"Hi balerie I called her that sometimes Valerie was my elder sister but in a lot of cases she was like my mom.the last night I saw my sister My mother had dropped off food for me to pick up at her house it was bout 8:30 pm when i came  through the door to get my groceries she was on the bed with her grandchildren I gave her a quick hug and kiss and told her I'd see her in the morning and that I loved her she told me I look very nice because I just came from a church function. Now to me she seemed fine she was smiling she seemed like she felt well and she was actually setting up. So I took my groceries and went home happy that I had seen my sisters and she was OK. That was the last time I ever saw her morning mom shows up at my door seems upset told me I need to sit down and she breaks the news that my sister is dead it had only been less than eight hours since I seen her . I still dont be leave shes gone. I miss you balerie love your baby brother"

"Thank you Lord, for the quiet moment of thoughts of a dear and sweet friend.  A friendship beginning as girls and never fading through weddings, babies, distance, illness and even death, a friendship that will continue into eternity as we join hands again one day to worship our King together, forever.  There is joy knowing that you are dancing in the heavens, singing for all to hear and cheering us on to keep the faith.  Love ya dear friend.  Thank you for being a part of my cloud of witness, your cheers strengthening my steps."

"Thinking of you on your 52nd BD Brat Girl. I just wonder how much fun God lets you have up there? Between you and your Papa you probably spend more time out in your corners than anywhere. The two of you were quite a pair. I miss you Honey so much my eyes still leak and my heart is not as happy as it should be, quite a week down here. Were you peeking in when your Baby Girl had had her baby boy? You now have 6 yes 6 grands. Tanee' just had little William David on Tuesday and thank God he's well. I miss you everyday and my heart will never feel quite as full as it is supposed to. Hope you have a wonderful day there, pain free and able to walk, sit and whatever you want to do. Happy Birthday Brat Girl love you past the moon and stars and back and all the way to Heaven. Mommy"

"Dearest Brat Girl,
As Valentine's Day approaches and I think of you I am filled with thoughts of what a kind, caring, loving person you were. Always remembering others with cards and a gift. Mommy could always depend on my first Valentine was from my Brat. To others who don't know our family, everyone had a nickname from childhood. You were such a precocious little girl, that you were and always retained the name of Brat Girl, said with much love and sometimes laughter at the things you thought up to do. Sometimes said with irritation at the things you did, but always with LOVE! So here is your Valentine flower, I found some old cards from you and made me sad and happy at same time as I read your feelings you expressed. So much like your Mom, being an emotional person with your feelings toward family and loved ones, yet so strong and staid when it came to sharing your feelings with others about your pain and suffering. About right now I could use support from my ROCK! As I listen to the music on this page, "GONE TO SOON" I am holding back tears as yes for me you are gone to soon and for many others who loved you. We don't have a say in that, only God determines when our story here ends. I know you are among loved ones there also and friends but we still miss your bright welcoming smile and hugs. Always loving you,

I miss you everyday but I am so glad you are whole and no pain now. So when Ia find something or see something that reminds me of you it makes my heart SMILE to quote you.

"Valarie was such an inspiration to my son, Danny.  He loved her and told me many time what a brave and wonderful young lady and how she suffered. As it turned out, God called Danny first, so I only pray they are now together."
