Val’s favorite bible verse was “The Lord’s Prayer” that she recited before she prayed. Her greatest joy in life was to hear her children or grandchildren pray and tell her “I love you”.  Visitation will be at Jerusalem Baptist Church, 11109 Jerusalem Baptist Church Road, Hammond, Monday, September 25, 2023, from 11:00 a.m. until memorial services at 12:00 p.m. conducted by Rev.
