Not sure what to say?

I remember so any things about Valerie, how she brought you, Dale to me to baby sit you when you were about 2 years old, she spent several hours with me that day, we just talked and talked like we knew each other for ever. I have pictures of you when you were little. Also how in later years how she tutored, my now deceased daughter, Debby in math. She was such a great help to her. and so many more memories.

In grade 7, I was chosen by Valerie to show her around the school. She was new to Bassett Junior High school and to this day, I do not know how she chose me since we had not met before.

R.I.P. Valerie Bertrand

Valerie has been such an important part of my life for so many memorable years. I will always cherish her easy laughter, gentle spirit, and happy heart. She loved her work as a voice for those who can no longer speak, her family, and her collection. To say I will miss her is an understatement.

I wish peace for Don, Dale, and Joyce. May all family members find comfort in their many loving memories of precious time spent with this beautiful person.

Sorry For Your lost

May your hearts soon be filled with wonderful memories of joyful times together as you celebrate a life well lived.

Milan and Val/Dale's wedding

Until the end, I will awake each morning and retire every evening with Val on my mind. True friendships will do that to you. The Godmother of my daughter and the Godchild of my mother, we have endless memories of joy and life lessons. It was God who blessed me with this remarkable friendship. And it is God who will bring peace to Dale, Don and Joyce.
