So sad to hear of the passing of my Aunt Val,
a family visitor always welcomed into our home when visiting England. Reunited with Uncle Dick And Nan & Pap also Gill & Roger Wright
A heart of gold stopped beating,
Hard working hands now rest.
God broke our hearts to prove to us
he only takes the best.
We think of you in silence,
we often speak your name,
all we have are memories,
your picture in a frame.
A million times we’ve thought of you,
a million times we’ve cried.
If love alone could have saved you,
you never would have died.
It broke our hearts to lose you,
but you didn’t go alone.
For a part of us went with you
the day God took you home.
love & prayers
Andrew & Amy
Mandy & Liam, Ross & Hayley & Glenn xx

Losing someone we love is nothing easy, but knowing that we have been able to be a part of her life, we can realize how blessed we really were. She was one of my favorite aunts and will be sorely missed. I told her countless times how much I loved her British accent. Now I realize that I miss this wonderful woman even more and I’m so happy to have her as my aunt. She will never be forgotten by me.
