Artist from Chesapeake creates mural honoring Heather Heyer

Victim Killed at Virginia Rally Identified as 32-Year-Old Paralegal: 'She Died Doing What Was Right'

"You poke that finger at yourself like Heather would have done and you make it happen", she says.

A memorial service for Heather Heyer is scheduled Wednesday morning at a downtown Charlottesville theater. "And this issue of the day of her passing she wanted to put down hate", her father, Mark Heyer, said. "That's how you make her death worthwhile", she said.

"She died trying to bring about that objective", he told CNN on Sunday. White supremacists had threatened to attend, but none appeared to be at the site.

Heyer's grandfather, Elwood Shrader, said she always wanted fairness, even from a young age, and was quick to call out something that wasn't right. "She will be long remembered by all!"

The Saturday crash that killed Heather Heyer took place at a Unite the Right rally spurred by Charlottesville's plan to remove a Confederate statue from a local park. They were met with hundreds of counterprotesters, which led to street brawls and violent clashes.

Authorities forced the crowd to disperse, and groups then began roaming through town. The Antifa protesters said they came out because the "police won't protect the people".




Video footage shows the auto reversing and hitting more people.

Dozens of other demonstrators were injured when OH white nationalist James Fields Jr, 20, drove his auto into the peaceful march on Saturday. "I could have said, 'Let's don't do this publically, let's have a small private funeral.' But that's not who Heather was". "But by golly if I have to give her up, we're going to make it count". "There's several people that I know who knew her", Welty said. Well, guess what: "you just magnified her".

Mr Trump tweeted about Ms Heyer on Wednesday, saying she was "beautiful and incredible" and a "truly special woman".

Heyer's family members and friends said her death would only inspire them to fight harder for justice.

The Paramount Theatre said it had made arrangements for overflow attendees to view the service through a live stream. Her comments echoed a growing sentiment for healing after Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe declared a state of emergency.
