Where ever you are, we, your son and I, want you to know that we still love you, and will always miss you. Many days are dawned with the haunting memories of how you say good bye.

"Still missing you girl."

"When tomorrow starts without me. Please try to understand that an Angel came and called my name and took me by the hand And said my place in HEAVEN was ready far above.And that i'd have to leave all that i dearly love. So when tomorrow starts without me, Don't think that we are far apart; For every time you think of me, I'm right here in your HEART"

"It has been one year since my beloved sister-in-law left us. Valerie, you are sorely missed and so very often your name is mentioned in loving memories. If there was a time-capsule available, I would surely use it and go back to correct what went wrong on that somber day. It's painful to watch the family you left behind still grieve. Your husband, my brother, suffers everyday from your passing. You were his soul mate and inspiration. We all love and miss you so much. Still cannot believe you're no longer here. I pray for my nephew Khumo that God will grant him the peace that passeth all understanding. Sleep my sister. God knew best."

"The brightest light went out on July 19th, efforts to fix it lasted until July 24th when it was finally revealed that that light will no longer be around to light up the lives of many including her son Orrett Jnr. Sisters, brothers, Nieces, nephews and myself Orrett Snr. She was my beloved wife Valarie Cleopatra. It was a terrible shock.
God in His infinite wisdom had other plans. She was going to a heavenly home to be with her mother.
My dear wife was not only a wonderful wife and mother but she was a person who loved teaching, and did so for most of her life. She was a cheerful and friendly person and made many warm friends. She loved her church and was faithful to her allotted tasks.
I close this tribute with a feeling of humility and submission to Divine authority. I know many men have wonderful wives but no one has ever had a better one than me.. She was faithful, efficient, loyal and loving. She inspired me in ways I cannot explain. I have lost a worthy companion but I have nothing but happy memories of our years together. I sorrow now for my loved one but the burden has been lessened by the many kindnesses shown me and my Son. I mention no names lest someone inadvertently be missed. My desk is covered with cards and letters extending love and sympathy. I do want you all to know how grateful I am for all you have said or done. The tribute you paid touched us deeply. I fear I cannot thank all of you personally but be assured your kindness will never be forgotten.
May Her Soul Rest In Perfect Peace."

"It's Christmas Time once again, the first without my wife Valarie, after so many years together, and her birthday too.............

When I try to take a break and relax in my busy life my heart, it does ache and all I think is how I miss my wife

It hurts me so bad all this pain inside thinking of the love we had
and the tears I have cried

I think of the places that we went to how I love you with all my heart
and all the things we didn’t get to do
but most of all how we have been torn apart

I miss you so, and love you stil, If love sould have saved you, my dear, you would have never died. I did not want to let you go
but I tell myself it was Gods will.

Every day I see things you have done, it is lonely without you.
I try to be strong for our wonderful son, but all I can do is drink another beer, and wish you were here."

"Three months ago today, one of god’s best creation
Computer crashed, her hard drive formatted,
Her operating system changed to “windows Heaven”

The woman (Valarie) we truly loved
who is now just a memory.
but a memory so precious
with Khumo & I will always stay.
It will never ease the sadness
or the pain we have come to know,
for no matter how much time
goes by,
We will always miss her,"

"Only those who have lost can tell the pains and parting without farewell. Valerie was a good friend, she loved the Lord and in her own way as best she knew how she dedicated her life to serve him. She knew the Lord as her Shepherd so when He called her roll she readily answered Yes. May her soul rest in peace as she rests with her Lord & Savior."

"MISSING YOU; You never said you are leaving, you never said goodbye. You were gone before we knew it, & only God knows why.A million times I needed you, a million times I cried. If love alone could have saved you, you never would have died.In life I loved you dearly, In death I love you still. In my hearth I hold a place, that only you alone can fill. RIP my dear wife,  your son will be OK"

"WOW, no matter what, we will never get accustomed to that thing called death. If even the person was sick, when they die it hurts. The hardest passing to experience is when it is sudden, and that person was like a shining star in your life, no hint or warning, no time to say to them for the last time that you love them. That is my plight right now,  it is hitting me like a tonne of bricks"

"We have known Valarie since her time in Botswana. Our deepest sympathy go to the family, especially Orrett and Khumo. We know that at this point in time it is difficult and may the family find comfort from God’s Word the Bible – John 5:28 and 29 which promises that the dead will be resurrected. Hope Family, Johannesburg, South Africa."

"Valarie touched the lives of so many, she was a devoted wife, mother and a friend to all. We want to remember her as we have seen her so many times over the years- apparently blissfull and peaceful. Even though we are sad we are not depressed, heartbroken, but not distressed, mournful, but filled with hope and joy knowing she is in a better place. Inserted by Husband & Son Orrett  RIP. V"
