Palermo family: Even though the way you finally have closure is not what anyone would wish for, I am relieved that you can now move forward and hopefully find a way to live with the loss of your daughter. She remains firmly in your hearts.

Philip and Arlene: My wife and I drove from Las Vegas to attend an event at the Mohave Event Center and when I saw the picture of your daughter at the side of the road, the purity of her face so impacted me that After being back in LV, I had to try using the Internet with just the picture frozen in my mind to try to discover the name associated with the picture and perhaps learn who she was.
Long story short, I discovered your daughter and the confirmation that the purity reflected in the picture was so real.
I wish I had met your daughter and I share in your loss. She obviously had excellent parents.
(I hope you see my message even though it is received so long after Val's Celibration of Life)

Gone too soon. A great heart, an amazing person. I'll always remember the good times... the soccer games, the sleepovers, the college outings. "'s alright to be little bitty. little hometown in a big old city..."
