I met Heather about 10 years ago through my bestfriend and her sister Jamie Marcum. Heather was very pleasant to be around and was very easy to get along with. She had a beautiful soul...I'm so sorry for your loss.

Mom, was very caring. Always went out of her way for everyone else, putting her problems last. She loved her family and all three of her children very much. Nothing would stop her from helping us when we needed it. Even for her friends, she would make sure they are set. She didn't like asking for help, she was very independent and strong willed. She would battle the demons her self. Some demons are just too much to handle alone. We all love and miss her so much! We all know you are in a better place. Untill we meet again. I love you mom.💚💜💙
