I will always remember and cherish Val's wonderful smile and her warmth. I pray for the Burkart and Westerbeek families as we mourn the loss of our sister, daughter, wife, mother and friend. God Bless You all.

Tim, Just received word of Val's passing. I'm very sorry. Please know that we're praying for your family, and I will let our congregation know as well, as many of us were in school with you and Val. I'm thankful to know that we'll have a grand reunion with our classmates again one Day. May the peace of Christ be with you and your family. Ken
