    Linda, This site is fabulous! Heather was such a beautful soul in and out. As I watch my boys grow my heart struggles to know the pain and heartache ya’ll have have endured. I instill in my “young men” every day how to respect their future grilfriends. I want them to understand these are someone’s daughters, sisters and cousins. As a loving mother I owe them and their future and those they love this much!
    I hope to see you next time you visit.

She was suppose to be here for this and other things. And as you know life goes on. Our soles will always shine for Heather. Will see you in Oct. Count me in to help anyway I can. Love, Janie

    Thank you Janie. I know, I told Kristin Heather would have been so happy for her. Haven is so precious. I know you guys are going to have a ball with him! I miss her every minute of the day and hate she is missing out on so many things but I hate it more that I can’t see that beautiful smile and hug her little skinny body. Thank you also for your offer….I’m sure we’ll need you! Take care. Love, Linda

    Kristin and I have been selling alum cans since last year. Not a lot of money, but was wondering what I need to do with it. Are we in need of seed money? Tomorrow will be a ruff day for all, can only pray that you find piece in the fact that Heather was loved by so many. You are on my nine and in my heart. Don’t know you real well, but before I ever met you I knew Heather thought see had a cool Mom. She was right.

  8. lindaf says:

    Hi Janie,
    That’ so sweet of you! Thank you for doing that!! I had no idea! If you want to donate it, please ask Kristin to contact Mary Ann. Or you can still donate by PayPal on the website.
    Thanks for thinking of me and my family today. Heather loved Kristin and you too. I do miss her so.

    What a day. What a couple of years for that matter. I’ve been sad today as I’m reminded of the senselessness of 9/11 and everything it represents. Whether you mourn the loss of eight years ago or are mourning the loss of Heather it all boils down to uncontrollable ego. It makes me sick. I watch her friends grieve on Facebook. I hear the strain in her mothers voice. All we can do at this point is focus on the task at hand. Heather’s most important work is yet to come…and we are all ambassadors of her mission. Anyone and everyone that reads this blog can help. Our next big event is October 17th in Jackson at Hal & Mals. We need silent auction items, volunteers, money, prayer. Our hope is to increase our outreach significantly over last year. Please let us know if you can help. Peace.

My girls, have friends that knew Heather and she must have been an amazing gift and joy in your lives.Everyone has only said loving memories of her.

    Thank you so much for your kind message. It means so much that people who do not know us or Heather have so much compassion. Heather was the light in our lives and she is missed greatly by many. I will contact you if we need additional help at the benefit. I hope you make plans to attend so that we can continue this fight against this silent crime.
    God Bless You and Your Family.

  12. lisa berryhill says:

    Don’t you worry, we will be there. As I said I will help in any way-even clean-up. Domestic violence has occured in our family since heather,but ours ended with a trip to the hospital,bumps and cuts. Don’t you worry, this coward is being charged and I can’t wait to see him face to face.So, for all the Heathers in our lives, know that I’m here and will do ANYTHING you need. God be with you, lisa

    I remember Heather when she was little. We would play at school or in the same neighborhood(while I was visiting a friend). She was younger than me but we would all play well together. Now a really good friend lives in that house and I go over to that house a lot. I really think about her often.
    God and his love be with you always!!!!!

    Hi Linda and family. Thinking about you all. Have a wonderful New Year full of wonderful and happy memories.

  15. Janie Reeves says:

    Had you and Heather on my mine and thought I’d send you a blog. I see a ladybug, I think of Heather, I see you on facebook, I think of Heather, I look at Kristin’s wedding pictures, I think of Heather. Well I could go on and on. But I wanted you to know that she is still everywhere for me and I know for you. She was loved by so many. She will never be forgotten.

  16. Janie Reeves says:

    we have sold over 100.00 worth of alum cans,still collecting and hoping to raise more while we recycle. Have put a lady bug on a ziplock baggie and handing out to everyone I know. Asking them to fill with pennies and return. I know times are hard and money is tight, but everybody has a bag of pennies lying around.We will see how it turn out.If you need me call any time.

  17. Mary Ann says:

    Thank you for all you do Janie! We’ll see you on October 16th!!

  21. Wanda Herrington says:

    I’m getting very excited about this year’s benefit on October 22nd at Hal & Mal’s. My girlfriends from Wingfield High School class of 70 are bending over backward to donate food and items for the silent auctions. Friends are such a blessing in my life as Heather was, and still is, a blessing in all our lives! I’m looking forward to seeing everyone soon.

  22. lindaf says:

    Thank you Wanda! How exciting! We love and appreciate you and everything you do. Can’t wait to see you in October!

  23. Nolen says:

    I stumbled onto a poem you had written four years ago that was reposted on my brothers website, Jackson Jambalaya. I have to say that the article I read touched me deeply. I went further and read through some of the things on this website when I discovered the journal entry that Heather had made. Wow! Although there was a tragic ending to her life, there is peace in knowing that she is home with our Lord and Saviour Jesus Christ. That that she wrote as a letter to God is something truly special in that you can know that she was a true servant of our Lord. What a wonderful thing to know and what a wonderful thing for you to share. May the Lord anoint you and your family and may he lift you up when you are down and/or in need. Jesus said, “No one can come to the Father except through me”. Heather knew that and gave herself completely to Him. What a peace in knowing that. God bless each of you.

  24. lindaf says:

    Nolan, Thank you so much for your kind words. I do find peace knowing Heather and I will meet again one day, although it’s hard at times when I just want to hug her and see her smiling face. But her life has already made large impacts in many ways so I am thankful her story is doing good for others. God Bless you as well.
