Not sure what to say?

I was saddened to belatedly learn that Heather passed away in October. Heather was my point of contact for work and I had the pleasure of interacting with her on several occasions. Within all of those interactions, Heather was warm, outgoing and positive (which unfortunately are traits not universally shared in my industry.) I will miss our regular interactions and my condolences go out to her family, friends and co-workers.

To the family of Heather Bolek - I knew Heather for about ten years as her Mary Kay consultant. When I think of her, the word "gracious" comes to mind. Always so warm, friendly, and welcoming. And she adored her family. Absolutely adored all of you. She glowed when talking about you. I will miss her very much. A lovely person all around.

Worked with Heather for eleven years.Her smile was contagious.
You will be missed sweetie. I have never met a kinder, more caring person than you. They say your heart can't break. Not true.
You were loved by many. God gave you your wings and now you're in the loving arms of Jesus. Until we meet again. ❤

God bless your family, I pray he gives them the strength to get through this.

Heather was a great listener and friend while I was at FP. She helped me during a very troubled time, and I will never forget the comfort she provided. My condolences and prayers to the family. She will be greatly missed.
