    I am so sorry for the family’s loss. I never knew Heather but I am sure she was an amazing young woman. I am a cousin to her grandma Mazie Lacy. I wish I could offer some comforting words but I know at a time like this there just aren’t any. Love and hugs to all.

  10. Norma Richards says:

    So very sorry for your loss. My deepest condolences to Mazie and family.

  11. Amanda Wuchich says:

    Saying I’m deeply sorry for your loss just doesn’t even express the magnitude of hurt I feel for you and your family. I have known Heather more than half of my life and no matter the miles between us at times, I have always loved her like a sister. All of my best teenage memories have Heather in them. I want so much more than anything to be there today, but I myself have a fever and am waiting the results of a covid test. You guys all have my love and support and if there’s ever anything I can ever do please do not hesitate to ask.

  13. Lindsay Beatty says:

    I am so very sorry to hear of Heather’s passing! I went to school with her since 7th grade. SHS and PCTC. She always had a great personality and a smile on her face! She was a beautiful person! I have many memories of her. Losing a mother would be the hardest thing in life! I give the greatest sympathy to her daughters! I’m sure Heather loved them dearly! This is shocking and I just heard the news this morning, or else I would have attended the service to say goodbye to an old friend! Fly high Heather!

  14. Duane & Karen Frankart says:
