Shaw, Heather M.
Heather M Shaw, 34 of Windsor was lifted on the wings of Angels from the wreckage of her car on March 18, 2013. She is survived by her mother and dad, Alicia and Dan Laris; her father Andrew Shaw; her grandparents Fred G Velez and Norma Whitmarsh; her brothers Dan Laris and Andre Shaw; her sister/cousin Serenia Bowman; Uncles: Fred and Robert; Aunties: Yulonda, Stephanie, Felicia, Laurie; Susie, Diane, Joan, Linnie and Amy. She also leaves with love; a very large extended family who loved her in return. She also leaves behind with love: many friends from Windsor School and LaSalle University where she attended school, and Broome Developmental Center where she worked. Heather was creative and kind with a wonderful sense of humor, style and grace that showed in everything she did. Heather recently wrote this but it applies to her so well:
Like all great people, you touched so many lives. You shaped the ideals and, beliefs of accepting minds and inspired love in the hearts of most. I will try to mourn your passing, Because as I look to the people who knew you and delve within myself l can still feel you with me. I will take comfort in having known you. I will find strength and love in the lessons you taught me. My memories of you will continually inspire and push me to be a better person. And when I start to cry I will try to remember that you are not gone, but simply waiting for the rest of us to reach enlightenment. Special Thanks to the Campville Emergency Squad and the staff of Wilson Hospital who valiantly tried to save Heather's life. Funeral Services will be held at the J.F. Rice Funeral Home, Inc, 150 Main Street, Johnson City Friday at 5PM. The family will receive friends at the funeral home Friday afternoon from 2PM until the time of the services.
