I am so very sorry for your loss. I still remember Christy's interview at AAA. She had so much energy, joy and volume. You never had to ask Christy to speak up. I always enjoyed hearing whether she got to take her kayak out over the weekend or went camping with her family. The love she had for her family and friends was apparent. She brought joy to so many people's lives and will be greatly missed.

She had a true gift that she gave to the world. She was simply herself and that is very rare. I only hope that in your darkest hour you can see the beauty you were able to spread by helping her grow.

Jim and Linda, reading through these notes shows how much Christy was loved and will be missed. She was so full of life, passionate about her family and friends, and devoted to her dogs. She was strong and bold and had more love than can be expressed with words. My heart breaks knowing her niece and nephews won't get to grow up with her encouraging love and support. The love I've seen you express with each other will help you through this terrible tragedy. I Love all you Heuer's.

My heart hurts for the family and friends of Christy. I never knew her to know a stranger. We met many years ago throwing darts, where we’d soon learn we had common ties to Clinton County. We’d share walks and talks on the dam of Carlyle Lake when Christy was in town. I’ll sure miss her beautiful photos in all her happy places. I hope you all find strength in all the great memories and stories you’ll hear over the coming weeks. My thoughts and prayers are with you all.
