Happy Birthday Haleigh Cummings!

On August 17, 2011 Haleigh Cummings would have celebrated her 8th birthday!

In loving memory her mother, Crystal Sheffield, and other local supporters gathered in the center of Downtown Palatka encouraging anyone and everyone to pull over and release a balloon in honor of sweet Haleigh's 8th Birthday.

Later that evening Haleigh sent a sign from above that she appreciated the birthday balloons, with a colorful rainbow.
