A very special thank-you to the Hospice workers and volunteers for their loving care and support to all family and friends who kept an unending vigil with Val through her difficult journey to join our Lord. Amy, we could not have done it without you. May God always keep you safe for the wonderful work you do. Love from the family.

    Val,

    we will all miss you dearly;

    but we will keep you close

    in our hearts and think

    of all the great times

    we had together.

    We also know you are

    watching over all your

    family, friends and other

    people close to your heart.
