I have been inconsolable since I got the news of Tannehill’s death this morning. Ashley was one of my first friends at Howard, she lit up any room she walked into with her boundless energy. I still hear your “Forever I love Atlanta” ringtone that was your alarm on your phone in my head. From freshmen year shenanigans in club UGL to holding court in the cafe. From late night study sessions in your dorm room to that early morning call making sure you were up and ready for our commencement ceremony on graduation day. From roaming the streets of Greenville, SC the weekend of Tiffany (Bright) Hughes’ wedding to catching up with you just 2 months ago. You will forever be in my heart and your voice and that laugh in my head. This pain of losing you is deep. The class of 2010 has had a hard week. She is the second classmate of ours who has passed away within 4 days. Pray for us because we are not ok.

Sucks to have to come with yet another sad update. I don’t even really have the words. I’ve known you since pre-k with Robin Jennings (Robin Smith) at Ben Hill. When I was Mr. Tri-Cities you were Miss Grady and we thought that we were poppin. We went to Howard together. We threw Howard’s first senior week. You were at my birthday parties. You came to my show. So much history, so much unconditional love. Will miss you much Ashley Tannehill. We lost another incredible light. Tell your homies that you love them. Today.

In less than one week, I’ve received news that HU Classmates Will Worley and Ashley Tannehill have both passed away. Both of them had amazing personalities and the ability to bring smiles and joy into every room they entered. I can only hope that this news is not true …
It is apparent that 2020 has no mercy.
I know that many of us will need to reconcile ourselves with the grief, anxiety, depression, and confusion that these times have given us. Please remember that mental wellness is important. Seek professional counseling if you need it and try not to internalize your emotions and feelings. We are going through a lot and I’m it’s ok to “not be ok”, if even for a moment. There is strength in recovery.
