  1. I’m sorry to hear of Auntie Vals passing. I have fond memories of my sisters and I playing in your garden and running around your flowerbed maze. Auntie Val liked to talk about our Grandad, keeping his memory alive for us. I like to think she is having a family party up in heaven with my Grandad and Uncle Harry, telling them about what we’re up to!

    Lots of love
    Adam, Emma, Harry, Alexis and Bertie. Xx

  2. Thinking of you all always but especially on Tuesday. Look forward to celebrating the life of this wonderful lady, remembering and reminiscing with a smile on our faces and a warmth in our hearts xox

  3. So sorry Bobby, Sharon and Andy. Val will be missed. Always made us feel welcome, during our visits. Kept us up to date with what the grandchildren had been doing, she was proud of you all.

    Amanda, John, Ann Hobley
  4. To Bob and the family, We are so sorry to hear of your sad loss of a much loved wife, mother and grandmother. Val will be sadly missed, but you are all in our thoughts and prayers. With love from Lyn, Caroline and Rose
