As I'm sure everyone has heard by now, tragedy has struck our town. Our Heather was taken from us. My grandmother has been left with two children to take care of and a funeral to plan. Heather's two children are left motherless & fatherless. Anything that anyone can help would be greatly appreciated, as Heather was the primary income earner of the household. We have a great community, that often comes together during times like this. Thank you.

**Money raised will be going directly to Heather (Kern) Batchelor's mother & children.** (for any cost of funeral, attorney fees, & help with supporting the children) 

Her estranged husband, has been charged "felony charge of homicide/open murder, statutory and short form, which carries a maximum sentence of life in prison."
