Heyer’s father remembered her passion and desire to always stand up.

“She loved people, she wanted equality, and, in this issue on the day of her passing, she wanted to put down hate,” her father recalled. “And for my part, we just need to stop all this stuff and forgive each other. I think that’s what the Lord would want us to do.”

Heyer’s mother proclaimed that her memory would live on.

“They tried to kill my child to shut her up,” said Bro. “Well guess what? You just magnified her.”

Heyer passed away after James Alex Fields, Jr. allegedly drove his vehicle through a crowd of counter-protesters at the rally.
