I'm so sorry to hear about Val.
She was one of the nicest people I've ever known. We worked together a long time ago at Big Wheel. I remember she had a unique sense of style all her own and she was fun to work with. I considered her a friend.
Please accept my condolences for your loss.

I am so sorry for your loss. Did she work at Fisher Big Wheel back around 1984? I worked with a Val back then and had a lot of fun working with her!

Connie and family,
I am so sorry about your loss no words can express this terrible loss. Only remember she is not in pain but in the arms of the Lord with her dad. I can remember many fun times we had when we were younger. Sending our thoughts and prayer to your family.
