8.13.07
Top local Figure competitor, Asia K. Mays, 24, passed away unexpectedly at her residence on August 8, 2007 in Colorado Springs. She was born September 3, 1982 in Fayetteville North Carolina. She enjoyed boxing, figure competition, aerobics and traveling. She leaves to cherish her memory, her son, William Mays, and a host of other relatives and friends. Visitation will be held from 4-6 pm, Monday August 13, 2007 at Angelus Funeral Directors 2535 Airport Road. Funeral Services will be held at 1:00 pm Tuesday August 14, at Angelus Funeral Directors. 
I am deeply saddened by this news.  Please take a moment of silence to offer a prayer of support for her son and family/friends.  Asia placed 3rd at the Shawn Ray CO Pro/Am, and won her class at the NPC Southern CO earlier this year.  She will be greatly missed by all of us in the NPC as well.
