Love you Heather, and all your lovely family. I am still learning from your graciousness. I will think of you often with a full heart and someday I'll be able to smile when I do, hopefully soon. Your laugh was the best.

I was so saddened to here of the Kohout family's loss. My thoughts and prayers pour out to Heather's family and loved ones. Our earth has lost someone who acted as the hands and feet of Christ, and our loss is Heaven's gain. God bless, LLowry

A number of people remember my time as the public services librarian at the Seminary of the Southwest as being marked by Christmas clementines. These small delicious oranges first appeared on my counter as a gift from Heather Kohout. She just dropped off a case of them -- "because they're my favorite." I recognized the perfectness of her gift and made it an annual affair. Heather was like that, a person who motivated others to make the world better. She'll be so missed.

Dear Ones,
My heart is broken. Heather was extraordinary in every way I can think of that matters….and now, there is a big hole where she was, though the wider worlds, the deeper heaven, aren't feeling the loss of her, since there, she is found…the wonderful Heather, her splendid self, her rumbling laugh, her "heretical" bigness of heart finally finding that her certainty of Love was right all along. I hope we all finally come to share that "heresy" with her.

I didn't know Heather as well as I would have like to, but I felt I knew her through being at the ranch and her home helping Lo with decorations for the Christmas parties and keeping the ranch beautiful and to her liking. I know she loved color, diversity, her family, plants, and animals! I can only imagine how her presence will always be felt in the many ways and many places she graced. She was so strong and so beautiful. Thank you for sharing her with me.

Dear family of Heather. I had heard she was ill and so saddened to hear of her passing. I met Heather in my store years ago, along with her parents Martin, and other family members. Once it felt like they were were having a family reunion there. Jessica called the girls over and said with great seriousness, "I have something to tell you." Everyone looked concerned. She said, "I have bought another house." We all breathed a sigh of relief.

So sorry to hear about your loss. I didn't know Heather well at college but clearly she was a very special person. I've been thinking about your family all day, 'holding you in the light.'
