I am so very sorry to hear this about Heather we so loved the Rebecca family we were neighbors on Kennedy Rd for over 30 years. Went to James and Heathers wedding Her daddy Joe was so proud that she found happiness in James. She dearly loved her two boys posting many wonderful memories of them growing up. I will always cherish our memories of her growing up and my hubby Chuck's nickname for her was rug rat with all her curly hair he loved teasing her, sadly I lost him this past August. All my love and prayers to James and the boys and the Rebecca family. May you rest in peace Heather♡♡

Heather will be greatly missed by students and staff at Ridgeview Middle School. She is one of the kindest, most generous human beings I have ever known. She always put others before her- helping students, supporting coworkers, providing comfort to those around her, encouraging hope and support. She will be greatly missed but her spirit will provide comfort to those she left behind. She always spoke about her loving family and son. I hope they find comfort in knowing she positively influenced everyone she encountered. It has been a privilege and honor to have known Heather.
