Our Valerie

Hi Everyone -

I had a lovely email from sweet Valerie yesterday. She has had some continuing medical problems but managine okay. It is apparent she has a wonderful, loving, supportive family. She did send me a joke so I know she's still got that sense of humor and spirit. She lives about 15 miles from me as the crow flies, so we're hoping at some point we can meet up soon. I'm looking forward to also meeting her mom. For those of you who are new, when I had knee replacement surgery in June, Valerie showed up in my hospital room. I was about 4 hours out of surgery and absolutely stunned that she went to all the trouble just to find me. All she knew was which hospital I was in. She had a balloon and a bag of "Valerie tricks". I have never had anyone go that extra, extra, extra mile for me. She is as lovely and funny in person as she appears on here. Be glad she is your friend! She did say she had not been at her computer for a while but I think we can expect to hear from here sometime soon. Blessings to all.

Ah! Hearing this makes my heart happy. I am glad Ms. V is doing okay. She seems like such a wonderful human being, and I'm glad she has been able to be there for you, too, Sharon.

Thanks for the update!

Oh my God i used to email her all the time until i started to feel a little sick and then i stopped for a while too. Please oh please tell her that i hope she gets better soon and that i will be praying for her. Please tell her that i miss her and i miss all her crazy emails. Give her a big kiss and hug for me if you see her again. Thanks and God bless you.

I'm so glad that she updated you a little. Hopefully soon like you said she will be on more often. Oh and yes she is still a happy camper. The other day when I talked to her she was able to cheer me up and give me a great laugh.
