Howard J Pye Says:

Truly sad for such a wonderful talented person to leave us so soon. Your chicken breasts at La Vista Social Club that you cooked and served were always absolute perfection! The terrible accident was on the corner of 3rd Avenue, Tana and Linden Roads in Emmarentia (where the police marked the positions of cars A + B in Linden Rd, Emmmarentia). You are sorely missed Asleigh… but your spirit lives on!

Caitlin M P Says:

To the Callie Family. YOu are all in my prayers.

Long live the spirit of Ashley…a sad day in SA indeed! As unbelievable as it is…may she rest in peace…

Dianne Says:

Our sincerest condolences to Ashley’s family. Our 17 year old son was killed 11 months ago. Also a wonderful special kind and loving person. It is so unfair and cruel and it is something you never get over or come to terms with. My heart goes out to her family. Sadly words at a time like this are meaningless. May Ashley, one of my favourite actors, rest in peace.

Connie Says:

After hearing the news 2day i am so deeply saddened. I had been praying 4 ashley 2 pull through this. What an amazingly beautiful and talented woman. I can’t believe how isidingo will ever be the same again. And as i say that i think only of how ever ashley’s parents and sister’s life will ever be the same. What a tragedy ur family has had to endure. May God be with u all and comfort u in this time. Please find some peace in the fact that ashley has touched all of our lives in some way or another and that she now watches down on us from up in heaven where we will meet with her one day.
Ash we will miss u deeply. You were such an inspiration to all of us. X

To her family, my God give you the strength you need to get through this very difficult time. Like you, we will miss her always. Rest in Peace Ashley Callie.

Meera Says:

Its so hard to deal with because she was such a fine person. Thats what makes it so heartbreaking to still watch her act; and you dont know which will be the last episode with her. Its very difficult to accept that it will end. Take care. Meera

Sonto Zubane Says:

Kudzie Says:

Our very deepest sympathy to the Callie family & fans.Ashely may your soul rest in eternal in peace, we will miss u, Isidingo will neve be the same again, no one will ever replace you. Only God knows why.

Sa'eed Says:

I don’t think I can adequately describe the sadness I feel now – upon hearing of Ashley’s passing. I haven’t watched Isidingo in years – and clearly I don’t know Ashley, other than on tv and glimpses at the restaturant, but other than her obvious beauty, there was definitely something ethereal and angelic about her. The way she carried herself, the aura around her – she was clearly a special human being – as evidenced by all the comments on this site. What an unbelievable person and life. Whatever the purpose of this existence is, Ashley no doubt added a dose of something wonderful and pure. My thoughts and prayers are with her family and friends. rgds. Sa’eed

Lebogang Says:

dumisani mantyi Says:

as an aspirant artist i absolutely looked up to her, some part of my dream is deferred. her presence, though, imparted a lot of profound lessons.

Ivan Says:

I was devastated to hear of Ashley’s death; I was so hoping, and praying that she would pull through. May she rest in peace, and may her family, friends and fans take comfort in the knowledge that she is in a better place; but also that in her life and in her acting she contributed to this beautiful country of ours. Go well, beautiful sister…

Paul Mack Says:

On hearing of the death of Ashley I felt a feeling
of profound loss,similar to that of losing a close
friend.She was the epitome of grace and can never
be replaced on screen or off.She was quite frankly
the hub of the wheel in Isidingo,the untouchable
princess in the ivory tower.Every time she came
on screen,which was not often enough,I found
myself catching my breath.She elevated grace and
etiquette to almost ephereal levels.

She will be sorely missed and without her the world will be a little bit more of a darker place.

Goodbye Ashley,and may your next life be a longer one
and your soul find it’s true potential once again.

Cedric Mboyisa Says:

When I heard about Ashley’s untimely death I felt as though I had lost a member of my own family. It is extremely sad to lose such a gifted South African. You may be gone but your incomparable memory lives on. You’ve left behind a legacy of excellence, and you’ve made me proud to be a South African. We will never forget you. We will miss you so much, but we’ll never stop celebrating your life. May God always be with you. We love you so much.

Kerry Leigh Gray Says:

When I heard about the Death of Ashley on Sabc 3 on Friday, I felt if I had also lost one of my own family members. I am a fan and will always be one, so rest in peace Ashley and may God always be with you and watch over you forever. I will miss you and without you the world will be a little darker.

To the Callie family, Isidingo cast and friends, my thoughts and prayers go out to you at this diffcult time.

Ashley, you will be missed so much.

Rest in Peace and We love you so much.

ingrid Says:

My dearest dearest Ashley..I rushed home every night so that I could watch Isidingo you were our ‘Princess’

Kim Steenhuis Says:

Tomorrow Ash would have left us for 3 months already, she is still greatly missed by me but i keep her in a very special place in my heart. This is then GOODBYE Here we are, standing at the end of this road Here we are searching for the meaning of it all Wondering how you’re looking down, Cause we feel you all around. The sad thing is, the sad thing is, you’re gone. The boatman came to take you to the other side. And you are waving goodbye, you waving goodbye. Row safely with love to the other side, To the harbour of forever. Let your sails fly high, high. The boatman came to take you to the other side, And you are waving goodbye, you waving goodbye. Row safely with love to the other side, To the harbour of forever, Let your sails fly high, high. Goodcye dear friend, goodbye

Nettie Says:

I still think of Ashley so very, very often. Today we lost another beautiful young woman, a friend, to cancer.
This verse is for Ashley and all who passed way to early from this life. R I P

They do not leave, there are not gone,
They look upon us still,
They walk along the valleys now,
They stride upon the hill.
Their smile is in the summer sky,
Their grace is in the breeze,
Their memories whisper in the grass,
Their calm – is in the trees.
Their light is in the winter snow,
Their tears are in the rain,
Their merriment runs in the brook,
Their laughter in the lane.
Their gentleness is in the flowers,
They sigh in Autumn leaves,
They do not leave.
They are not gone …..
‘Tis only we – who grieve.
