Due to the times we live in the family is going to have a private celebration of Life. The service will be Livestreamed on Saturday March 20, 2021 at 1:00. The link to the live broadcast will be here- https://www.youtube.com/c/CatalystChurchVT
In lieu of flowers please give to Catalyst Church on Raceway, The Light Radio Network, The Vermont Right to Life, or The Guthy-Jackson Foundation (NMO). Heather would prefer balloons rather than flowers at the Church in her honor. That is just a symbol of who she is!
