"Heather had a heart of gold and shared her wealth with everyone she came in contact with. Her beautiful face and sparkling smiles will not be forgotten. She was a forever and faithful friend to all those that knew and loved her," her family said.
"We will be forever thankful for the gifts that she has given us, such as her compassionate heart and sweet carefree spirit. One of the greatest lessons Heather taught everyone was to be nonjudgmental of others and give liberally. She truly strived to walk as Jesus did and loved him with all of her heart."
