Heather wasn't just more than just a general manager to me. She was a second mother, a great leader, the most kind hearted woman, caring, sweet, taught me almost everything that i need to know at the workplace. We started to grow very very close towards the end and once everything started to happen i prayed and prayed that she would make it through it, we all did, i loved her like my own mother, she was a mentor, a friend, and always there to talk or help when i needed her the most. she is always going to be in my mind and heart and i will never forget her sweet and funny words to make us all smile. i miss her most terribly and it is very hard without her right now... but now you're up there in heaven my little angel. i love and miss you dearly and i can always feel when you're with me and trying to make me feel better. i'll be up there with you soon one day hunny... with much love, always and forever heather. you meant more to me than you will ever know hun<3 i love you. you're keeping me going day by day... never forget that...-Jorgie Elizabeth Martin<3 xoxoxoxoxox
