    I am so saddened to hear of Heidi's passing. I worked with her for many years at Brooksby Village. We shared many laughs and she was a caring, loving nurse. I'm thinking of her children and grandchildren and sending love as well as prayers. Kristine Mucci

    My sympathies to Heidi's family

    I knew Heidi as a Coworker at Brooksby Village when she was a Nursing Aid and going to school become a nurse. This is when I found out she was married to a distant relative, Brian. I then met her again at Kindred when she was a nurse. I remember her being a soft spoken, kind and caring person. May her memory be eternal.

    Such an unselfish, kind and caring Mom, sister, coworker and Grandmother. You were taken too soon from us, but none of us wanted you to suffer. You never really got the chance to let this ugly disease know just who you were and the stubborn side of you. May you rest in peace. I hope you are enjoying your time with Mom, Dad, Ken, Brian and Buster. Until we meet again, and I know we will, know that I love you and will always be there for your "babies" Brandon, Ari and Liv. Miss you.
