Twenty-one years ago, on Aug. 14, Heather Melissa Jay came into this world, a beautiful baby girl. We had no idea how very special you were going to be. We just loved you every day of your life, and watched you grow into an amazing young woman, one with great dreams, a kind heart, and a beautiful spirit. You were taken from our lives too soon, but your spirit lives on in the people that you knew and loved. Each and every day we carry your compassion, kindness, joy and happiness with us, and we are all a little better for having known and loved you. Happy birthday, Heather, we love and miss you so very much.
