Elegance, style and charm

Goodbye Auntie Val,

(I know you preferred ‘Valerie’ but throughout my childhood you were my Auntie Val!)

The first time I introduced my then-girlfriend Jane to the extended Bell family was at your Silver Wedding Anniversary party. You had no way of knowing how terribly nervous she was but greeted her warmly, with a big smile, a kiss on both cheeks and a compliment on her dress - chosen specially for the occasion. 

That was the snapshot that came to mind when I sat down to contribute to this collage. You were always welcoming, had a fine eye for fashion that was reflected in your own elegant style and we always felt at ease in your company. We will miss you but remember you fondly.

Vale! Valerie.
