To the family of our beloved Heidi Smith, Even though we are saddened by the passing of our sweet Heidi, we all know for certain she is with our Lord & Savior!
She always said, "I am blessed", when she came through the shop. All the people she blessed in her short life, cannot be measured. I know my life was enriched by her at work. Such a precious smile! Thank you Jesus, she has her final healing.
She is praising God forever now. God bless you all, Diana Smith

Dearest Heidi.... you were one of my oldest and dearest friends. You had such a huge impact on my faith journey as a young (12 year old) child. We had so much fun our 6th grade year, in Gunnison, playing in the snow, snowmobiling, driving around the ranch, telling each other our secrets, talking about the boys we had crushes on, trying to stay away from your "annoying" little brother. You have touched so many lives in so many ways. Your love for Christ was evident in everything you did. I continue to be in awe of your faith. My faith in stronger because of you.
To Heidi's family, I am so deeply sorry for your loss. She was an amazing person. She will be missed. Sending you all love from Colorado. I think of you often.

Heidi and her Mother Bobbie were apart of the same Church in Dumas. Our lives are richer for knowing Heidi and Heaven is richer now that Heidi is with her lord that she loved so much.
