It's rare in this world, one ever encounters another who is the epitome of strength, perseverance and unstoppable will power. Heather, you had all of those. I'm glad I was honored to have the experience of understanding your struggles and watching you never stop going forward, however you could. Thank you for being. Your existence and memory is based on nothing but an army's love for you and our blessings to your family to have the strength to get through this grief. You were,are and forever loved and missed. Be free in eternity my friend.

Heather and I may have never met in person, but I think of her as family and will so miss her. I loved finding the right card to send, or just sending pictures of my grandkids to share with her. I will forever think of you as the most beautiful butterfly God has ever created. 💜

In a World full of so many people..you shined so bright. You brought happiness and smiles to so many without even knowing. You my friend were a strong warrior..who taught many how to continue to fight..and live despite being so sick with MS. MS couldn't destroy your spirit. You will be missed by many. I thank you for always being a part of our lives💚
