    God bless Tommie and the rest of his family. I can’t even imagine the pain and heartache he and his family must be going through. All the best to their family.

    So, so sad. Thoughts and prayers go out to their family and friends.

    Terrible news, especially with the recent birth of their twins. Many thoughts and prayers go out to their family.

    damn tommie.

  9. cactusranger71 says: Feb 13, 2012 8:01 AM

    So sad. My best to TH and those kids.

    Side note: can we refrain from prefacing condolences with which team we root for? You know, the guys that say “Raider fan here…” as if there is a need to say it. How about as a member of the human team …

    As a husband and father of two young ones myself, I have no idea how I would deal with this. Sincerest condolences to Tommie’s family from this die-hard Packers fan. Prayers to you and yours.

  20. randygnyc says: Feb 13, 2012 8:38 AM

    Uuuugh. WTF. It’s this type of tragedy that deserves our sympathies.

  21. 49erstim says: Feb 13, 2012 8:43 AM

    What horrible news. Sincerest condolences and heartfelt prayers to the Harris family.

  22. godofwine330 says: Feb 13, 2012 8:44 AM

    Far too young. Life is fragile, folks. It is. So sad to hear, especially with young children. This will undoubtedly fall under the radar when a much more publicized alcohol and drug abuser dies with much more fanfare, but this sweet woman with young children dies is a much more tragic thing. I will pray for Tommy and their children. They need some serious help right now.

  23. gmen1987 says: Feb 13, 2012 8:46 AM

    Prayers to Tommy Harris and his family. Such a tough thing to go through at such a young age.

  24. mialto says: Feb 13, 2012 9:00 AM

    Horrible this could happen to such a young person, she had her entire life ahead. We went through this a couple years ago, the sadness never goes away.

    Our prayers are with Ashley and her family.

  25. hoochbcs says: Feb 13, 2012 9:06 AM

    How mentally deformed do you have to be to thumbs down all these comments? Whoever you are, get help. You need it.

    Prayers and thoughts with Harris today.

    First, I’ like to offer my condolences to Tommie Harris and family. Second, what is wrong with people? Giving thumbs down to someone giving their sympathies to the loss of a man’s 29-year-old wife!

    This is so unspeakably tragic. All of a sudden, the petty things that annoyed us this morning just don’t seem that important, do they?

    so young and such a tradgity goodluck harris thoughts and prayers go to your family in such a tough time

  48. lacombe44 says: Feb 13, 2012 3:02 PM

    Thank you all so kindly for your prayers and thoughts! Ashley was a very beautiful person inside and out! It’s a shock to our entire family! Ashley was my 1st cousin (our moms are sister)! As for those who are leaving the thumbs down are what team you like more. It’s sad! You have no respect for her family and friends. I suggest to you that if you dont have something nice to say don’t say anything at all. You fail to realized that we have lost someone so young. That her kids ages 4 yrs and 5 months lost their mom. That Tommie lost his wife. Have a heart please! Know that our family is human just like you!

  49. beardownngrunt says: Feb 13, 2012 3:24 PM

    Maybe PFT should think about disabling coments on stories such as this, most are respectful, but the families do not need the dirspect and thumbs down at a time like this.

  50. domeinate says: Feb 13, 2012 8:53 PM

    Rest in peace!! Prayers for the family

    What kind of people give a ‘thumbs down’ to comments like “Rest in peace!! Prayers for the family”? God forbid something aweful happen to someone YOU love! This is incredibly sad. I couldn’t imagine what he is going through. I hope you bastards giving thumbs down pull your heads out before it is too late.
    Condolences Harris Family.
