I remember Heath being born and coming to visit grandma and grandpa across the street from me..on Main St. He was a sweet boy and grew into a nice young man. My heart breaks for you all with his passing. Im sure the reunion in Heaven with his dad and grandma and grandpa was a sight to behold. ❤

My sweet boy. I will miss you so much. I promise to always do things for Olivia and will try to help your family get through this. I loved you from the day you were born and will look forward to holding you in my arms again in Heaven. We had some good times, didn't we? Remember when I dared you to eat a whole bowl of peas for $5.00? You did it too. Of course, when you were little, I told you that the furnace hole on the floor went all the way to China. We had lots of good times pretending we were going to slide down to China. I am thankful you are no longer in pain, and so happy that you gave us Olivia as your legacy. I am so proud of the man you were and the angel you are now. Love, Aunt Sheri
