Dear Len and Josh,

We had the pleasure of meeting Heather for a brief period recently and she came across as being a warm, loving, caring and sincere person who enjoyed life. We have very fond memories of the time our two families came together for Josh and Dion’s wedding and thank God for giving Heather the opportunity to celebrate Josh and Dion’s marriage with all of us.

We know you are a loving family and losing Heather is very sad. We ask for God’s blessings on both of you so you may experience His peace and find strength and comfort in knowing that Heather will suffer no more but enjoy eternal rest in her heavenly abode. We understand that you are celebrating her life and that is very fitting for the beautiful person Heather was and the legacy she leaves behind. Our thoughts and prayers are with you and all the other members of your family. May Heather’s soul Rest in Peace.
