Valerie Junius, Domestic violence victim

On 07/29/21, my Auntie, Gloria, was on the phone with her daughter, Valerie, while she could overhear her husband, Lawrence Reed, telling Valerie that he was going to kill her and her kids. Gloria then had the horrific experience of having to hear Lawrence shoot her daughter Valerie a total of 7 times, ultimately taking her life. Lawrence Reed then shot her son, who is 16 years old and her daughter who is 20 years old as they tried to flee and run out of the house. By the grace of God they are both going to survive. No mother should ever have to endure the pain and heartache of listening to their child be murdered while on the phone with her. We are left speechless and in shock. Valerie was a mother to six children ranging in age from 20 years old to 4 years old, along with one grandchild. Valerie worked hard to help all of her children.

Gloria (grandma) is now left to raise her daughter’s five children under the age of 18 years old. The day after Valerie was murdered by her husband, Lawrence Reed, his family members had the audacity to go to Valerie’s house and steal all of her valuable possessions, along with stealing money directly out of her purse and stealing her car. Let’s try to please support and help Gloria bury her daughter in peace along with trying to help ease the burden of now raising five children. Thank you in advance for your kindness and generosity. They say that it takes a village to raise a child. We are reaching out to the community in hopes of getting Gloria and the children some help. God bless you all. Please pray for Valerie in heaven, her children left here on Earth, along with her mother, Gloria.
