"I would like to give my deepest condolences to Val's children and all of the family, it is a very sad time for everyone. I met her about 44 years ago. I had planned to visit her in April but due to Covid it unfortunately didn't work out. Recently before she was hospitalized we talked twice a week, or more. She was the most special, kind, loving person and loved her family so much. She was proud of them all. I will miss her so much and pray she is now at peace with her love Herb."

"I remember Val in the mid 50's when Herbie just got out of the service and before they got married. We enjoyed spending time with them at their Rotonda home and at Lake Placid Florida. Sorry for your loss and sending you love from Florida."

"I am so sorry for your loss. I truly loved talking with and swimming with Val. I will miss her dearly. She was happy funny and always had a joke or two. She always said that your dad was the king of jokes and always would say this was one of My husband’s joke. I will keep her in my heart and her family in my prayers. Sincerely. Ron and Kathy McMahon."
