Heather slipped away from us at 7:47pm yesterday evening after a long battle with liver transplant issues. An infection took over her body and we, as a family, made the decision to let her go.

We invited close friends, and relative to come and see Heather before we had her care team disconnect her life support machines. Within in minutes, Heather gracefully, and peacefully slipped away from our arms into the arms of God.

Expenses have now changed from medical and life expenses to funeral expenses in the amount of $10,356.13.

We would like to say thank you, thank you, thank you for the prayers, gifts, texts and food. You have meant more to us than anyone could ever know.

Want to help us get the word out?

We need more folks following us on the main social platforms.

But another way to help -- you can print this, and post it somewhere public. (Make sure to ask permission tho) and let the powers that be come together to help our girl get through this.

Oh Karen, I am sooo sorry. I have tears in my eyes and pain in my heart. I understand as much as I can, your fear and desperation. I am A-, I wish I could help that way. There is no bigger gift you can give someone than helping them to live. I will post this on my page and pray that someone I know, or someone that I know-knows someone who can help. I pray with all my heart for your daughter, you and your family.
