Nan what can I say to you that I havent already done so in the last 41 yrs of my life to let you know what you mean to me. You are my rock, my problem solver and most importantly my best friend. You gave me so many wonderful memories and taught me so much about life and family love that helped make me the person I am today. Although seeing you tomorrow and saying goodbye for now will be the hardest thing I’ve done I will see you in time again and I take comfort in that. Just know that part of you will be in all of us for generations to come. You created a family built on love and trust. I love you with all my heart Nan.

Valerie was a special lady and a wonderful sister to my Nan.

When I was a child my Nan took my Brother and I to America to stay with Valerie and the family. It is one of my best memories and I will chose to remember Valerie as I did then; a warm, kind and loving lady who was loved by many.

I trust you are in a perfect place and watching down on all of the family. You will be missed.
