I have many fond memories of floating down the Ocmulgee River with Val and Lisa Matthews, talking and laughing all the way.
I had the pleasure of working with Val for the Social Security Administration. Nobody had the knowledge of the laws and computations like Val did. She was always helpful and kind to the public and her coworkers. I had hoped to see Val again and I’m heartbroken that she is gone. She loved her boys. She loved this country and was proud of her service. We will miss you Val💕
