Valerie was a devoted loyal wife and best friend to Dennis
A supportive and nurturing mum to Anthony and David
An adored and loving daughter to her mum
Compassionate and caring to all her brothers and sisters
A patient and enthusiastic craft teacher to her nieces and nephews
Witty and charming to her friends and colleagues
Valerie was a lot of things to a lot of people and we all have our own special memories to cherish.
She was a dressmaker – with a keen eye for style
A jewellery designer with a love of beautiful beads
A creator of stunningly elegant cards
A bookkeeper with a good mind for figures
A passionate and loyal Arsenal supporter
Valerie was truly talented in so many ways but none more so than her natural talent of being such a beautiful, funny, warm hearted lady who has touched so many hearts.
We have been blessed to be part of your life Valerie Ann
Please dry all your tears, I know you miss me so,
If it had been up to me, I'd never have chosen to go.
I know you all miss me, and it's painful but it's true
I wish I could have stayed on earth, and lived down there with you.
Please find a way to celebrate, even if you cry
Send me up some big balloons, soaring through the sky.
I love you all everyday, I send you kisses too
One day you'll all join me, then I'll always be with you.
Until then remember me,
I miss you everyday.
We all miss her so very very much and life just is not going to be the same without you Aunty Val. I know you are going to be looking down on us making sure we don't get into trouble but we all wish you were here with us.
We miss you so so so much and hope you are being well looked after now.
I love you very much
all my love now and forever
