    My sincere condolences to Ms. Valerie’s family. My prayers are with you <3

  • My dearest Valerie,
    I happened to walk by your hallway today and saw your office door open. Naturally, my gaze immediately focused on your chair behind that dangling piece of plexiglass. For a brief second, I thought I saw you sitting behind your desk and look up at me. Needless to say, it hurts my heart that you will nevermore be in your office. I will miss visiting with you and talking about everything and nothing. I know Jesus was waiting for you with open arms the day you departed this earth. Enjoy His presence and His glorious kingdom; you’ve earned it. Love, Mona

    You were the last face I saw every day as I headed down the hallway to the parking lot – always a smile and a wave from your desk as I headed out. You always allowed me to ask questions to be a better mama to my baby girl, and I never will forget your tears of laughter the day I asked you – What are edges and how do I slay them? Thanks for all you did for our class and for me, you will be missed so much, but my heart is happy knowing someday I’ll
    See you again my friend.
