I met Val in Dxb. We worked for the same Company and with time we became good friends, which turned to be even more... she was a sister to me. She loved her family dearly and did everything she could do to support and encourage them to do better. Life had not been truly fair to her, but she was a trooper who took long and strong strides to succeed. Her favourite pet were dogs. She be-friended every dog she saw, and one of our memories were that a pregnant girl who decided to make our "home" her home and we ended up having 12 puppies. It was our task was to ensure that the pups survived as the the mum who was weak could not help feed all of these little ones. What fun and joy Val and I had feeding and taking care of these pups. Val... loved dogs so much that she would even feed yogurt to them :) Not a good idea! Val... was not only a dear friend to me, but to my husband Clifford and my daughter Shona. We spent much weekends and celebration together. Val... is at peace now with no more suffering. We miss her

I walked for you! As October is the month for breast cancer awareness, I walked in the Pink Walkathon in UAE just for you Val on behalf every one who loves you and misses you. God bless you.
If tears could wash away our pain, We would not feel such hurt again, The heartbreak felt since you've been gone, We wouldn't wish on anyone, But today is your birthday, So we'll have to be brave And accept God's taken what first He gave. Always remembered &missed by your loving Mum Patricia, sisters Bev, Ingrid & Cheryl, bro Jerome, bro-in-law Darrel & Robert, sis-in-law Dorothy, nephews Alister, Dion, Kevin & Chevon, and nieces Shanaya, Jade & Skye. We love you Val May your soul rest in peace!
In tears we saw you sinking, We watched you fade away, Our hearts were almost broken, You fought so hard to stay, But when we saw you sleeping, So peacefully free from pain, We could not wish you back, To suffer that again." Death leaves a heartache No one can heal; Love leaves a memory No one can steal. Fondly remembered by your Mummy Patricia, sisters Bev, Ingrid, Chero, brother Jerome, Nephews Alister, Kevin, Chevon, Dion, Gavin, Hayden & nieces Shanaya, Jade & Skye We Love You Val

God saw you getting tired and a cure was not to be so he put his arms around you and whispered, “Come to Me” With tearful eyes we watched you and saw you pass away and although we love you dearly we could not make you stay. A Golden heart stopped beating hard working hands at rest. God broke our hearts to prove to us he only takes the best Rest in peace dear Val.

In life we loved you dearly In death we love you still In our hearts you hold a special place No one could ever fill.
