Valda and I met in 1980 when I was pregnant with my daughter Khendra who Valda predicted would be a girl prior to the ultrasound reading, Valda was very proud of that fact. We loved valda so very much as she was a part of our family for over 30 years, we have so many wonderful memories of her. She was such a beautiful person, she loved life and people. There is a big hole in my heart but I know she is in a better place but I still miss her so very much. Rest in peace my beloved friend as it is so well deserved. I will always love and miss you.
Fun-Loving, Go-Getting, No-Nonsense, Bold, Daring, Inspiring, Wise, Beautiful, Awesome! These are just a few of the words I would use in an attempt to describe this amazing gift to the world. Although her late sister, Auntie Yvette was my official Godmother, I claimed Auntie Valda as mine too. My late mom, Heather Hurley Richards completed their lovely trio. In life, they were always together, even if they were miles apart. You could not be in Auntie Valda's presence without laughing at her antics or a joke she was telling. She was so animated; and always so entertaining with a heart as big as it could be. I am convinced that the three are together in God's glory. Auntie Valda lived life to the fullest on Earth and now she will live her eternal life to its fullest in the presence of the Lord in total peace and rest. Thank you Jesus!
I was first introduced to Valda back in 2006 when she became a client of mine. She turned into a great friend, and for the past 7 years I don't think there was a week that went by that Valda and I did not speak to one another. Valda my dear....you will be missed. I love you.
Valda, you will be missed. Both Bobby and I loved having you as of our team, and most importantly, as our friend. We know you are in a better place and are so glad you are no longer in pain.
Love, Paula & Bobby
Valda Archer was an amazing woman. As she traveled the world and loved to have a good time. She would send her son post cards and gifts from where ever she was and sometimes she would bring him over to America to visit us over here in the states... Valda has left behind a trail of love laughter in all of her friends and family. She has 3 God children and one honorary God Child Khendra Riley, Nyoka Richards Moise, Tafara Calloway , and Julian Riley. She has cousins that span as far away as Sweeden, a barage of family in New York, and even in Sarasota Florida. She has shared so much with all of us and given so much love and kindness. She will be forever missed.
