The mum of Ashley Dale has issued the following tribute, on behalf of Ashley’s family, to mark the first anniversary of her death.
“A huge hole has been left since Ashley was taken from us one year ago. A void in our family that will never be replaced.
“This past year has been unbearable without Ash, some days I don’t know how I go on.
“But I do with the support of family and friends. We vow to keep Ash’s memory alive and talk about Ashley every day in a positive way, remembering all the good things about her.
“I’m glad that we have a place to go and remember Ash. At her bench in Court Hey Park. I am forever grateful to Ashley’s colleagues at Knowsley Council for doing such a wonderful, thoughtful thing for Ash and us.”
Ashley’s work colleagues have also organised for the Huyton Railway bridge and Greystone Footbridge to be lit in pink, orange and green this evening, Monday 21 August, in Ashley’s memory.
