Ashley Morris..I remember reading this post “back Home with a Vengance”:http://ashleymorris.typepad.com/ashley_morris_the_blog/2005/12/back_home_with_.html

I have thought a lot about the idea of after anger comes hopelessness and how much hopelessness is being offered then and now. So Ashley “managed”:http://humidhaney.typepad.com/the_humid_haney_rant/2008/04/a-video-of-ashl.html to fan the fire that we all hold within us. “Greg”:http://www.suspect-device.com/blog/?p=2081 thought it was gone, but it is ‘not’:http://toulousestreet.wordpress.com/2008/04/04/never-let-the-fire-go-out/ .

We owe him a debt of gratitude for helping us to map properties which the City was intent on tearing down. He wasn’t just angry he was focused too. He mentions our work in this “video”:http://righthandthief.blogspot.com/2008/04/blight-field-talk-with-ashley.html but never mentions helping us. That is a gentleman. “Sinn Fein”:http://peoplegetready.jockamofeenanay.com/?p=1980

He leaves behind his wife and 3 young children. There will be expenses which will strain the family resources.
