“[My grandparents] tried to use tough love – Papa took my car away too many times to count – but I didn’t care. The harder my grandparents were with me, the harder I got with them.

-Ashley Smith, Unlikely Angel

“‘Wait a minute,’ he said [after a violent rage], whispering. ‘What am I doing? You’re my wife. She’s my child.’ He sat down on the sofa. ‘I’m sorry,’ he said, putting his bruised face in his hands. ‘I’m so sorry.’ He never laid a hand on me after that. Our marriage started to get better, and Mack began to really love me – not just because I was his wife, but for who I was. He spent more time at home. It started to feel like we were a family.”
-Ashley Smith, about the turning point in her marriage, from her book Unlikely Angel

“Paige will never, ever have her father… She will never get to spend time with the man who loved her most – her daddy… He loved Paige to death… He would lie on the couch with her and let her draw all over him after a long day at work… He had a huge generous heart, and Paige will never get to know it now. She’ll never feel his love. She’ll never know her daddy’s heart…”
-Ashley Smith, about her late husband and her young daughter,
