Val, you are truly missed by all. I am honored we were friends for so many years. I’ve enjoyed every single minute we spent together, whether it was at work at Pinnacle Financial or Navy Federal Credit Union, watching our KC Chiefs (during good and bad years) or at the beach. Friends like you are hard to find. I know you are watching over us from heaven. Knowing you are healed in Gods presence gives me peace. I will see you again in the kingdom of Heaven. I will keep an eye out for Rick. (We both know he needs that). He really misses you. Thank you for our special times together. I will cherish them forever. This years Chiefs season I dedicate to your memory. (Let’s hope they don’t disappoint us) RIP sweetie! You are home and pain free! I love you. God Bless.
