We were all very shocked to learn Ashley Grybowski lost her battle with cancer on March 1st. Ashley was the granddaughter of Danny, and Linda Elston, and sister of Corbin Grybowski. Ashley was only in her early 20's at the time of her passing. OTSA has set up an Ashley Grybowski Memorial fund account to help offset the tremendous expense occurred by the Grybowski family. You can send donations to the fund at P.O. Box 1462, El Reno, OK 73036. Be sure they are marked "Ashley Grybowski Memorial fund". Our sincere condolences go out to the Grybowski, and Elston families, and ask you to remember them in your prayers.
