Albert Alvarado released the following statement Tuesday:

Heather is 35 years old.  They have three children.  She always saw the good in others.  She spent her whole life serving others in her family and community.  She and Albert loved traveling with their children and went on many trips, cruises and day trips,  too many to mention.  She was happiest when she was together with her family, especially her children and she would do ANYTHING for them.  They appreciate your many words of kindness and concern. 

An account has been opened at State Bank of Southern Utah in Heather Alvarado’s name to help the family.

The Cedar City Fire Department Ladies Auxiliary is also selling cookbooks they have made to help the family. The cookbooks are available at the fire station at 291 N 800 W in Cedar City.

Cedar City said, “Our thoughts and prayers go out to the entire Alvarado/Warino family.”
