“My heart aches for Hecks and Smiths. I was extremely sad when I found out a best friend from high school passed away. We lost touch seven years ago. I wish I would have kept in touch better. I loved her very much. She was a very special-precious friend that I will always cherish in my heart! I have gotten to know her daughter, Brittany. She is just like her mother very special-precious. I know when we spoke on the phone seven years ago, she was so proud of Brittany and Brandon! She was happily married to her Danny. He is a great guy. You all will be in my thoughts and prayers! Take care and with Great Sympathy. ”
