Heidi was a wonderful sister-in-law. She always seemed to remember special occasions for family members. Her uniqueness made her one of a kind. She will be missed. Love and Blessings!

I have so many memories of my Aunt Heidi and a really fun and special one is when we went to Barbados with a side trip to Martinque when I was a young girl. Recently we talked about that trip and laughed about some of the happenings. I used to spend time with her and Uncle Garland at their shop and apartment and many times at my parents home. She was always so very sweet to me and I'm thankful for the memories. My sincere condolences to her immediate family. God Bless.

This wonderful lady was my Aunt Heidi, one of a kind. Oh the conversations we would have. Her Swiss accent never changed, loved hearing her voice. She and Uncle Garland would come to Chase City to visit his brothers and the family get together. Love and Prayers for the family, she will be greatly missed.
