I was a very close friend of Heidi's in high school and a several years in college. She was truly amazing in a million ways. She was a fantastic athlete, Skiing, tennis racket ball, Cheer etc., and had the most uplifting spirit I have ever seen, to this day. She is an absolute legend in regards to how she had the ability to generate joy in any room she entered. The warm heart and feelings she had for her Springer Spaniels was beyond compare. She was missed by so many, when she moved to Pennsylvania. And hearing of her diagnosis, was so very sad because, I knew she had to be the best wife and mother to her children anyone could hope for. God Bless you and Rest In Peace Heidi, you were an amazing example of what humanity has had to offer the world.
