Dear family and friends it is with heavy hearts that we are sharing news of the untimely passing of Stefanie Vallery.

Stefanie, 49, was a loving mother and grandmother, dedicated sister and loyal friend. November 18, 2018, Stefanie was the victim of a senseless act of domestic violence. She was unfortunately unable to recover from the severity of the incident and regrettably she succuumbed to her wounds. Her daughter, Danielle Scott, sustained minor injuries and sister Danielle Scott (Arruda) is hospitalized after being critically Injured.

Stefanie took immense pride in her faith and family and will sincerely be missed by her children Natalie Scott, 32, Emanuel Lee, 30, Jeremy Lee, 29, Danielle Scott, 25, and Stefan Scott, 14. 
She also leaves behind grandkids, Gabriel Scott, 11, Madyson Scott, 9, Malachi Scott, 6, Natalia Scott, 5, Noah Scott, 2.

Danielle Scott, 5x USA Volleyball Olympian, is a selfless and inspirational woman. In her attempt to protect her sister from attack, she was critically wounded in the thigh and hands. She underwent surgery and will have a long road to full recovery ahead of her.

On behalf of the family, I am reaching out for support, with your help, to establish relief for both Stefanie and Danielle. Any contributions will help funeral costs for Stefanie as well as provide medical assistance for Danielle as she recovers from this tragic incident.

Please give what you can and share with friends to help this family in their time of need.  We certainly can’t take away the hurt, but we might be able to ease the pain during this time of healing so Danielle and her family can focus on recovery.

Thank you for your support!

Last Thursday I videoed an update that kept aborting during the upload process of the YouTube channel. Then I ended up deleting the first video ‍♀️ In short I spoke of my experience of having the three pins removed from my hands that Monday, a previous experience of sort, a pin removed from left ring finger, back in 2000 when I had broken my finger two days before the Sydney Olympic Games, followed by reading some disturbing Domestic Violence stats to bring a little awareness to what’s also known as Intimate Partner Violence. I’ve done my best to focus on staying positive and grateful during a time of grieving the loss of my sister, dealing with the horrific manner in which I witnessed her death, not being enough to do more to save her, dealing with my physical injuries (faced with just a glimpse of what the disabled go may go through with the stares and/or avoidance), all the while my sister’s killer was running “free”. An unsettling feeling, a fear of looking over my shoulder wondering if or when and where he might show up what would be the scenario. Last night Michael Vallery did appear. At the doorstep of my Nieces apartment, he turned himself in. My daughter joyfully exclaimed , “a Christmas Miracle.” Our trust is always in the Lord. His justice will be served because He is faithful and just. We celebrate all that Christ represents. I value the connection we have as sisters and brothers. And thank Jesus for dying for our sins. Don’t forget the reason for the season. Happy Holidays!

Update...Hi everyone 3 weeks since my sister was murdered and I sustained stab wounds to my left lower leg, knee and quad and both hands. While this has been a horrific experience, I am choosing to focus on the positives. Physically I am recovering well, l will have the pins removed from my hands on December 17 and off the walker somewhere there about as well. Spiritually I know Jesus is holding my family and me as we continue to trust in Him. Emotionally some days I hold it together better than others. That man is still out there texting and living life which is unsettling and frustrating. Leads have not led to much and WhatsApp a means to how he is communicating “allegedly” WhatsApp isn’t cooperating fully. The hour he is caught can’t come soon enough. Please continue to pray for us, peace, comfort and that we can get some normalcy back. I will post some stats on Domestic Violence or Intimate Partner Violence. Thanks and blessings to you. #blessed #trustingod #domesticviolenceawareness
