My deepest sympathy to: Heather's parents, John and Barbara, sisters, Cindy and Sandy, her longtime partner, Brian, extended family, and friends. I had the privilege of knowing Heather for 13 years. I was her client at Michael Perry's Salon and a client/friend at her salon, Lush. Heather was a unique individual. In brief, she was a smart, motivated, energetic, warm, compassionate, kind, and generous human being. Her inner and outer beauty shined.

Sending thoughts and prayers to Heather's family, friends and co-workers. I was so sorry to hear of her passing when another classmate informed me today. I graduated with Heather from middle and high school and remember when she first found the lump as a teenager. She was a great person to know and heaven has her up there without pain waiting for the rest of us when our time comes.

I began teaching at Kingwood School in 1990, so I did not know Heather, but I received news of her passing through fellow coworkers. I decided to listen to the Podcast in which Kerri Roberts interviewed Heather about a year ago. I was truly moved as I listened to Heather speak about her overwhelming obstacles as a young girl right through adulthood!. Her courage, bravery, perseverance,compassion for others, work ethic, and optimism were clearly expressed by this smart, articulate young woman. Heather's earthly life was extraordinary, and she will always be an inspiration for us all! I am so sorry for your loss. May God Bless all who knew and loved Heather. Sincerely, Carol Perlowski

Heather had a light that radiated from within. It’s as if she truly was an angel on earth. She made an impact on so many lives and will continue to do so through her spirit. Heather was one of the most caring, compassionate, funny people I knew and she will certainly be missed! Fly high with the angels my beautiful friend. We’ll never know the reason why God needed you back in Heaven with him, but I’m sure we’ll find out some day when we see you again.
