So sorry to hear of Ms. Valeries passing. I had two Aunts who were her friends many years ago - Ruby Borst and Betty Spires. Aunt Ruby passed away suddenly Nov 2019 and Aunt Betty has been gone since 1996. On their behalf, I extend to her family a heartfelt sympathy.

Valerie was a dear sweet lady and I will miss the stories she shared with me on Sunday mornings. If we didn't have enough time during Meet & Greet then we would finish up after the service. She was always good for a hug and her eyes would light up when she talked about "Eric's Dad". Valerie was a real lady, a role model in perseverance and my friend. I loved her and I miss her but I know she already has someone special by her side sharing those precious stories. May God bless her family!
