Jaelin Daivon Ashe was a remarkable young man who left us far too soon. Please join us and all of his close friends and loved ones on December 19th 2013 at
Laurel Lakes Park Concert Pavilion at 8pm for a candle light vigil in his honor.

This memorial website was created in memory of Jaelin, son of our dear friend Vann Ashe.

Vann, unarguably among the "who's who" of many social circles, is known for his charisma, fun loving nature, general love of life, and being the "go to" guy for a great time,  but those of us who know Vann best know that before anything else he's a devoted father.


Please open up your heart to the Ashe family in this very difficult time  as Vann has always opened his heart to us. 

Contributions from you will assist with Jaelin's final expenses as well as establish a  memorial in his memory. Proceeds can be accepted  here . 

Thank you in advance for your kindness-  
                   
             Friends of Vann


I’ll lend you for a little time a child of mine, He said.
For you to love the while he lives and mourn when he is dead,
It may be six or seven years, or twenty-two or three.
But will you, till I call him back, take care of him for me?
He’ll bring his charms to gladden you, but should his stay be brief,
You’ll have his lovely memories, as solace for your grief,
I cannot promise he will stay, since all from earth return,
But there are lessons taught down there I want this child to learn.
I’ve looked the wide world over in my search for teachers true,
And from the throngs that crowd life’s lanes I have selected you.
Now will you give him all your love, nor think the labor vain,
Nor hate me when I come to call to take him back again?
I fancied that I heard them say: Dear Lord, Thy will be done!
For all the joy Thy child shall bring, the risk of grief we’ll run.
We’ll shelter him with tenderness: we’ll love him while we may,
And for happiness we’ve known forever grateful stay.
But should the angels call for him much sooner than we’d planned.

We’ll brave the bitter grief that comes and try to understand.-- Edgar Guest

"Vann, Just wanted to say I am so sorry to hear about your son. I don't know both of yall personally but I respected the tight relationship you two had. A relationship that my father and I have.
