Sad News


My friend Heather.
I wrote about her a while back here.
Heather was very vocal about her fight with colon cancer, but on August 20th, 2008, at the age of 30, she passed away. As a single mom, she worked, raised children, and became an advocate for colon cancer screenings for those that couldn't afford them. She was a beautiful person both inside and out, and her friendship has always meant a lot to me.
Our thoughts and prayers are with her family, especially Caleb and Gabby.
