In Memory of My Dad

Today is the five-year anniversary of my dad's death. Wow, five years. It seems like such a long time ago, and yet, it still feels like it happened just yesterday.

My dad, Kash, was the best dad in the world. I know most kids say that about their dads, but really, there aren't many who can beat mine. He was so smart, always begging to my calculus homework for me; extremely athletic, teaching all of us kids to water ski, wakeboard, and snow ski like the pros; and he was an incredibly spiritual man, a convert to the church and a great example to others.

I just wanted to thank everyone who has been there to let me cry on their shoulder, give me a hug, for the beautiful letters over the years, or just getting me out of the house to do something fun when I was having a bad day. I love you all, you can't understand how grateful I am for you. And dad, if you're listening, I love you too.


  1. Ash I love you so much!! The post made me cry!! I feel like I'm helping another person I love so much go through the same thing. I can't tell you how awesome I think you are! I love your dad so much!! Ha he really was the coolest smartest dad ever!! I still pray you and think about you! Thanks always being one of my best friends even if we definately don't talk as much as we should!! I love you!!

  2. Such a sweet post. I think about you all the time. Your dad would be so proud of you and everything that you have accomplished!!

  3. oh man, i remember that day like it was yesterday. I am so proud of you for being so strong!You are an AMAZING girl! And i love you!!

    P.S.Jamo & I were laughing our heads off at all your funny posts!

  4. I didn't really know your Dad very well, but I remember going boating with your family once and he really did seem like such a cool Dad. He kept doing backflips off the boat and trying to get all of us to join in! I can't imagine how hard this is for you still, but it sounds like you really have taken it as best you can.

  5. Ash,
    I think about your dad and your family all the time. I am here to tell everyone that Kash was the greatest dad. I remember coming over all the time and he would be there at your side helping you with homework or just joking with all the kids. I have always been envious of your family...your family has always been such a happy family! You dad is proud of all of you and I am sad that I don't get to see you guys very often!
    Much love,
