Heidi was not just my grandmother. She was my best friend, my partner in crime, and my role model. She was a creative, caring, passionate, strong-willed, and lively woman. I will always remember how easily and unconditionally she loved people. She did not make acquaintances, she added to her family. There was never a dull moment with Heidi around, and it remained that way through her final moments. Her last days at home were filled with difficult goodbyes, but also laughter, story-telling, and of course - food. I can't imagine her wanting it any other way.

To all those who emailed their well wishes and kind words:  Thank you. It meant so much to our family and Heidi to hear your stories. We took turns reading them aloud in her final hours.
