    Prayers to the family and friends. I knew Heather from our boys playing baseball together. She was a friendly girl and an outstanding mother. My heart hurts for her babies.

    Please check and double check your fact before reporting lies and false accounts of the story.

    As Just Pat stated
    NO drugs and NO alchohol involved!!!
    Brandon is 34 and Heather's older brother.

    All hospital reports confirm there were NO drugs and NO alcohol involved. The cause for the accident only God knows. Brandon is actually 34, and is Heather's older brother. He is recovering and will be coming home this week. Heather was an organ and tissue donor saving and helping many lives. You can also be a donor, register at Donate Life Texas.
    You could have had the correct facts for your story if you had contacted the families instead of insinuating this may have been anything other than a tragic accident. We will happily cooperate to make sure you print a truthful and accurate story and will gladly accept your apology. I am sure you did not intend to shed a dim light on Heather but the story read that way to a grieving family. God bless. Taking the high road here.
