Heidelbachs thank friends, family and community for their ‘overwhelming’ support

The family of a local teen killed in a tragic fall August 29 extends its gratitude to friends, family members and the community at large.

Editor:

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 members.

Our sincere appreciation to Carla with Victim Services, Kendra Van Shaik of LSS, the 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 of Ladysmith and other communities for their 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, and to Pastor Darin Phillips and Oceanview Church.

Thank you to Walmart in Duncan for their support and for donating pictures.

Thank you to our close neighbours and to Safeway’s 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.

The Heidelbach family Ladysmith
