I met Valerie many years ago, when Leslie and I were in college. What I remember most is her soft Southern accent -- and her bright smile. She was a warm and caring person who will be missed. I hope this poem brings comfort to family and friends.

Her Journey’s Just Begun
by Ellen Brenneman

Don’t think of her as gone away
her journey’s just begun
life holds so many facets
this earth is only one.
Just think of her as resting
from the sorrows and the tears
in a place of warmth and comfort
where there are no days or years.
Think how she must be wishing
that we could know today
how nothing but our sadness
can really pass away.
And think of her as living
in the hearts of those she touched
for nothing loved is ever lost
and she was loved so much.
