Valerie Koop, We have never met but my thoughts and prayers are with you. I also am a widow…older than you, but he also was taken from me to young. I thought my life was over and the pain was relentless….Like you I had beautiful children who helped me realize he would have wanted me to continue living my life and enjoying my family and friends. I can say that to you now because my grief is not as painful as it was 10 years ago. People will tell you time heals…it does… but never forget your love and keep him alive with stories for your children. May God bless you and your family and give you strength to face each new day.

Hi Denise . . . you don’t know me. I’m Val’s sister. I just have to thank you for all you have done in lifting my sister up to the clouds. Thank you for loving on her and making sure she is taken care of in ways I couldn’t imagine putting together. Thank you. Seriously. Hope to meet you someday so I can give you a huge hug. XOXO

I am so grateful for the chance to give. I don’t know that what I donated will bring much…but I’m just glad to be able to help in some small way!

Jami and Denise…you are inspirational!

I have read every post on Val’s site… I am praying for her as she continues to take care of those precious children. I will continue to be praying and am so thankful for what you and your friends are doing!

Awesome! I can’t wait!

I have no words … what more could I say since you said it beautifully? My husband has been in Pharr, TX vistiting his Dad this week-end … I love my house, but I hate being here when he is not! He is everywhere, but not here at all! All week-end I’ve been thinking, “What if something happened to him …” Our kids are grown and have kids of their own … Val’s husband didn’t get to live his life! I am thrilled to be able to participate in the auction – thank you for the opportunity. I love your Val, too!

Steph S - February 27, 2011 - 8:03 pm
