I am so sorry for your loss. She was a very strong, beautiful, determined lady. I took care of her many times while she was in the hospital. We always chatted. I pray she is at peace. I know she will be missed greatly!

I will always remember all the good times and smiles shared with you, Ms. G. Your generous and outgoing nature always warmed my heart. You welcomed me into your home and never treated me as a guest, but rather as an extension of your own family. I'm so blessed to have Heather in my life, as she has been like a sister to me for the last 17 years. I will always remember your love for all things music; my favorite memory will always be watching you dancing and singing to Billy Idol out in the rain. We all thought you'd lost your mind, but looking back you were so blissful in that moment, the rain didnt even phase you. I aspire to have passion and fun like that in my life always, no matter how tough things may get. I hope you're singing your heart out and dancing like no ones watching right now. Rest easy, Ms. G.
