with Gloria Holiday
Hello, family and friends! How great and wonderful it is to be with you one more time. The Lord has allowed us to see one more day with everything going on. To God be the Glory! For this is the day the Lord has made, rejoice and be glad in it.
We do not know when the Lord is going to call us home. There is one thing we do know – one day He will call us home. On April 9, he decided it was that time for our little Ashanti Nikole Harris at the tender age of 17. Last week, her father wrote how he felt about his daughter. It was called “Daddy’s Lil Angel.” There was several friends and loved ones who wanted to share their love and thoughts
Uncle Tyrone wrote, “I first learned of my niece Ashanti when her Dad asked me to meet her mom in Lexington to pick her up and let her stay with me and my wife. She was such a sweet baby.” – Love Uncle Tyrone
“To know her is to love her, save that dollar for me.” – R. Massey
“Psalms 34:18 – ‘The Lord is close to the brokenhearted and saves those who are crushed in spirit.’ When we are at our weakest GOD is at his strongest. Fly high, Ace. You are loved and will truly be missed!” – N. Ross
“That beautiful smile, how much she loves to be with her daddy and her talent she had for basketball are the memories I hold of Ashanti.” – Love, Cousin Lamont
“I remember her smile and her loving to joke around and making everyone laugh. She was the type of person who didn’t meet any strangers. If you would listen, she would talk to you all day. She was a very focused and determined girl and that would have carried her anywhere she wanted to go.” – Love, Cousin Derrick
“You always wore such a beautiful smile and a humble spirit. I’m gonna miss you on the holidays.” – Love, Uncle Steve
“Rest easy. I remember the days when we was little and used to go to grandmamas and sit outside and talk and play, and I’ll never forget those days. This don’t seem real. It breaks my heart, but I know you will forever be watching over us.” – Love, Cousin Nalie
“I remember when we were both younger, and you would come to grandma’s, and we would laugh about almost anything. That’s what I remember the most. You shine bright with your smile and are filled with so much laughter.” – Love, Cousin Charleston
“A smile we will never forget, a young girl full of silliness, jokes and laughter. She always kept joy in the air. As she began to grow up, we began to see a more forward minded and goal setting young lady. She was even too grown to play family games at our Christmas dinner, but she laughed and had more fun than anybody. You will truly be missed.” – Love, Cousin Amie
“My fond memories are when she attended my daycare; she would play all day, shooting in the little basketball goal. I could see the skills in her then. She was the first to get to the goals, shooting and rarely missing. You could see the smiles and focus when playing. We will miss seeing you on the family gathering.” – Love you much, Aunt Ethel
