    Would like to offer my condolences to the Ashby family. I had the pleasure of working with Austin for several years at CMI. He was quite a character you could not help but love him he just stole your heart. I loved his stories ,he could always make me laugh. I can just see him with his dress pants, shirt, tie, and of course his hat he was quite the charmer and loved the ladies. I know that Austin has a new body now free from all pain and will no longer have to suffer. Rest in Peace sweet little Austin.

    Please allow me to offer my condolences to the, Ashby family with these comforting words: The prophetic vision of Revelation 21:1-4 points to the time of “a new heaven” and “a new earth” and gives the promise that then “death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore.” Since this promise is given, not to spirit creatures, but specifically to “mankind,” it gives assurance that a new earthly society of humankind living under the “new heaven” will experience restoration of mind and body to fullness of health and everlasting life as earthly “children of God.” This is the hope for, Mr. Ashby, as well. I am very sorry for your loss. May God’s Word comfort you and your family. Sincerely, Meryl ~ crochetmerylsway@gmail.com
