5 Tributes for “Valorie Annette LeDuc

    In what seems like another lifetime, we were friends. We talked, and laughed, and shared our dreams. We traveled to new places, tried new things and you were a witness of my marriage, my maid of honor. Then, as it happens, lives changed and evolved, and I have a big regret that I lost contact with you. Be in peaceful rest, now, in your Savior’s arms, as I look through old photo albums and remember my pieces of you. Love you Val.

    Val was my best friend that my heart is breaking to pieces. I always thought Val and I would be Raptured at the same time. She was a Christian that everyone could see, and loved the Lord with her whole heart. We talked about how it would be in heaven and now she is there. She was so proud of her four children and grandchildren. She spoke about them with pride and a sweet smile on her face. She is a friend that I will miss with everything in me. I can’t say enough for Val. There was no other person like her. I wish I could visit with you one more time… just more time. I saw her Good Friday before Easter before she knew she was sick. I will never forget our last visit. I had no idea our hug would be our last hug of friendship.

    I knew Valerie though work with Community Outreach in Nevada Missouri and riding on the Oats bus and I also knew through the Pine Street Baptist Church and she was always so kind and friendly She will be dearly missed
