We are so sorry for your loss. May the God of all comfort, Jehovah, look after you during this most difficult time. In the book of Revelation 21:3,4 there is a beautiful promise he gives where he says that soon will come a time when death, mourning, and tears will be no more. May thoughts and scriptures like this be of comfort to you during this most difficult time.

I was so sorry to hear about Val's passing. Too soon. Tiffani, I remember all sorts of laughter and fun when I visited your house. She was so full of life and I loved her fire! And for some reason green mashed potatoes on St. Paddy's Day popped to mind. :) Sending you all hugs and may your memories of her bring you joy. Kristi

There are so many great memories growing up with Val, Gwen and Herb. They are family to me and my brothers. God took Val too soon from us. Prays and thoughts are there with Val's family.

I was sad to hear of Val's passing. Brita my Giant Schnauzer & I got to know her from doing Pet Therapy visits to her on 2nd floor. I was just thinking of her last week, and perhaps that's when she crossed over. Cherish the love and good memories she gave you.
