I am so sad to learn of Valeria's passing. Ron and I share many memories of Jim and Valeria. Times on Lake Barkley and the famous ski trip. None of us knew how to ski but we had a lot of fun trying. Valeria made me a set if ceramic napkin holders and I use them every Thanksgiving. I will treasure them even more now.
I loved her smile and laugh. She will be missed. Connie Waddell
