In Memory of Heather

My niece Heather passed away suddenly at the age of 22 from a massive stroke. Her doctors were not able to determine the cause. However, Heather left a legacy behind in her gift of organ donation. Within hours of her death, she had saved the lives of 7 people. Many more lives will be touched in the weeks to come.

Heather was completing her externship as a medical assistant. It was a career she was passionate about. Heather was a bubbly, animated person and found fun in many things in life.

Heather, we miss you more than we can say. You left this world much too soon, but you left behind lots of happy memories, love, and joy. One day we will see you again when it is our turn to leave this world and join you  in heaven.

Love you bunches,
Aunt Susan

Susan, what a beautiful girl Heather was. The insight her gifts of organ donation has made will be reverberated through so many lives. I am so sorry for your loss, God really does take the best at a young age. Thinking of you through this difficult time.

My heart felt sympathy, Susan
Susan my prayers are with you and your family through this loss of Heather, and my prayers are with the families that she has touched with her unselfish gift of being an organ donor. You may never know the true amount of good that has come from those Heather touched with her brief journey here on earth - but God knows and He will comfort your family in this time of separation Love to you, karen O in TX
