Sweet girl who is greatly missed.

Jumbo & Kathy and Family so very sad to hear of the loss of your beautiful amazing Daughter. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

So sorry for your loss Kathy and family. :(

I was so sad to hear about Heather. She had such a wonderful presence and charm; always smiling and kind. She grew into a lovely person and young woman with promise and grace. I'm sure that all who knew her will miss her tremendously and carry her in their hearts always. My sincerest condolence to Heather's family and loved ones.

My sincerest condolences to Heather's family and friends.
Most sincerely,
Ellen Gnaedinger, DNP student

Heather, this is not how things were supposed to be. We would talk about being nurses and being back in school, you had so much more to give and live! Very sad I can not be there, I am in Italy. You and your family/friends are in my thoughts.

Jimbo and Kathy: My heart is broken for you and your family at the passing of your beautiful Heather. Claire kept me posted on the great sadness of Heather's illness. Please know that I send along my sympathy, prayers, and best thoughts for you and your family.

With sympathy -

No words can not describe the profound sadness I feel in learning of your passing. Your sweet smile and vibrant spirit will be surely missed by all those who knew you well at UMass. May your soul rest in eternal peace with the angels above. REST IN PEACE Heather!!!

Heather will be missed! She was vibrant in life, contributing thoughtfully and with great conviction and passion in class. A kind and shining star. So swiftly she was taken away from this world, my heart and thoughts are with her family and friends at this time.
