I will truly miss seeing your bright and cheery face at the 400 Club! You were always so positive and that positivity rubbed off on so many other people. Perhaps you didn’t realize that. You were always so worried about the next person struggling with addiction that you forgot to take care of YOU! As for the next newcomer that would walk through those club doors, you always welcomed them with open arms and gave them your phone number for support. God bless you for that! I will always remember your uniqueness, it always caught my attention. My most sincere condolences to Val and Mike’s family. I hope that you know that Val is now in Heaven, where there is no sickness, illnesses, or any other of life’s struggles. Val, May you Rest In Peace. Every time I walk into the 400 Club I will always think of you. All of my love, Jenn Brewer
Val my chink butt...i love you so much. Friends from the start. At the age of 5. We clicked instantly...we had a bond that wasnt like any other. We brought the better parts of ourselves out when with each other this past year. You were here for me when "My best friend" was no longer my best friend... I was devistated to say the least. Losing loved ones ...wether it be a friend or a significant other...wether they are no longer here in spirit or they choose to leave for their own reasoning. It's something i have never really learned to handle. Having to let go when you are not ready or its unexpected is so hard to handle. Val...you helped me stay sober when it was the only thing I wanted to do. I didnt really know how to handle losing someone WITHOUT using to numb the pain. You taught me how. YOU!! And I never told you that. I thankd you for helping me get thru something so deep . But I'm upset bc I never told you that you MADE ME REALIZE I DIDNT HAVE TO PICK UP FOR THE HURT IN MY HEART TO GO AWAY. AND I NOW can handle situations of losing someone close and not use. It hurts. Physically mentally and emotionally. Today I can mourn over my loss of you. I can think clearly and try to heal from this devastating situation without losing myself...something you helped me find again. I love you and I will see you again...in a better world. Where there is no hate or anger or sickness or death. We will live in peace a paradise earth FOREVER!!! SLEEP EASY VALLEY GIRL..XOXOXOXOX
There are no words my heart breaks for your loss . You need to remember all the joy that she brought into your life .
