Grandma, you have taught me, nurtured me, spoiled me, and respected me. Because of all those things I will be forever grateful to you. Heaven gained the best card player I've ever known. The best thing I can say though is that you were a better Grandma than you were a card player (even though you won most the time). I will miss you dearly.

Love, Robert

Thank you "Aunt" Val for being so wonderful to my Aunt Kathy and the Girls. I'm so greatful our families crossed over often enough to see you. It was always so nice to catch up. Your smile warmed our hearts. May God hold you in the palm of His hands.

Dear Aunt Val you will be missed. You were always there as not only an aunt but filled the shoes of mom after she passed. A great loss to us all!

So very sad to hear of Val's passing. We were friends for many years in our Euchre club. Val was always a caring and good friend to me. I will miss her dearly.
