I was so sad to hear of Heidi's death. I remember when she was born and I watched her grow up, as a playmate and friend to Anna and Tom. Anna used to show me pictures of her great grandchildren with pride. Those children have lost their mother too soon. My condolences to Kathy through this horrible time. I will keep you and your family in my prayers. God bless.
