    My Dear Friend…..I will miss you greatly. We have been neighbors for over 40 years, sharing a semi-detached home. I always said you were my better half. lol You were like a sister to me. I could always count on you, we looked after each other especially the last 15 years. It won’t be the same any more….I will miss sitting on the front porch with you and our chats over the back fence. Who will I give that extra pie to? I love you and my heart is sorrowful. Heather was so proud of her grandchildren and never tired talking about them. Rest in peace….you will be remembered. My condolences to Vanessa and Leah, and family. Your mother loved you very much.

I have known your mom since I was thirteen on high school and then she became part of the crazy Young family. In all those years we have never had an argument or disagreement I will miss her dearly.

    Vanessa, Leah and Family: my sincere condolences to all of you, my thoughts and prayers are with you during this difficult time. Heather was a very special person to me; she worked switchboard way back at Goodhost – she in Toronto, me in Vancouver! It was such a pleasure to finally meet her face to face, and share many years working together. Her family and her animals (also family) meant the world to her. She will be sadly missed.

    Dear Lynn, Vanessa,Leah & Families.
    I am heartbroken to lose another member of Our Family.
    I am so glad I was able to retouch base with her a couple of years ago. She proved she was a Music Trivia wiz that day. I guess that now makes me the shortest member of our family ( We laughed so hard that day about me being taller ) I will miss you RIP my dear Cousin.

    Dear Vanessa, Leah and Family,
    I am so sorry for your loss. Heather was a remarkable woman who will be truly missed. I enjoyed working with her for several years before she retired. Talking about her family and the dogs always brought a spark to her eye and animation in her voice. She always spoke her mind and looked out for others.
