Not sure what to say?

My sincerest condolences. I believe Heather will be a beacon of peace for the ages.

To the family of Heather Heyer, I want to say how sorry i am for your loss, and what a great loss it was. When i read and saw your daughters story my heart just broke. Her spirit is like no other. She stood for all things good. Her soul will forever go on and she will dance her way through the clouds. Your Angel on earth is now your Angel in heaven. Her soul will never leave you. May her bright light shine and fill your hearts with comfort and her memories will carry you through and guide you...

As a progressive supporter of Hillary Clinton, I am a 65-year old student of life, and a buddhist. As a non-combat vet I would have had no problem sharing a fox hole with you Heather. Not wanting to die, you nevertheless stood your ground. No parent should have to bury their young. May their days be filled with blessings from above, as your gentle spirit soars.

There was at that time, that night, a swelling of hate, emerging from the dark places where some had then given them legitimacy. Heather's death shined a light on that hatred and the violence it spawned. It took this tragedy to stop it in it's tracks and return it to the shadows. But the fight is not over. RIP Heather, you did not want to die that night, but you confronted evil straight in the face, and with your life gave many inspiration and courage to stand with you going forward. ...

You will be remembered for standing on the side of the just...I wish you were still here to continue your stance. I send your friends & family lots of love & strength.

This was wrong on so many levels,RIP Heather Heyer.

What an inspiration. This young woman is a true role model. Her life and her story is certainly inspiring me to do better. My The Lord strengthen her family.

May the God of all comfort be with the family and friends of this very courageous lady. Isaiah 51:12.

Your daughter will never be forgotten because what she did and tried to accomplish will be remember in the history books. So as you reflect on her life try to remember that others before her and will continue after her hoping to one day live in a world where there will be unified peace among all races of people regardless of who they are or where they may live. Psalms 72:7
