We are sorry we were unable to attend Heather's funeral. Our family held our little service for our dear Heather, telling Heather stories, remembering happy times here in Mascoutah when Heather and family were our neighbors. We remember Heather's great generosity in time and spirit. Leah remembered how Heather helped her get through algebra, stopping whatever she was doing to help. We remembered Heather's wonderful home made pasta, New Year's Eve parties that were the best, our long walks, and much more. I still can hear Heather say, "Hey, Paula, let's walk". We were best friends and neither time or circumstance can change that. Our family laughed and cried together and ended with the worry that we don't know how your family will get through all of this. It is all too much to bear, but our prayer is that you will be as strong as Heather was. I know she is looking down on you and that her determined spirit will guide you through this desparate time. After all, you are all special because you have part of Heather inside of you.
Until we meet again,
With much love,
Paula, Dwight, Cari, Leah, and Elisa
Dear Bruce and family,
My thoughts and prayers are with you during this time. I was so sad to read of Heather's death, and will always remember her very fondly. She was an inspiring, caring woman and I will always remember our times together at Migrant Head Start.
So sorry for the loss of Heather, she was a wonderful lady and will be greatly missed.
The Pfaff family will always have a special place in my heart, so their loss is my loss too.
I never had the pleasure of knowing Heather, but I'm sure that with her and Bruce's love of family I would have been welcomed by her as a long lost brother.
There is genuine sadness in my heart at your being taken from your loving families arms, and I share in the sorrow of your children and your children's children.
I also offer my sincere condolences to the Graham family and to all who had the pleasure of knowing and loving Heather and have suffered the pain of her loss.
