So very sorry to hear about Val. She loved by many. So universally liked, we spent many hours in chit chat when I was dx. Rest in peace. Dxx

Re: scottishlass

I was very sad to read of Val's death. I did not know her, and have not even "spoken" with her online myself, but I have read many of her posts. Her compassion and desire to ease the worry and suffering of others shone through in what she wrote. In the dark weeks and months following diagnosis, I collected some of the most inspiring posts from this site together onto one sheet of paper, one of them being a post of Val's. I still carry that sheet of paper with me all the time. I just wanted to let her family know that she helped me enormously, even though she didn't know me at all, and I'm sure there are many more women like me. May your soul rest in peace Val x.

Re: scottishlass

To our very own Val, a lady who will be truly missed by everyone. One very special
Lady who helped so many on this awful journey with love, support, compassion, humour and empathy.
We'll be lighting a candle for Val tonight on our live chat. You really were a beacon of hope and a bright shining star. Fly free and high, thinking of all you butterfly girls.
My sincere condolences to Val's lovely husband, her two daughters, dad and her family and friends.
Much love
Chris xxxx

Re: scottishlass

I'm another who felt Val's care and kindness through this website. Newly diagnosed three years ago, she gave me hope that there might be tomorrows. Now, I realise that her greatest gift was not that she was able to hang in there for so many years, but that she showed me the importance of living each day as it comes as fully as possible. I hope her family and friends know how important she has been to so very many women on this site and beyond, and how much she will be missed.

Val's passing is truly like losing our Mum. She held so many people's hands, including mine, through this site, giving us inspiration and hope. She always gave encouragement with love and friendship. Her family should be very proud of her. Rest in peace Val, you will be missed very much xxx

Re: scottishlass

This site will never be the same without you Val; you gave us hope, you helped us make sense of this awful disease, you made us laugh with your gormeless shopping. I am sorry I never get to meet you in the flesh. Those cyber discussions will always stay with me. 

You are free of pain, rest in peace lovely ladies.

So very sad to hear this news. Val was an inspiration to so many people. A brave, witty, kind, courageous and thoughtful lady who freely gave her knowledge and advice, she will be sorely missed by all who knew her. Sincere condolences to her family and friends who I know must be devestated to lose such a wonderful person. Val, you truly were the best of us. Rest in Peace. You will never be forgotten. Emma x

Re: scottishlass

ScottishLass was a friend to everyone on this site - to newly diagnosed and petrified primary ladies and to those travelling with secondaries.  Always gentle, encouraging and caring, she was, and is, a true inspiration.

 

Rest peacefully Val, your journey is now complete.

 

Condolences to your family and friends
