Mary and I send our deepest condolences to Bill and Family Heidi was such a wonderful person .We remember the great times we all had together while at the Mess functions Heidi was always so full of fun and laughter. And the time we met at the Black Watch Reunion with our Volkswagen campers she stepped out and told us that Princess Diana was killed in a car accident and gave Mary two knitted hand cloths to remember her and Mary still has those Cloth’s . We will remember Heidi always with fond memories and love.

To Bill and Children. We are so sorry for your loss of Heidi. She was always there for us and our children with baking and knitted mitts and scarfs for them. We enjoyed our times with both of you in Cape Breton and especially at our cottage in Margaree. There were many visits there and good times playing cards or games and spending Thanksgiving there one year with a full turkey dinner and lots of laughter. We will have a mass here in her honor. See you in the Spring time.
Love Allan and Eileen MacDonald

Our lives definitely will not be the same without Heidi. Her character spoke volume of who she was! Her thoughtfulness to many of the staff at Gisele’s never went unnoticed, generosity was overwhelming, hard working, loyal and dedicated to every situation. She fought with courage right to the end. Every April on our birthday she would call and say “do you know that between you and I we are ——-years old !” as she doubled our years .
That heart of gold stopped beating but her memory will be with me forever. Rest In Peace my dear friend.
Bill remember, I am here for you through this very difficult time
