  1. My deep sympathy to Val’s family. Our son David was one of the many special needs people who received her special concern and care. My wife, Lois felt a particularly strong link to Val. She a great example of the truth that, “The love in your life is directly proportional to the life in your love.” She will be missed by so many.

  2. I am so sorry to all of Val’s family for the loss of such a wonderful woman. Val meant so much to everyone that met her. She was caring and loving to all of the people she worked with. I have had many wonderful times with Val sharing many laughs and tears with her. Val had a beautiful testimony of her Savior. I hope you can find comfort in knowing she is free from her worldly problems and is happy and healthy.
    I could always count on the best advice and the most honest answers to come from Val, even when it hurt, it was always true! I love her and her family dearly and I will miss her!

  4. Love you, Val! I will always remember being around your happy, comedic presence. You always brought smiles to those with whom you came in contact. And you were always a best friend to my mother — She cried long and hard when she heard from Paul about your passing. You were always so kind and loving to her and to our entire family. I will always remember you.

  5. I am so sorry for your loss, cousin Paul. I’m sending long-distance hugs to you and the whole family from Denver. I wish I could have been there in person to help remember Val and to celebrate the kind compassion she poured into the world with abundance. The world is a better place because of all she did and shared during in her life. All my love.

  6. Will always hold the memories of spending time with you and your family close to my heart. Memories like being stung by a bee at your house in Payson and you provided treatment, Christmas parties at your house in Santa Clara, frequent visits throughout the year, coming to your house for a week during the summer. Having you take us to a pool. Going through a corn maze. Thanks for everything and being such a defining part of my childhood. You were an inspiration for my decision to become a paramedic. This past week has been so full of those wonderful memories, I will miss you with all my heart. I’m so grateful for everything you did for me and I know you are now with our Father and his son, having a happy reunion with your parents, your brother, and son. Love you and will never forget you Aunt Val.

  7. Val was such a sweet and kindhearted person. I’m so sorry for your family’s loss. My thoughts are with all of you.
