Great neighbors are priceless



Allison Grill

Valerie, this is so beautiful! We also shared the kind words you wrote about her at her funeral, and we were all moved to tears. She was so blessed to have you as a neighbor, and talked about you often. I couldn’t agree more about her positive outlook! I recently shared about her in a Bible study, and how she was an inspiration of contentment:

“She is clothed with strength and dignity; she can laugh at the days to come. She speaks with wisdom, and faithful instruction is on her tongue. She watches over the affairs of her household and does not eat the bread of idleness. Her children arise and call her blessed; her husband also, and he praises her: “Many women do noble things, but you surpass them all.” Charm is deceptive, and beauty is fleeting; but a woman who fears the Lord is to be praised. Honor her for all that her hands have done, and let her works bring her praise at the city gate.”
‭‭Proverbs‬ ‭31:25-31‬ ‭NIV‬‬

That was Gran.

Thanks again for this beautiful tribute.

How sweet of you to write, Allison. And what a wonderful Scripture passage, so appropriate for your Gran and my dear friend Julia. I've heard so much about all of you and your visits to Mountainside Road! You have such a wonderful family. Much love to all of you.
