Hello everyone. First, the family wants to thank everyone for their prayers, support, and love through this time. I just want to tell her story and keep it as brief as possible. Our mom, wife, aunt, sister, daughter, MeMe, Cousin, and friend to MANY has been struggling with her health since last April. Recently, she lost oxygen to her brain due to her lung health for too long and we had to make the decision to remove her from life support as a family. She is no longer suffering from a condition that was never under control. Valerie has a one of a kind soul, she had a laugh that was contagious, she was an incredibly loving wife, she adored her children, she was in love with her grandson Liam, and loving and checking on her family was her LIFE. She was not only a mother to her children but a mother to her children's friends too. Valerie never knew the term give and take... it was ALL give. She would give until the cows came home and expect nothing in return. She loved to help anyone who walked in her path that needed help (and would have an hour + long conversation with that person until they were best friends). Val did not practice the term "judgement". She did not know how to judge anyone (unless they crossed her family wrong). Her family could talk to her about ANYTHING without her having any poor opinion on us or anyone involved in our story. She loved doing her crafts, cooking and cleaning for everyone, getting the whole family together, watching her Dancing with the Stars and bachelor/bachelorette, and playing/cuddling with Liam over the weekends. Valerie was the true definition of doing God's work here on Earth with her heart, hands, and soul. We all love you Mom and are going to miss you so much.We had a policy set up for my mom but something did not line up with her circumstances. I decided to turn to this so that any extra stress can be alleviated from the family, especially our Dad. Anything will help. We love everyone for all of the continued prayers and support.
