    Well Done Heather!

    I know for certain that Dr. Cyril and Sharon are extremely proud of all three of their Moyse-kateers
    - Heidi, Walter and Heather, not only for their athletic achievements but their career choices as well.
    And having first met all three of their kids when they were teens, they have a right to be. They have done very, very well. Give Dad and Momma Moyse full credit for being excellent role models as parents.
    Heather had boundless energy as a teen, and continues to display that trait. That certainly translated into her becoming a world class athlete.
    Count me in too, Heather, as being extremely proud of you for your recent Olympic gold medal accomplishment. I will shamelessly admit that I got a little misty-eyed when you were on the podium.
    Enjoy your big day in Summerside Friday.

    Big Hugs from your old Sunday School teacher ,

    That was a great comment Bill, well done and she is such an inspiration to us Islanders way to Go Heather you deserve a big huge party. There should be something more than just having something at the CUP for you, but I guess our city is too small and cheap for that.....
