I never met Mrs. Valdrow, but through conversation with her daughter Donna, I feel like I knew her! A very beautiful lady with a big '-! My deepest sympathy to Donna and her whole family! She's an Angel in heaven! God Bless!

My condolences go out to the family. As you prepare to lay your loved one to rest, may you find comfort from your Bibles at Psalms 34:18. " HE" is close to the brokenhearted and crushed in spirit. Nahum 1:7 tells us Jehovah is good, a stronghold in the day of distress. He is mindful of those seeking refuge in him
