Nancy and Jason, we are so sorry for your loss! Val was a special lady, loved being amongst the hustle and bustle of the work room at Star. She especially loved when the first graders came into read to her. May your memories give you comfort until that joyous reunion in heaven.

Back in my stay at home dad days I volunteered up at Star of Bethlehem. Whenever I was there Valieda was always there helping the kids. My prayers are with all who mourn her passing.
