    Val, I really enjoyed getting to know you when you worked at the hospital gift shop. You could always make me laugh and I love your candid spirit. I’m so glad I ran into you last week at the store and we got to talk. Rest In Peace. You will be truly missed!

    My deepest sympathy to the Landin family.
    Val was so fun to be around. Never a dull moment and barely a serious one.
    Garage sales at Lonna Kruschkes always meant new underwear for Val!!!
    And, they truly were new, as Lonna”s dear Mom would bring them there to sell…tags still on them!
    May you find comfort in knowing the love she shared with so many- and the love that embraced her when she entered heavens gates.
    God Bless
