Mourning a Loss

September 26, 2011

For those of you who followed along with us on our 2010 race, I am deeply saddened to share the passing of my good friend and racing partner, Heather.

Heather experienced a brain bleed several weeks ago and though the Dr.’s made many attempts to reduce the swelling on her brain, they were unable to win the battle. Heather slipped into a coma on Saturday, September 24th and passed away in the early morning hours on Sunday, September 25th. Her husband, Leon, sister, Jennifer and friends, April and I were at her side.

We were blessed to have known her and are better people for it.

    Sandi: My thoughts and prayers are with you and Heather’s family and friends. How lucky you were to have competed in the race with Heather! What wonderful memories you will have to keep and share with her family and friends.
    I remember being at the Frederick Airport just after you and Heather landed and getting to meet her at that time. What a lovely person ! You were both so happy and pumped up to have finished the race. What an accomplishment for you both !
