Mrs. Heskew has always been ... and will always be ... one of my favorite people. I have told many people over the years; that, if I could have chosen my own parents, I would choose Mr. & Mrs. Heskew. I've known them my entire life and consider my life enriched because of their friendship. They left an indelible mark on the education of Northside ISD students .... and they produced generations of teachers in their children and grandchildren. Mrs. Heskew is the matriarch of a very loving family .... the epitome of the American Dream ... from which we all could learn about true, selfless love. I will miss her so very much. She loved me so.
