    I live in England and we have been followers of Ashford and Simpson from the 70’s. Have bought their records and have been to their concert in London.

    I can’t believe that for example BET on-line does not have anything on Nicholas Asford’s death. Ashford and Simpson were masters at writing some fantastic songs for very famous artists and ones that they sung as well – were is the respect for Mr Ashford’s passing.

    I am going to look in Ebony on-line see how they remembered Nicholas Ashford.

    May he rest in peace and sincere condolences to Valerie and the family.
