Marguerite & Billy,We were so sorry to hear about your mother's passing. I remember how much she loved her family and enjoyed her wonderful life in Thunderbolt. She was an exceptional cook. Mr. & Mrs. H liked eating bacon wrapped filet mignons, Sunday afternoon roast and Chicago style deep dish pizza. They especially enjoyed boating trips to Warsaw Island to watch turtles hatch and being involved in local politics. She was such a good person. I will never forget how all the family always treated me with special kindness. Kirby and I send our thoughts and prayers to all who loved and cared for Mrs. Heitmann. We know how much you will miss her. Blessings always, Cheryl & Kirby

Cousins Marguerite and Billy: We are so sorry for you loss. I have wonderful memories of our family visits with Aunt Irma and Uncle Willie. Mostly I remember laughter... especially when Uncle Willie would be driving and Aunt Irma would be sitting in the back also driving. Thinking of you the Howe family.

Grew up knowing Vaughn & his family. My family purchased our gasoline from the family station ion US Hwy 17. Reconnected with him 2005 when my Mother passed away planning her arrangements at Forest Lawn. He was a professional and very kind at a difficult time for me. I will always be thankful for his friendship.
