I am incredibly sorry to hear this news. My heart and prayers go out to you tonight. The last time I worked with Heather she wanted me to sit with her and we watched Sesame Street together. Her smile and laugh were undeniably contagious.

I am so sorry for your loss Belinda. Heather taught me so much while I worked with her. She reminded me how to play childhood games that I hadnt played in so many years. Heathers laugh was infectious! There will always be a piece of my heart with Heathers name on it. I surely will miss her.

I'm so very sorry for your loss. I had Heather as a student at Central Columbia Middle School, and enjoyed very much working with her. She was a special and unique young lady.

I am so heartbroken to hear this news. Heather was a joy to be around and I loved the time I was able to spend with her. Sometimes she'd be up for a game of Candyland, Memory or thumb wrestling and sometimes we would just sit quietly. Even though I had not seen her in a while, I often thought of her. It was a privilege to have gotten to know her. I am truly sorry for your loss.

Belinda... I am so, so sorry for your family's immeasurable loss. I'll always remember Heather as a sweet little girl who loved her Mama and big sisters more than anything. I pray that in the midst of your sorrow, you are able to find peace and comfort in the beautiful memories you share. My prayers are with you all.
