Family outings, laughs, car rides to and from school, church visits and special moments shared at home are just a few of the precious memories that come to mind when I think of my grandmother Vallie Leonard. The perfect example of a loving mother, wife, grandmother and all around caregiver is the legacy she sewed into the fabric of all her grandchildren’s’ lives, and lives of all those who knew her. I will truly miss all of the special moments we have shared my whole life through, and I cannot say thank you to God enough for the blessing of having a grandmother like you grandma. Thanks to you, I understand the value in caring, sharing and loving others, which is priceless. Thank you and love always, 💗❤️

I had the pleasure of caregiving with Val and Jeanne.Two sweet ladies. I miss them both. One of fondest memories of Val was when my 9 nine old grandson said goodbye to her and she got the biggest smile on her face.Then she held his hand and thanked him for coming. R.l.P. Val.Love Jackie

I have so many wonderful memories of my Mom, How when I younger I use to watch the soap The Guiding Light with her, helping her take care of my brother I think mostly I folded his cloth diapers she used . She saw me have my children, and she saw me get married ( I’m sure she thought It’s about time!!!!) When I moved to Jacksonville my Mom and Dad would come visit me I would cry when they left . I was happy when they moved to Palm Coast it seemed like they were so close I would go for a visit and go visit my Mom’s friends and play the card game GOLF . We would also go swimming and play shuffle board. I thank God for gifting me with the best Mom and Dad in the world.I miss them both so much,I love you Mom and miss you so much you and Dad are together again watching over us❤️
