I had the honor of meeting Heidi when she was 6, right from the start we had a special bond so easy to love. We would dance. She was always a very happy little girl, that smile would take your breath away. She was my little me. Her Mom is one of my Besties and meeting Judy was one of the best things that ever happened in my life! I now had another family, and , that is how I got to meet this little lovie, and over 40 years later she could still take my breath away. I have so many beautiful memories. I will always love you and never ever forget you. I love you all More, More, More Sincerely, Auntie Di

Heidi, my sweet daughter, I miss you so much. Life will never be the same without you here with us. You were the bravest person I've ever known, you endured so much in your life with so much dignity. You survived and kept giving us another miracle, you got up & walked, again & again, against all odds. And then your smile lit up the room. God bless you my darling. You will live on in my heart every minute of everyday, until we meet again. I LOVE YOU, Mom

While the loss of a loved one is never easy, even when anticipated, it is most certainly the hardest when they are taken from us too soon. Your recent loss of your beloved Heidi whose tragic death at such a youthful age is definitely in the category of those hard losses.

We ask for God's blessings on your family. May you find the courage and strength to move forward in peace and confidence by remembering you do not walk alone.

In deepest sympathy.

My deepest sympathy to Heidi's family; may she rest in peace. Heaven gained a kind hearted, genuine angel. I knew Heidi roughly 20 years ago. Interestingly, in the last year I have joined a large dialysis care provider. Being so close to patients with Kidney failure, I have come to fully understand what Heidi has gone through over the years. During this year, I have thought of reaching out to her to say hello and share my thoughts, I am saddened that I did not get a chance as we all know life gets busy. I was saddened to learn of her passing. My deepest sympathy to her family and friends.
