Heather Mosley Singh
Heather Mosley Singh was generous and kind and always went out of her way to make people feel seen and included. She saw the best in everyone and gave her whole heart to every person she met. She also had a gift for maintaining perspective when things got difficult; she was practicing gratitude before the rest of us knew what that meant.
Heather was also a talented percussionist and never hesitated to help the incoming freshman Redcoats to get up to speed. The Redcoats were an important part of Heather’s formative years, and even decades later, those who knew Heather through Redcoats continue to recognize what a beam of light she was in the community.

Derrick’s family would be blessed by your donation to help with funeral expenses, which are not paid by the military. If you have questions, please feel free to PM John Colegrove.
