I’m so sorry for your loss Rodney. I worked with Heather, she was a wonderful person to work with. She loved you dearly, her family and her animals. May the memories once shared bring you joy and laughter, and may the promises found in God’s inspired Word bring you comfort and hope during this difficult time. Revelation 21:3,4.
