her Life

Val as a bright light...

Val journeyed through life living and loving deeply.  Her enthusiastic energy was infectious in our family and indeed to so many that she touched. 

From our very earliest memories of her, life with Val was filled with adventure. We learned from her how to live well and appreciate the wonder around us.

As you are navigating through her memorial site, please enjoy the background music as performed by one of Val's favorite artists, Eva Cassidy.   Eva was from Val's home town of Bowie, Maryland, and also lost her life to cancer in 1996.  We hope your experience here brings you closer to our precious Val.
