Influencer Ashley Stock’s 3-Year-Old Daughter Laid to Rest 2 Weeks After Death

The images showed Ashley gathering around the casket with her husband, Ben, and their sons Wesley and Sawyer. “I guess it’s like that. “There have been many miracles and countless God moments that I’ll put into words when my heart has strength. If I could spare (her) life If I could trade (her) life for mine She’d be standing here right now And you would smile, and that would be enough I don't pretend to know The challenges we're facing I know there's no replacing what we've lost And you need time But I'm not afraid I know who I married Just let me stay here by your side That would be enough” Via @hamiltonmusical song: it’s quiet uptown 📷: @michellebeller A post shared by Ashley Stock (@littlemissmomma) on Jun 11, 2020 at 6:20pm PDT

In the post, Ashley wrote about her grief.”I let it out a bit at a time, like when you gently twist the lid off a liter soda bottle…releasing the built up pressure little by little to keep it from exploding all over the place,” she continued. Because if I release it all at once, I don’t see how I could possibly survive.”She also expressed how gentleness for herself and for the mourners was her “most effective approach on grief these last months.””We have complete faith in there being a greater purpose of this tragedy (and it’s already unfolding through your stories of renewed hope), but unfortunately, faith is not a ‘get out of pain free’ card, and that’s okay,” Ashley concluded. Which means my hopes to ‘rise up’ are learning to be patient with the Lord’s timing. “But my heart is tired. “You don’t need to keep asking ‘what now’…simply feel and listen, then the path will unfold in His time.”
