I met Vallee Several years ago, when I was very new in Business. We met when I was opening a Bank account at BOA, she authorized my new checking account, even though she didn't remember doing that. I had some problems and couldn't open an account and she believed in me and authorized it. I remember sitting at her desk, Blonde Hair, suit and warm smile. It must have been about 2003. She later became my regular nail client, I was just 28, or 29. She was my most loyal and longest client at my salon. We became friends over the years, you can't help but not after spending two hours every two weeks with someone for almost ten years. She has been one of my most cherished friends and confidants. She knew everything about my salon and me, and loved me and encouraged me. I am forever grateful for her unconditional love and loyalty. She has touched my life in a way no words can describe. From what I have read I see she had this influence on the people around her. She has been a mentor, friend, and another Mom. She was kind during difficult years, just showing up and listening to me at times for all I went through trying to start a business, she gave me solid advice and support helped me so much. It helped me to go on, when I didn't want to. Thank you Vallee for saving me and my business. I promise to give what you given me to others when I can. I loved her no-nonsense approach and candor about life and people, great cooking, and warm smile, she was always smiling and helped me to not take life so seriously. She became one of my best friends. I got to know her a little outside of work, she came to my house for a few parties, and we saw Absinthe for her Birthday and ate at Serendipity. We laughed the whole show through. I only hope you know how much I loved you and cherished you. I'm so sorry you had to endure such great pain, I don't think it was fair, Only God knows why. My hope is to spare everyone of pain, but that's not possible. Thank you for the time you shared with me, I wish it could be for a lifetime. I will see you in Heaven again. We never talked much about God, but I believe he sent you to me to help me and be my friend when I needed it, You are one of my Earth Angels. I don't want to say goodbye, not this way, but until we meet again, I know you are in God's hand, and you are pain free, full of light and flying with the Angels now. Blessings to your family, to Steve, and Eddy, my heart goes out to them. I promise to never give up, to fight for my life, for my dreams, for those I love and for what is right and just. I promise to let those I love, know I love them. I will never meet another you, in this lifetime, life is so precious and short. Vallee thank you for believing in my and sharing so many wonderful years with me, It has been an honor to know you and to be in your presence. You have been a beautiful example of how to be a loving, loyal and kind friend and a courageous, graceful human being on this winding path of life. Thank You, Best Friend.
