 Heidi and Family: I am saddened to learn of the loss of your beloved, Lia. At Rev. 21:3,4 we read, "And he will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away." May the sure hope of a resurrection for Lia give you solace and hope until you see Lia again. My sincere condolences to you and your family.

Many years ago I was driving Lia and Renee to school and I accidentally ran over a CHIPMUNK. Lia immediately became hysterical and wanted me to pull over and pick him up and take it to the vet. Nothing else mattered, just take it to the vet and make it better. I tell this story because that was her nature. She always rooted for the underdog and loved all animals. Her smile could light up a room and her laugh was contagious while always throwing in a little quick wit. I wish things could have been different for you. I'm going to miss you kiddo. Your other Mom💕

 I can't believe your gone. We were very young when we met but I will never forget the time we spent together. The world seems a little less brighter without you in it.

I want to convey my deepest sympathy and offer my condolence to the family. Moral support from close family and friends makes healing bearable.Comfort from God is vital for healing. God promises to give you, "Thoughts of peace, and give you hope for the future.” (Jeremiah 29:11)I pray you receive both.

 Lia (Heather)

I will never forget your beautiful smile. I remember the day we met, I had just gotten to the Phoenix house and Perter asked you if you would give me a tour of the place and from that moment on we became instant friends.

I remember going to your sisters house to meet Dreena and Hope, I don't think Trish was to happy about us being there at the time. I'm really glad I got to meet them, my heart breaks for your family's loss.

I will never forget you Heather, you will forever be in my heart

 Lia. There is no words. 
 I reached out to you when your heart was hurting from the lost of your beloved. 
You were venting your feelings on FB. Even though we haven't kept in touch after high school I reached out to you and we had such a nice conversation. A conversation from a friendship long ago. 
I was your ear and felt your pain. I wish I could of done more. 
I pray your at peace and forever happy.


Love, Andrea

Oh boy, were do I begin with the memories. I will take the route of humor. She had a good sense of humor! One day we had the brilliant idea to put on roller skates and swim in the pool on Gray Lane. Have you ever tryed to swim with skates on?

How about riding around town on that little yellow scooter? That thing only had a seat big enough for one person, but Lia, Brandy & I would take that thing everywhere (The Three Stoogies!).

Oh, another funny story. Well, not so funny at the time. Lia was hanging on to the back of my brothers car as he drove off. She started running but couldnt keep up and didnt let go. So she got drug down a gravel road on her stomach for a few feet. She had some road rash. I brought her into my house and put her in the bathtub to soak. She had some gravel stuck to her skin and we needed to clean it out. I grabbed a bottle of rubbing alcohol and poured it on her. She just about killed me. Ouch!

Probably my favorite story of all time was when we found some poison sumac out in the hills. We brought it home and rubbed it all over ourselves so we didnt have to go to school. We had some good times girl. Gonna miss you. XOXO

Dont worry, I wont share the stories about joyriding in Bob's Benz or Trish's VW. ;-)
