be filled with praise and smiles.
I am so sorry for your family’s loss. It is my hope that Jehovah will remember W. Mark Ashford and in the near future allow him to enjoy a new life on earth; where there will be no more pain, sorrow, and suffering.
