  • Jeff, Lilly & Lena we are very sorry to hear about Heather, your wife and mom. I remember dropping Hayley off to spend the night at your house for Lily’s Birthday a few years ago. Surprisingly, Hayley had packed half her room to share with the other girls. When I returned the next morning to pick her up the picture of Heather graciously and patiently holding bags on her arms and a stuffed animal under her chin while Hayley was making trips in and out of the garage getting all her stuff was just too funny. Praying for God’s strength and those precious memories to get you through the difficult days ahead.
