Rezaa Says:

When the story broke here in the newsroom today, there a stunned silence and pall of sadness fell upon the office on hearing the news…

It took the
We were celebrating a colleague’s birthday, but all sense of joy and revelry dissapated because the guys and girls in our office, were really her biggest fans …

Very often we joked, Lee Haines was going to get people fired cos the guys in the office (myself included)were so smitten with her charm, poise and bloody good acting, things practically went on a go-slow when Isidingo was on – and more particularly so when Lee owned the screen…

We offer our deepest empathy, fervent prayers and wish all her family, loved ones’ and fans strength and peace in this sad, dark time.

We were so thankful, lucky really to have ever had a wonderful artist such as Callie on our screens and while we miss her terribly, we hope she is at peace.

Know this, life is beautiful, rich and precious…

All our Love

sam Says:

Why bad things always seem to happen to good people we will never know. I tried to stop asking ‘Why?’ a long time ago but its stories like this that make me so sad. I didn’t know Ashley and I don’t know her family, but I wish them all the best at this difficult time. Take each day as it comes, and remember to keep hope alive even when it feels as though there may be none at all. Ashley will live on in your hearts and I’m sure will never be forgotten. Her soul is in peace now, she’s in a place where there is no pain or suffering. I’m just sorry my life couldn’t have been taken instead.

Mark Ngwenyama Says:

May I express my felling in my language.Uma ngicala kubukela iSidingo kwaba nabunye buso lobangitsatsa,beku buso ba Lee njengobe bekabitwa kulomdlalo.Mine ngingumunftu lobekangakaze alandzele futsi asapote imidlalo yamabonakudze yalapha ekhaya ikakhulu uma kunebuso lomumhlophe,kodvwa mzukwana ngicala kubukela iSidingo ngabambeka umlibe kuze kube kuyitolo mhlaka 10 February 2008.

Ashely kimi bekangumunftu lotjengise likhono lakhe ngalokukhulu kukhululeka ungete wambona kutsi uyadla.Bekuba ungatsi nguyise nendvodzakati uma bakanye na Baker.Ngicela kusho nayi inkhondlo lefika nyalo njengoba ngibhala.
Insika(Anchor)

Kutsi lapho umakhi ahlanganisa tonkhe tinfto tekwakha,
kuba yinsika lacala ngayo.
Kutsi nobe atibeka atendlala phasi,kuba insika leba sedvute netinyawo takhe uma emile;kutsi nobe atimisa kubayinsika lacala ngayo kuyimisa;kutsi nobe abala tintfo takhe tekwakha ucala ngensika.kungani?

Insika ifana nemongo(marrow),sakhiwo sisakhiwo ngensika,lutsandvo lumela bumatima ngobe lunensika,umuti ubangumuti ngobe usuke unensika;umunftu uba ngumunftu ngobe anensika.

Ubile yinsika kutemidlalo yesashashalazini nakumabona kudze.Ubile yinsika yeligcabho lesive sase ningizimu afrika ngetemidlalo yamabonakudze,
ubile yinsika yelitsemba kulaba safufusa,
ubile yinsika kuboma kadze aboma,
ubile yinsika etihlobeni nebangani,
ubile yinsika yetfu lebe ungasati,
ubile yinsika yelutsandvo kutemidlalo yelapha ekhaya yabo mabona kudze,

Lamuhla leyo nsika lengu Ashley iwile,
namuhla luphahla lwendlu yetemidlalo yabo mabona kudze kanye neyelishashalazi,iyatamatama.

Tingondvo tesakhiwo tiwela phansi,
Kuvala umsindvo wekudzabuka nekwehluka kwelupha,
Luphahla nguletihlwele tebalandzeli,

Iwile insika,kuyasala tindzala,
Tindzala letiyakuba yinkhumbulo,
Kutsi kuletindzala kuhlume imbuya,
Imbuya leyiyakuba ngulabasha labatawu tsatsa lapho ushiye khona.

Iwile insika.

Kubaka Callie tsine baka Ngwenyama sitsi ncesini,sitsi dvudvu.Siyati kutsi kutsiwa sikhatsi siyaphotisa;kodvwa tsine sitsi nguMdali kuphela lotawuphotisa.

 
Naomi Says:

Mark, I don’t know what your message means but it makes me want to cry that Ashley touched so many people, and that you took the time to express yourself in this way, in your own language, in a special message to her. Dear Ashley, I hope you are feeling all this love coming through from all of us.

 
Karina Says:

Ashley, I had the pleasure of meeting you at two occasions, what wonderful person you were, thank you for being an inspiration to thousands of us.

Gaynor Says:

Ashley, although I never met you, I just loved your character in Isidingo so much and somehow your kindness, love and caring shone through – even though you said you were not like Lee. Rest in Peace – God needed you that’s why he took you. To the Callie family, I’ve asked the Angels to surround you with love and to give you strength now, and beyond. You may grieve for your darling daughter, sister and friend but know that she’s in a very special place! God Bless you all – and may he give you an abundance of strength – you can be so very, very proud of your lovely daughter! xx

 
Russ Says:

Godspeed our wonderful Ash. You are leaving behind many heartsore friends. However, we know that you have a higher calling angel. We will miss your awesome culinary skills and great sense of humour.

Luv ya angel

Lungile Says:

Its so strange, i sit here and read the postings over and over again. I am in mourning, although I’ve never met Ashley – she made a remarkable impression in my life…the boardroom diva i want to be!!! Its so sad to hear that she is no more. TO ASHLEY FAMILY: Take comfort in knowing that she’s in a much better place now, at 32 she’s touched so many lives and we are all proud of her.

Carpe diem, life is indeed far too short…make the best of each second.

RIP my boardroom DIVA!!!

 
Nathalie Boltt Says:

For dear Ashley. My goodness. I did not see this coming.I was sending you love and recovery from across the ocean and got the news that you didn’t make it. I will always remember your infectious laugh echoing through the corridors of the SABC. You were a gorgeous actress. Intelligent, glamorous, true. The same as a person. Big love to your family and friends who will miss you like crazy. Well done for being so good for SA. Respect for everything you achieved. Go well.

It was trully a pleasure. Jah bless.

Loyiso Phantshwa Says:

I regard Isidingo as the best soapie in the country mainly because of the talent of the actors & actress. I am saddened to hear about Lee’s passing. She was simply the best. Death is cruel, greedy 7 have no mercy. No ever will be like her, and like many stars of Mzantsi the likes of Brenda & lucky Dube she will be for ever missed by South Africans. She made me proud to be south African, her talent was glittering. May the family, fans and friends be calm and understanding during this sad moment. Let’s once again release our best to the maker.

 
Laura Says:

My deepest sympathies go out to the Callie family and anyone that knew this brilliant actress. Rest in peace Ashley. Noone will forget your amazing talent, especially your fans like me.

 
Tanya Says:

Katz Says:

I try to speak, but no words come out.
An angel we have lost, there is no doubt.

She entered this world with soul and passion,
And gave us all her love and compassion.
Her beauty so extraordinary, her smile so warm.
Her kindness, her strength, that could put out a storm.

Our minds are weak, our hearts shattered.
The roses in the garden, are all scattered.
For you have touched the life of every living thing
Forever our hearts will have a sad song to sing.

A friend, a sister, a child thats taken away.
In our hearts, you will always stay.
An angel you were born and an angel you are.
God just wanted the best angel by far.

We love you Ashley and we always will.
That special space in our hearts, you will always fill.
No matter how hard it is, we will have to pull through.
Right now, its the least we can do for you.

These tears won’t stop running down my face.
It comes down in buckets and all over the place.
My heart aches, oh its so sore.
I have never felt this way, never before.

Goodbye our sweet angel now spread those wings and fly.
May you rest in peace forever in the beautiful sky.

Blessed Be
Katz

Alta Says:

Dear Ashley

It took me forever to leave this message on this website, as I still cannot believe that you are not with us anymore. But, after reading all of these messages I thought that it is time to do my part:

I have met you in person a couple of times, to be exact, 4 times, and every time we talked as if we knew each other for years on end. You were such a lovely vibrant person, always ready for a laugh, always sharing your warmth, it seems that nothing could ever spoil your view. I felt I have known you all my life. That is the affect you had on people.

Your accident was a great shock, I prayed for your speedy recovery, but it did not happen, and Friday night I heard the tragic news that shook my world. God has taken you to His home, there where you are safe and you will not feel the hurt anymore. I am not mad at Him for taking you away as His garden needs a new flower to make it even more beautiful than it already is, and He picked you because you are special. You are where you belong, in his Garden, a beautiful Angel looking down at the world greeting us with her warm happy smile.

To Ashley’s family and friends – Fear not and take solace in the fact that one day you will all be together again. God decided to take her a bit earlier as she is too beautiful for this earth, He needed her for His garden, where she will grow for ever in peace waiting on your arrival.

May God give you the strength and comfort to get through this difficult time, until you meet again.

Love
Alta

Keith Walker Says:

My heartfelt condolences go out to the Callie family and freinds at this time.

We as South Africans have had the opportunity to witness Ashley live out one of her greatest passions, to act. And it is through her acting that she as an individual has touched so many of our lives in many different ways. And yet as we have wached her on Isidingo, and although we may not have realised it until now, she has taught us so many things. She has taught us that with a little will power and a lot of determination, we can achieve what we want in our own lives. She has taught woman that they can be a great and successful businesswoman if they want to.

Most importantley she enjoyed life, and she taught us to enjoy our lifes.

We are lucky to have been able to watch her grow into the remarkable actress that she was. That is something that we all should never forget. For ultimatley South African film and televising have lost a truely remarkable person, but the night sky has gained a new star.

It was her time to leave this world and we don’t know why. And although we mourn the loss of a truely magnificent woman, we celebrate her life by remembering her and all that she accomplished and stood for. for Ashley has started the next great adventure.

We will all miss you dearly.

May she watch over all of whom she loved.

Rest In Peace.

Heartfelt love…The Regular ISIDINGO Extras xxxxxxx

Dear Ashley. I never met you or has never been an avid fan of iSidingo. But when i heard you died, it felt like it was someone from my own family. The pain your family and friends is going through now, it feels like i’m also feeling it. I guess you were a person of many talents, but the one talent that will always touch me the most, is the one here where your death unites a lot of South Africans like on this site. Hamba Kahle meisie, South Africa will miss you a lot.

 
Bianca - Anne P Moll Says:

Today I watch the omnibus again – I watch Isidingo everyday and Sundays the omnibus. My heart stood still when I saw Lee (Ashley) since I can’t believe soon she is going to be gone and we will be left with this huge emptyness. It just feels so impossible to believe she is gone now. My heart ach. My being ache.

I am still in disbelieve. I don’t know why she was taken the way she was – she was such a great actress, she had the ability to touch my heart with her acting as Lee Haines. Now their is only this sadness.

My heart just ache. I don’t know how I am going to look Isidingo without her. It feels that the show has ended as well. Without her what will be left of Isidingo? Without her what will Barker do.

My thoughts with her family and friends. My prayers also that God’s grace makes the days without her bearable.

My heart aches!!!!!

 
Michael and Riva Says:

Dear Ashley,

You will always be my role model.My sincerest prayers to your family and the cast especially Jack Davnarain (Ragesh Kumar) who i believe is taking this very hard.

Rest in piece ANGEL!!!!!

 
Michael Says:

Ashley,

Though I have never met you being half a world away, it pains me to see such a young actress taken from the world. In your home country you were a role model. Here in the United States, you were an unknown. But from my reading, you had a profound effect on your fellow South Africans everywhere. My thoughts and prayers are with your family. Rest in Peace.

 
Michelle Says:

No one can ever discribe to pain that one goes thru when loosing a loved one – Ashley your loss has chipped off a piece of everyones heart – a piece that will never be replaced – May God place his hand on that missing piece to keep us strong..
You will be missed Rest in peace Lovely lady.

 
Rhozel Says:

Ashley we will miss you. Watching Isindingo will never be the same without you. I am very previledged to have met you personally, you fantastic. What a shinning STAR. Rest in Peace.

 
Jo Says:

My thoughts and prayers go out to the Callie family. Ashley may you rest in peace

Everyfan of south african television must be mourning right now.Ashley was an extraordinary actress.Isidingo will never be the same and i hope the media will respect her family and not demolish her name.accidents are robbing us.May her soul rest in peace.we will definitely miss her

 
Mpho Says:

my sincerest condolences to Callie Family and Friends at this difficult time.
Ashley was a truly remarkable actress and will be sorely missed

Rest in peace Ash

 
rendani Says:

Words fail me Miss Callie. For someone to bring a character to life to such an extent that we all felt as though we knew her, is pure talent. I am not alone in feeling like I knew you, hence the pain that we all feel.
Condolonces to family, friends, fans, and colleagues.
R.I.P

 
Livia Says:

Ashley, you were taken in the prime of your life and acting career. For now Isidingo will be so hard to watch, without getting a big lump in my throat. Then we will have lovely memories of such a great talent and remember you with fondness. To the Callie family, we lift you up with our prayers as you mourn and celebrate your daughter, sister, niece, cousin and friend outstanding life.

 
Nomonde Says:

Its quite difficult and very very sad to realise how life can come to an end at such a young age. Isidingo will never be the same without Lee and may she forever rest in peace and please dear God look after her and her family at this sad time. Guess where ever she is she is shining as she was here on earth. Maybe the angels are rejoicing as she is part of them now. Rest in Peace.

 
Pearl Says:

I have no words to say, i actually cried when i heard about Ashley’s passing away, may her soul rest in peace, she will always be loved and missed.
God bless you for all that you have achieved in your life time.

 
Kelebogile Says:

I cannot believe what happend Ashley, why do you have to go away? I am deeply hurt but I am thankful to GOD for letting you touch our lives like you have. Every time I think of this tragic happening, tears start filling up my eyes. I am glad I met you last year, I have your picture that you autographed and a t-shirt you also autographed and I will treasure them forever.

Much love my sister.

Rest in peace.

 
Nceba Mbopha Says:

Fellow South Africans

It was with a heavy heart and much sadness to hear about this tragedy. As I have mentioned before, personally I held Ashley in extremely high esteem, same league as another great SA actress, Pamela Nomvete.

This is a huge loss to me personally, not only as a die-hard Isidingo fan, but as an admirer of exceptional talent that emerged from within our borders.

Ntombazana, you played your part, and now God almighty has called you back home where we will all go one day.

May He bless your lovely soul and grant it eternal peace!

Your fan,
Nceba Mbopha

Cindy Says:

my family & i love Ashley Calie, fromt her first moments on Isindingo wo all fell in love with her – she was simple beautiful.
may her soul rest in peace and may her spirit fly free.

Samantha Says:

Dear Ashley (A star has fallen)

Its really sad to know we wont see or hear you anymore..
But God must’ve needed you much up there.You will always be remembered by your fans.

Goodbye Ash

Your fan

Kathryn Says:

Wow what a shock! I can’t imagine Isidingo without you. My deepest condolences to your family and friends. Looking at all of these tributes to you says it all. What a magnificent woman. You will be missed.
Bright Blessings

Dalene Says:

Dear Ashley

How sad, what a beautiful young woman you are! Your parents must be so proud. Never knew you personally but by everything I have heard and read about you, sounds like you are not just beautiful on the outside but also inside – you are indeed an angel. My sincere condolences to your family and friends. Rest in peace

 
CARIE Says:

GOD PICKS THE BEST- AND HE PICKED YOU- REST IN PEACE. WE ARE REST ASSURED THAT YOU’RE YOU IN THE SAFE ARMS OF GOD. LOVE AND MISS YOU ASHLEY

 
Vera-Lynn Says:

My deepest sympathy to the Callie Family! Well there is not much to say after reading all these lovely messages… just that Ashley will be missed terribly.. I have to agree with another message I read that I have not felt so sad or effected since the death of Lady Diana…. Ashley is the Princess of South Africa. I am not sure if anyone important would read this, meaning the Isidingo producers, but I would like to express that, I would feel that they should let Ashley’s memory live on and write her out of the show.. I just feel it would be wrong to try to replace her… PLEASE DONT REPLACE HER CHARACTER WITH SOMEONE ELSE!! There is no one that could match her standard of acting… and once again I feel it would be wrong.. this is not the USA.. I hope there are others out there who feel the same… Well Ashley rest peacefully, you will always be remembered…as our Princess!

 
Wezile Says:

I’m sooooo deeply saddened by your passing. You were my best actress, I can still remember how I loved the way you called Barker “Daddy” , you were such a beautiful and gentle soul. Its a pity that your soul has decided to move on whilst we are still loving a hoping for you. I pray that God will be with all your loved ones at this time of sadness. And I hope you find peace and greater learning in your next life. From someone you never met , but whom you inspired greatly. I will ALWAYS miss you.
Luvies:-)

Innocentia Says:

My deepest most sincere condolences to the Callie family, it’s just so unbelieveable that Ash is no more. may you find comfort in the Lord, we will all miss Ashley.

 
Tsholo Matlhaga Says:

May her soul rest in peace,seeing her on our tv sets made us feel that we know her and she is part of us. You were indeed and ANGEL.I say until we meet again rest with this verse:
2 Corinthians 1:9-10 We felt we were doomed to die and saw how powerless we were to help ourselves; but that was good, for then we put everything into the hands of God, who alone could save us, for He can even raise the dead. And He did help us and saved us from a terrible death; yes, and we expect Him to do it again and again.
You may feel that things are beyond your control. It may even feel like you are dying. You may feel powerless and helpless. These are not bad emotions. They are good in that they make us realize just how much we need God. The joy of this scripture is that ‘He did help us and saved us.’ That is what God wants to do. And we can expect Him to do just that again and again. This can happen as we come to Him again and again. Your the blessed one

 
Phindile Says:

May your soul rest in peace, Isidingo will not be the same again love you

 
Hylie Says:

To the Callie family

I pray that Jesus will comfort and draw you close to Him. He loves you all, just like He loved Ashley – He had and still has a purpose for her life. I pray that she knew Him personally as her saviour, and that many more people will be drawn to Jesus through this…

 
Thotho Says:

Dear Ashley

Knowing you on our TV screens every weekday was like you were a part of our lives. A whole nation is crying for this great loss. I wish you could see how much you were loved and so much appreciated. It is with a very heavy heart, great sadness, great pain and I wonder what will take this great pain from your family, such a fine, great lady taken at the time when she is so blooming. You really were a star and please wherever you are keep on shining and may The Good Lord rest your soul and keep you safe with Him.

To your family, we are sharing this great pain and you are in our prayers all the time. May your beautiful girl rest in peace and please find comfort in that wherever she is she is with her Creator. We will watch Isidingo and it will not be easy for us as a nation to watch her knowing she is no more and that there will be a time where she will not be there for ever.

God Rest her soul.

 
Keilah Says:

I still cannot get over the first lot of news, never mind that you have passed on. You were a part of our family! As Gareth Cliff was saying this morning, soap starts become a part of your life because you watch them everyday. You will be sorely missed. You are one of my favourite from Isidingo, everytime I think of you I hear that voice saying “Oh Daddy” when you speak to Barker! My your soul rest in peace. Sending lots of love and light with my angels on to you.
Keilah.

 
DORRIS MOHUTSIAO Says:

I AM SO DEVASTATED ABOUT CALLIE S DEATH, I LOVE HER, WITH ALL MY HEART, SHE WAS LIKE A ROLE MODEL TO ME,I WILL MISS HER PART WITH SABESH, THEIR LOVE TRIANGLE TEACH US THAT LOVE HAS NO COLOUR & RACE,DADDY HAINES POPPY GO WELL IT WAS THE END OF YOUR YEARS THAT GOD HAS GIVEN YOU IN THIS WORLD, YOU WILL ALWAYS BE IN MY HEART,

 
Andy Says:

Last Saturday 08th February, I went numb with cold when Jason Greer announced that Ashley has been involved in an accident.

I am absolutely honoured to say that on several occasions over the last 3 years I had met Ashley, at various functions, or bumped into her. After meeting her for the first time, she remembered me by name, and I just thought that was so special.

She was honestly, just the most beautiful person, with a heart that was so pure, and embraced all, whilst glowing with love. She was the epitimy of true beauty (inwards and outwards).

When I heard that she has passed, I felt literally sick. A gift to us all had been taken away, and it just isn’t fair.

Ashley, you are an exceptional beauty. Thank you for touching my life in the way that you did. I’ll miss you!

 
Moses Khoza Says:

We have lost one of the country’s beacons indeed.

Her spirit will live on forever in our hearts.

 
Karen Smith Says:

I was closer to Ashley, than most. Not my mother, nor my father, neither my sister entered and was welcomed into my home evryday as you were. I am true to myself in saying you are an inspiration. Thru the months, watching you (writing my own script with you and Mike O’Reilly back together). Who would ever have thought,Oh! I feel like I’ve lost a sister, evrytime I hear or see something about you, my tears well up.

God Bless Lauren
I will hold your hand thru all of this
God will carry you thru!

Ashley
You will never be forgotten!!

 
Emilie Says:

To the Callie Family
i do very much agree with all the above writers,ISIDINGO will never be the same without our Princess Lee Haines,is not only South Africa that have lost a very talent actress but Africa as a whole,Ashley my your soul rest in Eternal Peace.
my heartfelt condolences to the Callie family , Friends and to the cast of isidingo, my the Angels look after you as we celebrate Ashley’s Life.

Emilie, Namibia

 
Andiswa Says:

REST IN PEACE ASHLEY!! WE WILL SURELY MISS YOU!! YOU WERE DEEPLY LOVED BY ALL..WISH I HAD MET YOU!!

 
Tammy Says:

I remember watching Ashley in the “Homeland” series on sabc 3 years ago…even then it was clear that this was someone really special…..

We are really going to miss you….”Miss Lee”
“Orlando, you can drop the Miss….”
“Yes, Miss Lee” – one of our favourite lines from Isidingo…*sigh* never to be heard again :(

But your memory will live forever….Thanks for the last 5 years on Isidingo, it was a pleasure and a honour to have you on our screens every night….
Rest in Peace Ash
xXx

 
Chiroz Says:

I didn’t know you but feel like I lost the friend I came home to at 6.30 on weekdays! Isidingo will never be the same without you. RIP you were much loved

 
Sharlene Says:

seena Says:

Thats 4 sure, Isidingo will never be the same without Ashley, nor can anyone replace her, she played her role with passion.
you will be dearly missed Ashley, you’ve also touched the hearts of many people.

 
Marilize Says:

I am sooooo sad, my haert are broken, i just want to cry and cry!!! I will always remember you Ash!!!! Go rest now.Fly, fly little wing, fly beyond imagining, the coast is clear the sun has set and i wont forget.The war is over, your life has just begun.Love u to bits

 
Sandy-Lee Hendricks Says:

To the Callie family… My sincere condolences for your great lost. Even though I have never met Ashley, it feels that I have lost one of my family members too as Ashley has visited our homes almost every night for the past 5 years. I cannot begin to imagine how difficult her passing must be for you.

My thoughts & prayers are with you – at the memorial service, when you turn on the television & see that beautiful smile, hear her laugh & see the passion in her eyes, when you walk into her bedroom or smell her perfume & eventually pack her belongings…

May God be with you all!

 
elishia Says:

My prayers and thoughts are with the family of Ashley Callie in this sad time, such a young vibrant person was taken away from us but the Lord only knows why. The Lord also needs good people and he chose you Ashley to be his angel may your soul rest in peace.

 
Chantal Says:

My deepest sympathy and prayers will be with the family. She is truly remarkable person, and will be deeply missed.

take care ashley, may your soul rest in peace.

 
Sydney Chidambaram Says:

Rest in Peace Ashley. Heaven was missing an angel, and they chose you.

 
Lauren Says:

To the family and friends of Ashley,

Ashley has come into all of our lives, being an actress and has touched all her fans. In our homes almost everyday – we all loved her! She seemed to be really growing in popularity and almost shone everytime she was on television! What a beautiful person on tv and I am certain in real life.

We grieve with you and hope to God she shines wherever she goes.

Ashley, you are missed so terribly…

 
A Mother Says:

Being a mother and having just lost my son my heart goes out to Ashley’s family.

I now light a candle everyday for two candles and mourn her loss too!

Rest in Peace Ashley my dear.

From a heartbroken mom

 
Deon Says:

last night I read the news. . .
I am not in front of the TV a lot, prolly shows. I recently had to answer an interesting question; if someone made a film of my own life who would the actors be. I said Ashley should play the role of my wife in that film, not because the role she now plays on TV, but because of the real good, beaut person she is in real life. I saw interviews of her, saw how she came about outside TV, simply stunning.

This is sad news indeed.

 
Liezel Pieters Says:

Ashley, i never met you, but i would have loved to share a day in my life with you, I’ve heard so many good things about you how a beautiful person you are, everything everyone already knows about you, through Nathen Ross (who played Timm in isidingo)and his girlfriend(who is my best friend)! All i can say is RIP and All the best for the Callie Family
PS.(my Father also had a mager accident he drove in to a mountin in march last year and also had Head injuries, His whole face was broken but not as bad as Ashley’s injuries, He survived but now he cant see properly, so i can relate to the pain you going through..) All the bast for you all!!!) Liezel

 
Thotho Says:

Rest In peace Our prayers are with the Callie family at this terrible time.

Ashley has been a part of our lives every weekday and we made her a part of us. Now she hurt us so so much and I am just wondering if us as just pple that watched you on our screenS feel this great pain then whats happening to her family. To your family please find comfort in knowing that we are praying for you. Find strength in that God will keep your angel safe as everyone is asking for that.

To My Good Lord Please let this angel shine forever in heaven as she shone here on earth and please bless her soul and may she forever rest in peace.

AM VERY SAD I WISH I NEVER KNEW HER

 
Gail Ferndale Says:

Ashley will be soarly missed, from her fans in a coloured township of Eldorado Park, she was fit to replace Princess Diana, we called her Lady Di, her beauty and charisma took our breath away, Ashley may you dance with the Angels in Heaven and gauranteed you are the most beatiful one, our love & prayers go out to the Callie family, losing a princess is hard to accept.

 
LYNETTE GRIESSEL Says:

Ashley, I didn’t know you in person, but you were South Africa’s Lady Di!
You were so beautiful and talented.
Isidingo will not be the same
Rest in peace

 
Eon Engelbrecht Says:

Dear Callie Family , fans and friends

As I write this message, words fail me. I’m always positive and I was positive. I believed that Ashley would recover. But on Friday night ,I was completely shattered with the death of Ashley. I couldn’t believe it. I cried a lot. To the Callie family, Isidingo family and all her friends- I’m thinking of you in this very sad time. Ashlee, rest in peace. South-Africa lost one of our best actresses ever. We will miss you Ashlee. Pity I never ever got the chance to meet you… Rest in peace… Eon

 
Iva Says:

Dear Ashley

I’ve read and re-read these comments and yet it still seems so unreal!I’m in a state SHOCK and hoping to wake up from a bad dream. How can someone so beautifull, bubbly and full of life just disapear from our lives? I Cannot imagine my life without seing you daily on my TV screen and I’m dreading the day the script writers will write you off the story line… I’m sorry I cannot continue as I’m getting very emotional. RIP Ashley- With Love

 
B. Says:

Words cannot start to explain the loss that south africa suffered and the pain that we all feel! Lord know’s I’ve shed more than a tear but It’s that smile of yours that puts a smile on my face…

 
Gerda Says:

Dear Callie Family and Friends
I’ll keep you in my prayers! Be strong and know that God has one more beautiful angel with him. Ashley was one of the greatest actresses of our times. It’s so sad that she’s gone at such a young age. I will always see her beautiful smile when I hear her name.
RIP Ashley you are missed!

Malina Says:

As a student, it is seldom that you find a professional actor/actress sharing and taking an interest in you. But you, have brought a warmth and interest into my career and have shown love like I have never felt before! You have given me a desire to continue and one day, I would truly be like you! You have invested in my life, just by your smile, your care and your love. Heaven is much richer, but our God knows why He had to take you.

My sincere condolences to your family and may God be your refuge at this time.

You will always remain in my heart and be my inspiration to continue to be like you!

Rest in Peace, my dear Ashley,

Until we meet again.

Malina

 
PATSY Says:

To THE FAMILY OF Ashley Callie

The loss of Ashley Callie has touched many hearts. We want to express our sympathies to the family and
our prayers are with you all the way. It breaks our
heart that God only chooses the talented and wonderful people. We know exactly what u feel but time is the only healer.

We loved her acting & will always be remembered.
A great loss to the South African Community.

love

Sam & Patsy

 
Alison Hayes Says:

It is so unbelievable that the life of such a talented, beautiful and gracious person is over. The first thing I think of when I wake up in the morning is that you are no longer with us. I would like to have seen you go on to achieve greater things in your acting career – but this was not to be. My heartfelt sympathy to your family. I am very sure a large void will be felt by the cast and crew of Isidingo. Farewell beautiful lady, you will not be forgotten.

 
Nthabiseng Says:

The Callie family,

My deepest condolences goes out to u at large. Be strong and know that God wont put u thru wat u cant handle, he will c u thru every step of the way. Ashely will be sorely missed, her charismqa, lively personality and killer smile. A star has really fallen and the world has lost one of the greatest actresses.

 
Wendy Says:

While our lives enveloped us with busyness and everydday life happenings, who would have known that the Lord was busy preparing a table with the finest linen, the best silverware and in the surrounds of a beautiful setting in expectation of dining with a princess. He wisped her away when we least expected it, to take her to a place of tranquility and awesome beauty, a place that is fit for one so beautiful as Ashley. May she be touched by the awesomeness of her new home just as she touched so many lives down here.

May the warmth of God’s Love fill the void that your daughter, sister, friend, colleague, acquaintance has left.

Yolande Says:

To all the Ashley Callies fans, I loved her caracter and her personality and I think she still deserve the BEST ACTRESS award that she was nominated for,she would have won it.So I think we should all stand together and help make that happen for her,that would be the last thing we can do for her.

To her family I pray you would find comfort in Gods hands she will be missed but you can hold on that thought she is in Good Hands now.

Love
Yolande

 
Fifs Says:

As an Isidingo fan, one could not help but love the character of Leone. She was everything a girl should strive to become as a women – confident, presentable, dignified, successful and lovely yet showing a little vulnerability every now and again.

Ashley played Leone perfectly and even though I didn’t know her personally, one picked up through interviews that Ashley had these traits which is an inspiration for any young South African women.

Thank you, Ashley, leaving such a meaningful legacy by one so young is inspiration in itself.

To the Callie family – time heals, celebrate a life that has inspired so many.

Love always
Fifs

 
Fatima Says:

Dearest Callie Family.

My sincerest condolences to you on the passing of Ashley, What an amazing, beautiful, elegant lady. I was fortunate enough to have seen her a couple of times in person and she was even more beautiful in person.

My God grant you strength during this awful time. If we feel so terribly sad at her loss, I can only imagine what you must be going through.

I don’t think I could bear to watch Isidingo now that Ashley will no longer be a part of the show.

I was very pleased and relieved to read that the producers of Isidingo have decided not to replace Ashley. THANK YOU Pumla Hopa and team. No one would have done her role justice.

To Ashleys parents it must be a great source of comfort for you to know how much your daughter was loved, admired and respected.

May her dear soul rest in peace.

 
Roxzanne Says:

Dearst Callie family, friends and fans of Ashley Callie.

I cried when i heard that Ashley had passed. I cant couldnt understand why i was so affected by her death when i did not know her personally, but i realised that her incredible on-screen presence touched some part inside of me. She is physically gorgeous and the epitome of a lady, with her elegant mannerisms and laughter and smile that is her own – not lee’s. That is something about her that i will always remember. I wish i could say something that would diminish the pain, but i know first hand that it never really does. My elder brother passed away in a car accident and my other brother was later involved in one and sustained severe brain injuries. It pains me that he isnt quite himself, but i do thank God everyday that he is still here and i try not to be selfish and think of what would make me feel better. I believe that Ashley, just like my elder brother, is in peace and truly deeply does remain on in our hearts and minds forever. Instead of saying sorry for your loss, i would rather thank you for bringing a child and sister into this world that touched so many people’s lives. Thank you for raising a daughter and sister to be so massively proud of for all she achieved throughout her precious life. xxx

 
Nadia Adam Says:

To the family, friends, fans and not forgetting loving partner of Ashley Callie . . . My thoughts and prayers are with you all. Let us not just mourn the sad loss of the one we loved but also celebrate her life she had with us. Many might ask-why did we have to lose her. The thing is our Lord tends to choose the best rose in his garden-Ashley was his rose. Remember we are not here to live forever-God has sent us here-we are here on holiday and will have to return home,that being heaven. I loved Ashley-she was really an inspiration to all of us. I will never forget her and will continue to support her love ones over the years. Love Nadia Adam, Durban.

 
Kate Says:

I am a mother of three and one of my biggest fears in life is to lose one of my chidren. I can only imagine what Ashley’s family are going through. My sincerest condolences to her family and friends, on the passing of a beautiful woman and remarkable actress!

Be strong in the arms of the angels.
Love and light,

I met Ashley about a year ago. I was a shop assistant and she bought a few items in my store. Her warm smile and lovely energy made this a special memory as I was also a huge fan of hers.

She will be missed. My prayers are with her family and friends in this tragic time.

 
Maurice Says:

Im still so so sad:(
I think it would be wonderful to have a tribute gallery with some pictures of Ash in her everyday ‘real’ life and her exciting acting journey.

 
Sue Says:

Dear Callie Family
My heart goes out to you. I get a lump in my throat each time I think of Ashley.
I pray that God may comfort you in this time of berievement. May you seek His face when nothing else seems to help.

 
Kirsten Lawrence Says:

May God be with the Callie family, friends and the cast of Isidingo during this time. We will miss you Ashley – Rest in Peace.
Love Kirsten

 
Debbie van Wyk-Kiranov Says:

It is with such sadness that I leave this message. I still find it hard to believe that Ashley Callie is no longer with us.

Like many others, I never met you, but felt like I knew you. What will Isidingo be without you??? I always admired your elegance and style and will truly miss you on the 18:30 slot on SABC3.

To Ashley’s family, partner, friends and Isidingo cast, my sincere and heartfelt condolences in this time of terrible loss and sadness.

Rest in Peace Ashley, Namaste.

Love, light and angel dust
Debbie

 
Erika Says:

To Ashley’s friends and family,

I am so terribly sorry for your loss- I’ve been praying with you and millions of others for Ashley’s recovery and her passing away came as a total shock! I’ve lost someone very close to me, but still I can’t imagine what you must be going through losing such a beautiful friend/ sister/ daughter. You are not alone- South Africa is in pain with you and will continue praying for strength to pull you through this!

 
Doreen Says:

You were truly remarkable. Rest in peace. I will miss you calling Barker “Daddy”.

 
George Says:

God took what he wanted, we must learn to accept. I will miss you sorely. The family must just be strong and trust in God.

Ashley – I am so devastated that you have been taken from us at this time in your life, I felt like I knew you. You will be sorely missed!! May God be with your family at this very terrible time!

 
Liana Says:

I am still in shock at the fact that Ashley is no longer with us. Like many others – I felt like I knew her purely due to the fact that her acting performance spoke to all of us in one way or another.. She was beautiful both inside & out.. I find myself watching Isidingo & indulging in the thought that she is still with us.. May her soul rest in peace.. To her family & friends – I pray that God will provide you with the strength to get through this difficult time.. Its easier said than done- but her life should be celebrated because she indeed touched the lives of so many people.. Ashley – I’ll miss you

 
Jen Says:

Dear Ashley

I am still in shock that you have left us. I didnt even know you were in an accident until my friend told me that you had passed away. My sincere condolences to you and your family friends, co workers and all that knew you

Our dear Ashley… Thank you for being such a fine example of young South African, home grown talent. You played an amazing role and from what we saw, you were as astonishing on stage and off! My deepest sympathy to the Callie family – may God comfort you. Farewell to a South African legend xxxx

 
Natalie Le Clue Says:

Can anyone tell me what Ashley’s favourite colour was, I would love to wear it tommorow.

 
Natalie Le Clue Says:

Hey everyone. I made this short tribute to Ashley. It is just the way I will always remeber her. Radiant, elegant and eternally beautiful. Cheers to you Ash!!!

admin Says:

Beautiful Natalie, thank you for sharing this. If you put it up at a video hosting site, we can put it up on the front page for everyone to play. If you do, please paste the link here.

 
Natalie Le Clue Says:

Thanks, I seem to be having some difficulty in doing that, maybe you could download from mediafire and post it somewhere? Hope you can help, do you have any idea what Ashley’s favourite colour was?

 
admin Says:

No problem, we’ll make it happen. I don’t know for a fact which colours were Ash’s favourite but I think if you go with purple, red, green or blue (judging by pics of her and what she chose to wear), you’ll be going in the right direction.

 
Natalie Le Clue Says:

Thanks, I’ll be wearing them tomorrow in her honour, as I live in PE I cant be at the memorial service.

 
Estelle Says:

Dear “Admin” (everyone involved)

sasha Says:

It’s so sad that it takes the passing of a loved one to get people to stand together.

Ashley, you were truly the most beautiful person on our TV screens. Every day you brought hope and joy to so many people who never met you. You inspired us with your strength, your passion for life and everything you did, and the way in which you always treated everyone with respect. The world, and especially our beautiful country, is a better place for having known you. You make me proud to be South African!

My heart, my thoughts and my prayers go out to your loved ones. Ashley will never be forgotten!

 
Fatima Says:

Thank you Natalie, What a beautiful tribute to an amazing, talented, stunning lady. I will never forget you Ashley.

 
Leigh - Ann Says:

Thank you Natalie for your Ashley tribute. It’s just how I will remember Ash, radiant and beautiful. I can’t seem to stop thinking about Ashley. At the most unexpected times I will just burst out into tears. She encompassed everything a woman should strive to be and I will continue in doing so. I said it before and I will say it again, I feel as if I have lost a very dear friend. Ash,I grieve for you and I will keep you in my heart and memories forever. I will miss your talent, I will miss everything about you that made you Ashley Callie, including your smile. But most of all I will miss YOU, Ashley.

To the Callie family and friends
My deepest condolences. I keep you in my thoughts and prayers everyday. I can’t begin to imagine how hard this must be for you. May God guide you through this difficult time and shower you with unendless love. I hope you can take comfort in knowing that your daughter and sister touched so many lives and that she was a true South African idol.
God bless

ursula grice Says:

Ashley,

Memories are golden,
and maybe its true.
We never wanted these memories,
We only wanted you.
A million times we needed you,
a million times we cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.
In life we loved you dear;y,
in death we love you still.
In our hearts you hold a place,
no one could ever fill.
If tears could build a stairway
and heartache made a lane,
Id walk the path to heaven
and bring you back again.
Our family chain is broken,
and nothing seems the same.
But as god calls us one by one,
the chain will link again.

i dont for one minute believe the accident was your fault.
We all know how teenagers drive.
Why didi it have to be you?
I never knew you personally, but the grief is as if i did,
I miss you and im sorry.
love to you always
from Ursula, Jaco, Jason

Leola Agulhas Says:

Dear Callie Family,
My sincere condolences on the passing of Ashley. God’s plans are not always easy for us to understand, but have faith in Him and He will give you comfort in your time of grief.

I never had the privilege of meeting Ashley in person, but belief that she was a wonderful person. Sometimes word cannot adequately express the grief we feel with your family, but I sincerely hope my poems below can convey our feelings and comforting thoughts from my family to yours.

On this…your grieving day

I’ve searched my mind a thousand times
To find the words to say
A comforting thought on the loss of your loved one
On this, your grieving day…

But every word and phrase I know
Seems worthless to convey
The grieve and pain I feel with you
On this, your grieving day…

For comfort, put your trust in the Lord
And follow in his way
He will give you strength and courage
On this, your grieving day…

LRA Agulhas

Sudden Death

All the love my soul has had,
Is part of all the love we’ve shared.
For I don’t know why death snatched away
My gift of love from God today…

If I had known you would not be here
Today, tomorrow or even next year
I would have loved you even more
More than all the days before…

I never thought that this could be
That you would not be here with me.
Sometimes I think it is just a dream
Soon I’ll awake and hear your joyful scream…

But when morning comes and I awake
I’ll see that death your live did take.
Sometimes I still awake at night
Searching my mind to have you once more in sight
But all that I will ever find,
Are the memories you have left behind.

LRA Agulhas

 
Phumi Says:

Dear Ashley

I heard on the radio about you leaving us, my heart broke down, I didn’t beleive it.I still dont. Go well Ashley “Lee” we shall meet on the other side.
I loved you even though I never really met you. It surely felt like I knew you not just on tv but you as Ashley. I wish you did’nt have to go so soon, when I was still enjoying to see your talent everyday on the sreen.Isidingo will not be same without you, I usually missed few of isidingo episodes, but since last week, Am triying so hard not to miss any, just to see your beutiful face, smile, eyes once more.You shall forever be missed.

Aneesa Lingham Says:

I offer my sincere condolences to Ashley’s family, friends and cast of Isidingo. She will be sorely missed.

I am devastated by the tragic way in which Ashley was taken from us. She was and still is beautiful on the inside and out.

Being an avid Isidingo fan it’s so sad to still see Ashley grace the screen. It’s so hard to believe that she’s no longer with us.

Your tragic death has brought back sad memories for me as I lost my mum nearly two years ago, she was a loyal Isidingo fan too and she loved you dearly and because you passed away on my birthday 15 February 2008.

You are in my prayers/duahs.

Rest in peace Angel.
Love you lots.Mwahxxxhugsxxx!

Bongekile Says:

It is with great sadness to hear those bad news of Ashley Callie. She was great. Masingamsoli uThixo, wayesazi yena engekazalwa uAshley ukuba umbekele ntoni emhlabeni kwaye uya kuhamba ngaluphi na uhlobo, ngokuba siya kuhamba ngeendlela ezingafani. Kuthiwa kunomda uThixo awubekayo ebomini bomntu besekufike eloo xesha. Ithi ibhayibhile yonke into inexesha layo, ixesha lokuzalwa nexesha lokubhubha. Kusapho lwakwa Callie lungamsoli oPhezulu uyazi yena ukuba ubabekele ntoni njengokuba ethathe uAshley. Wanga umphefumlo wakhe ungaphumla ngoxolo.

Ashley,

I have never met you; I used to see you in the television through our local television called ITV, here in Tanzania. I have always admired your management style and your character as Lee Haines. You will be missed, really! Bwana ametoa, Bwana ametwaa, jina la Bwana na lihimidiwe! May Your Soul Rest in Peace. Amen

Lillian

 
Brian Peete Says:

She’s not lost.
God gave her a smile
and took her hand
and welcomed her
to a familiar land.
And its much more
warm and fair
than the last time
she lingered there.
And though for her
familiar voice, you yearn,
and every day, you wish
for her return,
she is home at last,
comforted by the love,
of every angel
in heaven above.
She sheds no tears
for the path she trod;
for she has found
everlasting warmth,
beauty, and comfort
in the hand of God.
She’s not lost.

 
Loshnee Iyer Says:

I write this in deep sorrow, my deepest sympathies to the callie family. I wish that I could say something that would make your soorow easier but unfortuanetly all I can say is sorry. I hope you find peace and be strong. Ashley would have wanted everybody to celebrate her life.

Rachel Says:

I can’t say i ever met Ashley, but to me the screen came alive when she was on it. I can’t believe at how many talents we lose on a daily basis.

To her family, nothing anyone says can make up for the emptiness that you now feel, memories is all you have left and the knowledge that Ashley has touched a lot of people in her life that will truly miss her.

Ashely may you find peace where you are.

 
Geri Meiring Says:

little did we know thursday would have been her last,
expecting her to sit in our living room along with isidingo cast.
i will not claim to know her personally,
yet she welcomed us into her zone where we all felt at home.
Lee as we got to know ashley,
will live forever in the broken hearts of all her admirers.

words of consolation are all that we can offer to you the callie family,
just know that the majority of sout africa feel your tradegy.

ashley i will miss you
you were the reason why i watched isidigo.
your talent is out of this world,

there where you find yourself today and forevermore
I LOVE YOU ASHLEY CALLIE

Rest in peace!!

 
Linda Says:

It is truly so, so sad to have lost such a rising star! I stopped watching Isidingo a while back due to a boring story line, but always clicked over to see what ‘Lee’was up to. I absolutely admired Ashley…my sincere condolences to all the family, to have lost such a precious member of family….
Ashley – another Angel in God’s family – you will be sorely missed by your South African public.

Zimkhitha Nhlapo Says:

When I heard the news about the accident I prayed and hoped she will recover. Then the sun went down on the 15th, I was numb for a while. I felt like I have lost someone I have known. Ash, even though we never met, my heart is broken by your sudden unexpected demise. Africa will miss one of its gems but I am sure you make a beautiful angel. Rest in peace, you will always be in our hearts.

 
Dibuseng Kometsi Says:

My heart is bleeding because I met Ashley late 2006 in Bloemfontein Mimosa Mall she was there with Rajesh colleague of Isidingo and 7delaan cast members were there also.I still can’t believe she is no more she was so sweet and she was forever smiling, what a humble person she was.At least I have a picture of her,myself and Rajesh together to comfort myself.I actually look at it every time I wake up in the morning and i will tell myself that even if she has passed away part of her its in my room.

My her soul rest in peace!I will like to send condolescences to her family, friends,Isidingo cast and fans.Guys comfort yourself with this scripture Psalm 23:4

 
Muzi Says:

Life doesn’t have a road map, which means we shape our destiny . With each day that passes we get to know people better & understand them for the individual they are. We fall in and out of LOVE with some . Others come and go ; some live a foot step that will never be forgotten. With these few words I prefer not to judge & hope my fellow human beings wont judge why Ashley was taken away from us within a blink of an eye. Rest In Peace Ashley ; You will Forever Stay in Our Hearts .

In the words of Kahil Gibran: “When you are sorrowful look again in your heart, and you shall see that in truth you are weeping for that which has been your delight.”

Ashley you were our “delight” and everytime I think of you it will not be with weeping, but with joy for all the happy memories and your indomitable spirit!

 
Bernadette Tayler Says:

Ashley may your beautiful soul rest in peace. I will never forget you and your brilliant performance in Isidingo. it feels as though I have lost a sister, a close relative. May your spirit live on in our hearts forever. My sincere condolences to the family

 
Deonette Nieuwoudt Says:

I was a very big fan of Ashley and i adore her personality, she was and will always be our Angel our role model.

Kerry Says:

Ashley, I watched a tribute to you on ’3 Talk’ today. Afterwards I simply sat on my bed doing the ‘ugly cry’ (as Oprah would call it). It’s as if I’ve lost a dear and beautiful friend. I cannot believe that you won’t be gracing our screens any longer. You had such style and charm; you were a true lady. May you rest in peace… You will be missed.

And to Ashley’s family and friends: My heart goes out to you all. I pray that you will find the strength to get through the coming months, and that the sun will shine again for you one day.

 
Anita & Dani Says:

Thank you for your beautiful smile and providing us with hours of entertainment. We shall miss

helly Says:

“twilight now the princess and her veil,
darkness spreads to settle her departure final

lend her wind and chimes and pearls for peace, let her go to explore
what only angels know,
lend her the eastern breeze, set her free north of this shore,
its time to let her go.

we love you callie
helly, rian and family

 
Tebogo Says:

To Ashley’s family may you be comforted in this difficult time that you’re facing. You are probably asking yourselves why is this happening to you, but the song writer says: By and By when the morning comes all the saints of God are gathered at home, we’ll tell the story how we’ve overcomed and we’ll understand it better by and by. One thing i know is that Ashley OVERCAME DEATH.

Words at this stage will but only reflect the shock and horror of your passing.I have been trying to savour the moments I now get to watch you on screen,but you will forever be remembered.Fly well with the angels above!!!!!

 
Natalie Victor Says:

You were our PRINCESS DIANA OF SOUTH AFRICA… EXCEPT A WHOLE LOT MORE BEAUTIFUL AND REAL.

Bukiwe Says:

Hi Ashley, we will always miss you. Rest in peace.

 
Rachel and Michelle Says:

Hold On!!

There have been times in life when all seemed lost.
Life just wasn’t worth living through another day.
Then you need to remember thingsthat are important to you.

For as low as we fall there is alwayssomething or someone, somewhere
to help pull you back from the deep pits of darkness.
Once you feel yourself slipping, grab onto that something or someone.

We wonder why life has given us such a bad deal. That is not the question.
Love, Hope, and Faith will guide us.
Look around and find the things you need to live for.
If we look hard enough, we will find the place we need to be.

Hold on for your loved ones, hold on for yourself.
God will take you where He needs you.
Until then make the most of what you have.
Give the most that you can, Love the best that you can, and never lose hope.

Just hold on.

 
Jesica Says:

Ashley, we’ve never met but from watching you in Isidingo, it feels like I know you. You’ll be sadly missed on screen and by all in life. Rest in an eternal sweet sleep and you’ll always be remembered and cherished for the amazing person you were both on screen and off! Goodbye sweet Ashley!

 
Selina Says:

Hi All,
Just thought that everyone should take comfort from this poem:-

Don’t grieve for me, for now I’m free
I’m following the path God has laid you see.
I took His hand when I heard him call
I turned my back and left it all.

I could not stay another day
To laugh, to love, to work, to play.
Tasks left undone must stay that way
I found that peace at the close of day.

If my parting has left a void
Then fill it with remembered joy.
A friendship shared, a laugh, a kiss
Oh yes, these things I too will miss.

Be not burdened with times of sorrow
I wish you the sunshine of tomorrow.
My life’s been full, I savored much
Good friends, good times, a loved one’s touch.

Perhaps my time seemed all too brief
Don’t lengthen it now with undue grief.
Lift up your hearts and peace to thee
God wanted me now; He set me free.

 
Sara Judy Says:

Dearest Ashley. Of all the people I watched on tv my whole life, I stood up and took notice the first time I saw you on Isidingo. You showed the class, the brilliance and the intelligence needed for Leonie Haines and everyday I would make sure that I sat by the telly to watch one of your outstanding performances. I will miss you terribly because you truly were an angel on earth!Thank you for sharing your life with us…

B.E.M. Says:

To the Callie family…When I read message no. 47 by Mark Ngwenyama, I was greatly touched, and as I was reading it, I kept wondering if anyone had translated it to you?? It’s a powerful message that you just have to understand. It’ll continue to make you proud of your dearest daughter. She was a very strong personality and she made a VERY HUGE impression on her fans—and I’m one of those who didn’t know her personally…I only met her as “Lee” If no one has translated or interpreted Mark’s message for you yet, I’ll be glad to. May Ashley’s soul rest in eternal peace.She’ll be greatly missed on Isidingo.

Mark, sibonga kakhulu kulomlaeto wakhu, Ngwenyama! Muhle kakhulu. Siyatshemba yitawulala ngekuthula, INSIKA Ashley!!

AND THAT ASHLEY CALLIE IS THE PRINS=CESS DIANA OF SOUTH AFRICAN TELEVISION…
SHE GAVE HER ALL AND FOR THAT I THANK HER AND SHE HAS BEEN THE GREATEST HERO IN MY LIFE FOR THE WORK THAT SHE DID

 
anne Says:

Last week Ashley was totally amazing with her brilliant acting – it is so so sad that she has gone and it will be very hard not to ever see her again.
Isidingo is wonderful but it cannot ever be the same without her.
She must have been a wonderful person in real life.
I feel for her family and friends and just hope that the passing of time will ease their great sorrow.

 
Jenny Says:

Ashley you will be sorely missed by all. I wish i could have met you. We share the same birthday and so i will always remember you especially on that day.

ed Says:

AC

What is this sadness without name?
What is this news to be laid
in some store of grief and filed away?
A young woman is dead today.

Your photograph on the front page,
302 words to explain
that you, full of life and beautiful –
will not be seen again.

Sadhia Says:

Isidingo is not to be watched in my house anymore, too painful without her.

 
still in shock! Says:

I know how u feel Sadhia, dont think I can watch isidingo any more either. just these few days without her has been too empty.
the star of the show is no more – she just used to brighten up any scene she was in.

 
Sadhia Says:

She was the only actress that made the show amazing, her class, her acting, her SMILE! So as of now, Isidingo is finished for me.

 
Astrid Hofmeyr Says:

Since Thursday last week, I have been watching every show in anticipation of Ashley’s passing. In many ways, I have been revisiting unresolved grief of my mothers own passing. Last night’s episode was gut renching, as I looked upon the faces of those who loved her in the Isidingo cast and every tear was painful to watch and found myself weeping with them. To Ashley’s family, your tears are those of a nation, who mourn the loss of one of our brightest stars. May you find strength.

 
Yolanda Deveruex Says:

I was shocked to accidentally run across a Website mentioning Ashley’s passing. I watch her in the US as Isidingo has become popular here. She actually made the show. She has been compared to Theron, and was was definitely a polished actress.
We are behind what is being shown there. Nandipha is still in the mental institution in the US. We can still see many more of her shows as we are so behind. I could only cry when I discovered that she was gone. Rest in peace, Lee.

:(

 
Mark Says:

what a loss.. even now I still think she was one of
South Africa’s most underutilized actors. She was film quality in acting, style and appearance.

I suppose its only been on late that our movie industry is getting a boost -Totsie, Hansie etc.. but if we had more block buster movies she would definitely be in them!

miss u so much even 2day i cnt stop crying.

 
M Grant (Ms) Says:

Ashley

I couldn’t believe you are gone! I literally read the sad news today 3rd Sep 2009. I watch you every night on Isidingo. My fiance think am obsessed with your character, but you played Leonie Haines so well and your acting skills are impeccable, you just make me laugh Lee….Am so numb my this very sad sad news.
Its like you are still alive as, we in London (UK) still watch you on screen.
Rest in Peace and I know you are with the angels.
