Condolence From: John OBrien
Condolence: My deepest sympathy to the Ashe family. I had the pleasure of working with Don in the Massachusetts Registers of Deeds Association. He was a gentleman and somebody who never forgot where he came from. He was an excellent public servant and ran a great Registry. Rest In Peace my friend.

Condolence: My heart goes out to Mr. Ashe's family and all of the employees at the Registry of Deeds. He was a good man and a great boss. I am so grateful for the opportunities that he gave me. Working for him was an honor. It is comforting remembering the good times and the laughter in the office. He had a great sense of humor and had to be the best dressed person in the courthouse!!!!! My thoughts and prayers go out to his family. Every time I look at that picture of Frank Sinatra I'll think of you with a smile! Rest in peace, Mr. Ashe!

Condolence: With a heavy heart I wish the Condolences to the Ashe Family. Trying to leave words at this time and can only think to say, Donny was and always the heart and devotion his position for so many years and also devoted to the City of Springfield and the Irish Community. I can't ever remember a time he always had a warm smile and his arms open. For sure when you see him again he will be close to Heaven Gates to make sure his Family and Friends go right through the gates, he'll make sure everything will be in order.

To the Ashe Family may God hold you close during this unexpected and difficult time. Rest In Peace my Friend and the brightest light shine on you.
