Family grateful for all the support
By the way, did you hear:
• We’d like to pass along the following from Tanya, Neil and Dezaray Heidelbach in the wake of the tragedy that claimed QMS student Kaitlin Heidelbach Aug. 29:
“The Heidelbach family would like to thank our closest friends Denise and Darrin Rae, Tracey De Frane and Dave Clausen and Kevin and Colleen Wheeler among many other friends and family. Our sincere appreciation to Carla with Victim Services and Kendra Van Shaik of LSS; Ladysmith RCMP, Cowichan, Ladysmith and Nanaimo Search & Rescue and citizens of Ladysmith for their quick action and tireless efforts in the search for Kaitlin. Special thanks to the community for its overwhelming support by way of donations, food, flowers, cards and emotional support. Appreciation and thanks to the faculty, staff, and students at Queen Margaret’s School for hosting the celebration of life and tea, as well as Pastor Darin Phillips and Oceanview Church. Thank you to Walmart in Duncan for their support and donating pictures. Thank you to our close neighbours and Safeway flower department. We also would like to thank the Chronicle and Lindsay Chung for their hard work in sharing Kaitlin’s story. These past weeks would have been all the more difficult without the overwhelming support from everyone.”
Meanwhile, family friend Tracey DeFrane says anyone wishing to help the Heidelbachs in a time of need with the unexpected expenses that go along with such an unexpected tragedy can send donations to the ‘Heidelbach Family’ at Ladysmith and District Credit Union 330 First Ave, PO Box 430, Ladysmith, BC, V9G 1A3 (250) 245-2247 or Toll Free: 1-888-899-2247.
