Heather was a beautiful, amazing person. Her silliness and smile were contagious. If Heather was around, you knew there would be fun and laughter. She had a free spirit and always tried to see the good in people. To say that we are devastated is an understatement. There will not be a day that we don't think of her and miss her, until we are also called home. Get some rest now sweet sister. We are not saying goodbye, we are saying see you later for now.
She leaves behind three of the most amazingly, beautiful little girls; Aunica (14), Ariyana (2), and Aniya (1), nieces and nephews that loved her so much; Marcus, Jacob, Allison, Angelica, Alyssa, Joseph, Anthony, Emma, Logan, Jessica, Jackie, and several other little nieces. She is also survived by eight and a half siblings and their partners; Zenon (Angel), Devin (Joe), Benjamin (Ashleigh), Phanessa, Bubba (Lisa), Brianne (Alex), Steven, Jesse, and Krystal (Steven) who is actually a cousin but more like a sister. Let's not forget Mike Jones (who?). Honorary mention to Brandy who grew up close to Heather and the family, as well as Krystal, Cynthia, and Big Red who were the soul sisters of her life. Also left behind is Shirley Murrah (Grandma), Bruce (StepDad), Ray (special father figure), and lastly, her mother Dawn Samo who was her savior. Heather loved her mother down to the deepest part of her soul and knows that she would move the stars for her.
Heather is proceeded in death by her father Leman "Bud" Hydrick; her Godmother Sandra King; Aunt Pamela Murrah; and Uncle James Murrah.
