Heidi made it just two days into her second year of college, and then her bright young life was brutally cut short.
She had made an appointment to tell her college advisor that she wanted to start her pre-med track, and she phoned up her parents to excitedly tell them about her decision.
This would be the last phone call Heidi ever made to her family. She never made it to her appointment with her advisor.
