Big country Heath! We miss brother. Not a day goes by that I don't think about the impact you had not only on my life, but on the lives of everyone you've ever met.

Dear Ed & Holly, It is with deep sympathy for your loss and great honor to have known Heath but for a moment. I was the Flight Attendant on Heath's flight from Houston to Los Angeles. We laughed and talked like old friends, he had such a wonderful personality, very respectful and polite. My heart goes out to you and your family. Heath will forever be in the hearts of people he met because he left a little of himself with people he came in contact with, I know he did with me. Forever in my prayers. May God bless you and keep you today and forever more.
Always, Angela

He will be greatly missed and was such a gentle giant to all of us that had the privledge of knowing him. Heath will remain in hearts as the "gentle,big-hearted,loving young man with great passion for the game". You are all in our thoughts and prayers.

Dear Ed, Holly, and Brent –

When one’s focus is on helping students realize their potential, it is so hard to accept that Heath’s will never be fully attained. He is one of my more memorable students, not only for his great athletic potential but for his insights, intelligence, and sensitivity. I know you are proud of him and that he was, and still is, a source of encouragement for others. I would keep up with his progress over the seasons through various friends and resources from Peddie, but I lost track of him, and you, after UT. It was a delight to see his recognition at the end of this past season and I was hopeful for his future. His high grading by the NFL is a great indication of not only the athletic components but the other qualities that lead to true success, and those come from family and background. My sincere sympathies are with you.
March 30, 2008
My thoughts are with you. Heath was a great young man with a great work ethic and an even greater heart. The short time I worked with him as a trainer was very much a pleasure.

I am so sorry for your loss. My husband Johnny played football with Heath at Newberry. Though I've never met Heaths parents I feel like I've known you forever. Heath talked about you guys all the time. Heath was a great guy and a leader. He had such a big heart. I talked with Heath at the Wingate game last season. We laughed as we discussed him playing both sides of the feild. Heath was talking about his ankle injuries but with such a great attitude. I rember him asking for a hug with a big smile on his face. Heath is a winner and will always have a place in my heart. I will be praying for the family.
