Where do I begin? Any place would be a good place. I became friends with Heather the day she moved in. We hit it off when I introduced myself and she had the two sweet dogs with her. I absolutely loved her dogs. I was shopping one day and could not resist getting a t-towel for her beautiful black lab. Later Heather told me she loved it and had it displayed in her kitchen. That made me feel good. And how about the other times? Well I was going through a bit of stress and I heard my door bell ringing and I am thinking who the heck is that? Well it was darling Heather bringing me a bag of Jelly beans to comfort me. I was so happy, it actually comforted me. What about the times she had given me lovely slacks she had bought that were not the right size for her. And the time I opened my door and she had a beautiful see through vase with battery operated lights placed in it. I cried.
There are so many more acts of kindness she had done but let me get to just a few more. Halloween day I came home from the store and Heather was standing outside with her two sweeties (doggies) all dressed up in Halloween customs. It was so funny, I think Jazz was an old lady, can't remember. I am so thankful I took a picture of Heather and the dogs. I will cherish that picture forever. And who can forget her decoration of the yard. She planted flowers of all types and placed battery operated light in the front of the apartments. That meant that we the tenants could come home at night and see the shear beauty of our apartments being lite up. You kind of felt that you did not live in an apartment but had your own little cottage all to yourself! Heather once told me that people needed to feel special and appreciated. The acts of kindness she manifested towards other people is how Heather lived her life in the hopes that other people would feel special and appreciated. Thank you Heather for being such an awesome neighbor!!
