HEATHER HEYER MEMORIAL: Hundreds Gather To Pay Tribute To Woman Killed By A White Supremacist Terrorist In Charlottesville Va. (FULL MEMORIAL & PICTURES)

Heather Heyer, a 32 year old legal assistant, joined her friends last weekend to protest the "Unite The Right" white supremacist rally in Charlottesville, Va last Saturday.

While protesting the hate groups who had amassed in her hometown Heyer was murdered when a white supremacist terrorist plowed his car into the group of anti-racist counter-protesters she and her friends were with.

On Wednesday Heyer's family, friends, supporters gathered to say goodbye to the brave woman who has become a symbol and a rallying point against the hateful ideology espoused by the very people who took her life.

At the service Susan Bro, her mother, quoted one of her daughter's Facebook posts...

My child’s famous Facebook post was, ‘If you’re not outraged, you’re not paying attention. She paid attention. She made a lot of us pay attention.
Bro went on to poignantly state...

"They tried to kill my daughter to shut her up. Well, guess what. You just magnified her."

Here is a video of the full vigil for Heater Heyer...

Here are pictures from the memorial...

Virginia Gov. Terry McAuliffe and US Sen. Tim Kaine attended the service.

Donald Trump did not attend but did tweet about it.
