    Words can’t express how badly I feel for you and your family. I don’t think anyone can say the right things right now to ease the pain. Just know there are a lot of people that would love to. Big Hugs Judy

    My thoughts and prayers go out to Karley and family. Your mom was amazing from taking us on choir field trips in the red station wagon to the time at the lake. Riley and Victoria still talk about the nice lady with the cookies and yogurt anytime we drive past. If you need anything please call.

  5. Dear Keith, Karly, Kristen, Jeffrey and family, words seem so inadequate to express the sorrow of such a loss. Know that my thoughts and prayers are with you. Asking people to wear purple is perfect! With love and heartfelt sympathy…

    Keith, Kristen, Karly & Jeff.
    All of you hold a special place in my heart. You always have and always will. The reason is simple, because you are her ‘Tribe.’ Part of our hearts went with her, but she still hears us… Hebrews 12:1 Val is the dearest closest friend I will ever know, this side of heaven. Each one of you are a beautiful testament to her love and how she lived her life.
    Love Lynda and family.

    Dear Keith and family

    We wanted to let you know how sorry we are to hear of Val’s passing.

    There is nothing more difficult in life than saying goodbye to the ones we love and cherish so dearly!

    The physical absence of our loved ones is very painful but the love that was always shared can never be too far away!

    It is in those memories that we find the strength we need to survive the grief and pain.

    Our thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

    With deepest sympathy

  20. We were all shocked and saddened to hear of your loss. Although our lives intertwined in various ways over the years Kristin and Julia, experiences at Midlands, encounters on the golf course, my strongest memories of Val revolve around music and the joy she drew from it. I can fondly recall her playing at church, our shared experiences with piano purchases, her love of teaching music and the sheer guts it takes to return to the discipline of music lessons as an adult. How lovely she found something that nourished her in so many ways. Please accept our condolences.
    Pat, Rein, Julia and Elizabeth Saar

    For Keith…
    Val,
    Three weeks at Hippocrates was more than enough to make you unforgettable; and for us to see your wonderful, warm, gentle nature radiating.
    Until now, it has been impossible for me to accept the loss of your beautiful personality… But today, Easter Sunday, it became obvious that this is no loss, but only a temporary separation; for the moment, you are out of sight.
    So, while you pray for us down here, and until we all meet again, when time no longer exists,
    VERY, VERY BIG HIPPOCRATES HUGS!!!
