To know her was an honor. She was such a wonderful friend to me and my mother. I truly enjoyed my time talking to her and appreciated her friendship to my mother.

Uncle Jay and Little Johnny, I am so sorry for your loss. Though we did not see Aunt Val often we always kept her in our hearts.

Lots of Love,

Michelle and Hayden

God’s Garden

God looked around his garden

And he found an empty place.

And then He looked down upon the earth,

And he saw your tired face.

He put his arms around you,

And lifted you to rest.

God’s garden must be beautiful,

He always takes the best.

He knew that you were suffering,

He knew you were in pain,

He knew that you would never

Get well on earth again.

He saw the road was getting rough,

And the hills were hard to climb.

So He closed your eyelids,

And whispered “Peace be thine.”

It broke our hearts to lose you.

But you didn’t go alone,

For part of us went with you,

The day God called you home.
