Remembering Heather

There's those moments in life that really make us look at what we have and what really matters. We had one of those moments this week when we found out that one of our friends from the midwest tragically died in a car accident. Heather was one of the most caring and sweet people that I know. She was a daughter, wife, and mother of 2 children. Charlie, who is 2 and a half and Brennan who is five months old. She was one of those people who you talk to and you can feel that she truly cares about you. She loved her husband and little boys so much. I can't even imagine what it is like losing your mother at such a young age. I am not a "crier" but it brings tears to my eyes just writing this. I had a couple of snap shots of her and Dustin from several years ago. You can see the joy and happiness she had. I especially like the first one where my goofy husband is interrupting their dancing:-) Her funeral is today. Heather will be truly missed but I know we will see her again someday. They have setup a trust fund to support the boys so if you know them and would like to send some love here's the info:
