We have many fond memories of aunt Heidi visiting us in BC over the years. We admired her faithful dedication to her lord and saviour. She loved to laugh and lived her life to the fullest. She also was a great example of how to live a Christian life. She will be missed greatly by all our families.

My beautiful Godly aunt Heidi. My heart is full of all the memories I have of travelling to Leduc to visit all of my relatives. You were always so kind and loving to us. My Canadian family is very precious to me. Love to you all.
