Four months after being diagnosed with heart/lung cancer my husband’s daughter and my stepdaughter, Heather died peacefully last night in the hospital surrounded by family and friends. A beautiful young woman living the peak of her dreams. She is missed.
She is gone now After she took her last breath we exhaled deeply bearing the pain of loss as her pain is no more Our loved ones are like trees they grow providing shelter and food for our souls and when they fall they leave an empty space in our hearts Yet in this very space is light so their seeds planted within us will flourish with the memories, stories, and lessons that they have left behind in their wake We hold our sadness close continuing our journeys as better people
In memory of Heather Ann Woltz Winfrey
July 24, 1984 – October 27, 2022
Daughter, step-daughter, wife, sister, and friend to many
