To the Hornbeek family: on behalf of the UA alum that comprised the UA spirit squad (cheerleaders, Wilbur and Wilma) of the 90s, we extend our huge condolences to the family of one of our own. Our job was given to us to support our heroes, the student athletes of the university of Arizona during our tenure, and to give visibility to special people like Heidi. During that time these people became our own family of friends and we have often taken for granted that these larger than life people like Heidi, and all of those in our own lives are not here forever. Never would we have imagined someone so sweet and brilliant, gifted and talented as Heidi would be with us for such a short time. We are saddened for this shocking loss of such a dear person. The news of this has touched us and many of the student athlete alum community. Many condolences and prayers from all of us during this difficult time.
