THINKING OF ASHLEY
I wish this photo - taken in the Spring of 2006, at Toys R Us in NYC, when Ashley was recovering from a broken leg - did not have the copyright, watermarks, etc on it...but I still think it’s a great photo. * I just love Ashley’s sly little smile, her beauty, her attitude. I miss her so much, and keep thinking that surely there must have been something I could have done to keep this kind and wonderful soul from leaving us so soon. If she did in fact, take her own life, was there something I, or anyone else could have said to her, helped her with or done for her, to show her that no matter how hopeless things might seem today, with enough love, compassion and understanding, there is always the hope of a brighter day tomorrow...or the day after tomorrow...or the day after that.
I talked to Lisa Marie (Victoria from WWE, Tara from TNA) quite a bit today about Ashley, and she told me the WWE women of Ashley’s era are devastated by such a terrible loss, and letting each other know they are always going to be there for each other, in good times, and in bad.
I think we all need to look out for each other. Be kind to one another. Be there for each other. And if you feel like this crazy world is closing in on you and there is no way out, please know that you are not alone. If you need help, please know there is NO shame in asking for it. If you are really hurting please reach out for help at
There is always hope for a brighter tomorrow.
* I ended up purchasing five photos from the event, and will share them tomorrow. I think this is the first time I have ever purchased photos of myself in this manner, but it’s worth it. I will treasure them.
