To Mark and family - We are shocked and saddened to learn of Valerie's passing. She was a lovely woman and we always enjoyed seeing her whenever we attended plays and concerts and other events. We know she was a very special part of your family. We know that words cannot ease your pain and your loss, but we hope it helps to know that we care and that you will always be in our thoughts and prayers. May she rest peacefully. Bert and Kay Baron
