Like Mell said when he posted. its is so hard to take in that Val has left us..it would be nice if we can all spare a minute on Wednesday at 10.30..to remember a really lovely lady...and and a good friend to many...and spare a thought or two for her husband Steve and her two sons.
God bless Val xx
Love
Barbara

    Thanksyou everyone for replying...
    Val was always there when needed, gave support to many ....her priority was her family and her love for them... and of course getting away on holiday, that her and Steve had saved for all year ...I am sure her sons look in and will be helped knowing how much Val was thought of on the forum..
    She was only 52..and was already on the forum when I joined 4 years ago, she said the cafe was started because she though it was a good place to meet up and have a chat.
    So Vals cafe will carry on in her name...xxxxxx
    Love
    Barbara

    I send Steve and their boys my happy memories of Val, a wife, a mum and a good 'virtual' friend. She made me laugh with her wit and trenchant comments. I miss her. DD
