I just found out about our beautiful sister. Veggy, you will be missed so much. Thanks for the PM and the link to this tribute Granny. I loved the beautiful pictures of you and Veggy together with Allyson. OMG, I am still in shock. I feel sick that I found out so late.

My condolences to all of Valerie's friends and family. She was and still is a beautiful angel. So young...so lovely.

Veggy, you will be so missed. xo

TO OUR VEGGY....

GOD SAW YOU GETTING TIRED, AND A CURE WAS NOT TO BE, SO HE PUT HIS ARMS AROUND YOU, AND SAID "PLEASE COME TO ME"

A GOLDEN HEART STOPPED BEATING, HARD WORKING HANDS TO REST.....GOD BROKE OUR HEARTS THAT DAY TO PROVE HE ONLY TAKES THE BEST

TAKE HER IN YOUR ARMS LORD....TREASURE HER WITH CARE.......MAKE UP FOR ALL SHE SUFFERED.....AND ALL THAT WAS UNFAIR...

TO SOME SHE'LL BE FORGOTTEN.....TO OTHERS....PART OF THE PAST....BUT TO THE ONES WHO REALLY LOVED HER......HER MEMORY WILL LAST.....

PEACE AT LAST, PEACE AT LAST, PEACE AT LAST.........REST WELL DEAR FRIEND.......

Veggy, you have a wonderful friend in FireKracker. She will love you always and cares so much about your family. You are at peace now. Your sense of humor is greatly missed. My heart goes out to your family and wish them strength to carry on without their much loved wife/mother.

Oh Veggie, another friend went to visit you.  Could you please guide Stan and give him a welcome greeting for me.. I wasn't able to see him before he left this earth and I'm feeling really bad about not being there for Connie during this time.. Let him know that I will miss him as much as I miss you.  Hugs and Kisses to you both.

(((Veggie))) thought of you and your dear family often this holiday season.  There are no words that can heal their pain...only time and spiritual comfort for each one as each is ready.
Miss you here...life was too short and you were too young...
I learned a lot from you, dear sister.

Gma Foley, sorry to hear of the loss of another friend.  It is hard...and there is way too much loss here.
