Condolence: I am so sorry to hear of Val's passing. We swam together at West High and I remember her fondly. She was a warm and wonderful person. Those we love are always with us, they dwell in our hearts forever.

Condolence: I was very sad to hear the tragic news. Valerie interviewed me and helped me get my first job at KPMG. I met the family once at a West Point football game and it was tons of fun. I send my deepest condolences.

Condolence: I had the pleasure of several tours of duty with Valerie -- halcyon days at Loudonville Elementary PTA; cheering our daughters on the modified swim team at Shaker Junior High; and serving together as members of the YMCA Camp Chingachgook Board of Advisors. Her intelligence, pragmatism, esprit de corps and quiet spirituality were a source of personal inspiration and amazement. Though her light was extinguished much too soon, I know her adventurous spirit will live on in the many concentric circles of lives she touched.

Condolence: Frank, Emily and Frankie,
I was shocked to hear the news about Valerie. I will forever have fond memories of our time together in Japan raising our children together. Just this morning I was admiring the picture of all the kids in the "Best Friends" fame you gave me. My love to you all.
