Heather Nicole Braaten...you are loved

    Newer Older

    Thank you for the love, prayers and support you shared and thank you for your efforts made in Heather’s search, whether it be blogging about it, handing out flyers or searching in your own neighborhoods. Unfortunately her body was found yesterday, April 1st 2012. She valued her friendships and especially the LEGO community. Her family said it was ok for me to post this image and this write up. These are all the details I know for now and I will keep you all posted as I know more.

      Oh my god... My condolences to her family and to you, if any details on how she died come out, would you mind sharing? I would like to follow this if a suspect is found.

      It seems to me that every time I check the brothers brick, someone is missing or dead.
      Rest in peace Heather. I hope there are lego bricks in heaven.

      Hey Lino, I added Jordan because I'm not sure if he saw this yet since he hasn't been on in a while. I know that him and Heather were good friends, that's why

      Rest in peace Heather. I only talked to her once, but it still hits me hard.

      Some news should just stay Fool's day jokes.

      Rest in peace, Lego Girl.
      I will never again be able to look
      at a particularly well done dollhouse
      without thinking of you.

      I haven't commented about Heather's death until now because it has taken me some time to process. I didn't know her, but we were kindred spirits. Life is not easy. For some of us it is almost unbearable. I hope that whatever tormented her in life she has found release from in death. I'm sorry you couldn't find the help you needed. I hope you are at peace now.

      I'm late but oh my god. It's just not fair. Good people die and there isn't a damn thing you can do. It really isn't until after someone dies that you really start to realize how lucky you were when she was here.

      I remember hearing about her missing around a year ago, so I came to find out what happened.
      I don't know how it is to lose someone who is really close or loved, but I can't imagine how tough it is.
      I'm really sorry for what happened, and I hope who is responsible will be brought to justice. I'm not a religious person, but if there is anything peaceful after death, I hope she finds it.
