ASHMORE Michael My gentle and kind man, the love of my life. Your unwavering love blessed and gave joy to all our family. In the good earth of that love we were nourished and grew strong and happy. Snatched away from us far too soon, your absence on your 70th birthday today is heart-breakingly sad. How we all miss you. Elaine, Emily, Joe, Rowan, Frances, Rhys, Rose, Harry, Edward and Flora.
