Memories

I have so many fond memories of Heidi and her family. I baled hay at their farm and helped milk the cows with Harold playing his guitar and singing to Heidi, the cows and I! We would ride Heidi's horse and laugh the entire time because the horse trotted so funny it tickled, everyone seeing us probably thought we were nuts! Heidi would come to my house riding her little Honda mini bike and we would go to other friends homes and all over on that bike. We dated together, cried over lost love, married guys that were friends, got pregnant at the same time and went to all of our doctors app. together, our sons were born a couple of weeks apart. Heidi even managed to talk me into being in her wedding when I was 8 months pregnant, boy did I look cute in that dress !! I do not have one sad memory of time spent with Heidi, and I will miss her very much. Heidi was always a great friend and always did for others, never thinking of herself. I'am so sad to lose such a wonderful friend. My thoughts and prayers go out to Heidi's family. Sincerly, Janet Burmeister
