    Russ, Holly, Heidi, Ce-Ann, Daphne: Cyril and I were both devastated to hear of Heidi’s illness and passing. Heidi was not only a co-worker for almost 30 years but a loyal and true friend. She gave support and help wherever she could, concerts, proms, celebrations and she gave her ALl. Without a doubt you knew it would be done to perfection. She was a master teacher, a strong advocate for her students, and a most active staff member, always eager to learn new techniques and take on new projects. But above all this, she was always a friend, we shared many milestones and we had many a laugh. We can only console ourselves by knowing that her suffering is over and she is at peace. Our prayers are with you all. May God give you all strength.
    Rose and Cyril

  11. I would like to wish the family and friends as well as husband Russ of Heidi Pittman my condolences. Heidi was a huge inspiration to me. She was more than just a friend, she was a mentor; someone I looked up to and inspired. I worked with Heidi and Russ for only a short time but together they impacted my life forever! Heidi always brightened up everyone’s day just being in her presence. Because you believed in me Heidi, I have followed my dreams in becoming a Teacher. I can only hope that I can make an impact on students lives the way you have impacted theirs and mine! I will miss you dearly. You will stay forever and always in my heart. Love Reanna! <3 xoxo
