CNY Mom Donates Coffee & Positive Notes Just Days After Losing Her Son
For a mourning heart, this mother is looking to share her sons love in any way she can.
It is not easy for anyone to lose someone they love. This is especially true when they are taken far too soon, when they have so much more life to give and live.
Heather Niver is a mother with a heart bigger than anyone you've ever met. Her son is Brady River, who was involved in the tragic car accident with his girlfriend, Rylee Bartlett, on April 30. The two families lost Rylee the day it happened, while Brady passed away 8 days later at Upstate Hospital in Syracuse.
The two students and their families have received an overwhelming amount of support from not only the Fulton community, but all across Central and Upstate New York. As a well known wrestler in the region, many people were sharing his mothers message...
Be KIND, Be STRONG, Be DETERMINED, Be a CHAMPION... #bradystrong
Though she lost her son, Heather is doing everything she can to keep Brady's soul and mission alive. One of her most recent selfless acts has gone viral in Central New York.
Dunkin Donuts is #BradyStrong
According to a Dunkin employee, Heather recently made a stop at the Dunkin Donuts in Fulton on Mother's Day. After making her order, she asked one of the baristas for a pack of sticky notes on a pen. She then gave the cashier $140 to pay for everyone's coffees who came after her.
On each drink was a blue sticky note with her son's message.
The original post sharing Heather's initiative has garnered almost 2K shares on Facebook, with people still paying it forward for Brady. The movement has touched so many people, inspiring them to spread kindness in any way they can.
Death is so awful, but the way these teens have brought this community together will never be forgotten
It is nearly impossible to imagine what Heather, along with hers and Rylee's family, are going through. But to know their loss will always be remembered and has inspired so much good in the community, must help with their healing.
