Heather shared a series of pictures of her children playing with Naya's little boy Josey on Instagram.

She captioned the post, 'We started out as the closest friends and then like all new things, we went through a bit of a rocky phase.'

'However, we stuck by each other’s side and created the most beautiful friendship built out of love and understanding.'

The actress continued, 'The last I had the chance to see you in person, I had left oranges outside our home for you to take.'

'I wanted to say hi through the window but my phone didn’t ring when you called (which it never does, f*cking T-Mobile), so instead you and Josey left two succulents on our doorstep as a thank you.'

'I planted those succulents and I look at them everyday and think of you.'

Heather wrote that she listens to Naya's EP on repeat, 'because from the moment I heard it, it struck me...'

She said she wishes the world knew more of her friend's incredibly talented voice.

The 33-year-old recalled the many Snapchat videos she received from Naya and Josey in the mornings.

'I kick myself that I didn’t save one of them.'

'We vowed to spend every Easter together...'

She continued, 'You always shared recipes and I admired your love for food.'

'We vowed to spend every Easter together, even though Covid stole this last one from us.'

'You are and always will be the strongest and most resilient human being I know, and I vowed to carry that with me as I continue to live my life,' Heather wrote.

'You constantly taught me lessons about grief, about beauty and poise, about being strong, resilient and about not giving a f**k (but still somehow respectful ).'

'Yet, the utmost important lesson I learned most of all from you was being a consistent and loving friend.'

'You were the first to check in, the first to ask questions, the first to listen..you cherished our friendship and I never took that for granted.'

Heather said she decided to share pictures of their children because they remind her of their friendship.

'I have countless pictures of our babies playing, because we shared that kind of pride and joy.'

She finished, 'I speak to you everyday because I know you’re still with me and even though I’m feeling greedy that we don’t get more time together, I cherish every moment we had and hold it close to my heart.'
