My sincere condolences to the entire Valdez family. My memory of Mrs Valdez is knowing her to be such a sweet lady who has always shown her support to not only myself, but my entire family during our toughest times of loss of family members as well. For that I will be forever grateful. My prayers will continue for the family to find peace and comfort knowing she is with our most precious Heavenly Father in his Kingdom. Thank you Mrs Valdez for being such a strong impact on your family whom I'm sure they will be forever grateful. May God rest your soul.....
