My sincere condolences to the Harper family. I worked with Valeria at the Northeast Community Mental Health Center. I was so impressed with her vast knowledge base and dedication to patient care. She was incredibly helpful to all the staff there. Importantly, I remember Valeria talking about, Charisse and her plans for a vibrant future. May memories bring comfort and peace to your family during this time.

My condolences to the family....Valeria was one of the most warm and kind persons that you only meet once in a while. Her life & career were a service to the most frail among us; and her dedication to working with them and for them is an inspiration to us all. Valeria was a "gift" to all of us and will be dearly missed. My thoughts and prayers are with you.

My sympathy goes out to your family at this time. Although I did not know Valeria personally, it is obvious from the heartfelt comments that she was dearly loved. When we lose a loved one in death, the pain, the grief, and the feelings of helplessness can seem unbearable. At such times, we can go to God’s Word the Bible for comfort. May you find such comfort in the scriptural promises at John 5:21, 28, 29 and Psalm 37:29; promises made by a God that cannot lie. And may the love of family and friends support you in the days ahead.

My heart breaks for everyone that knew Valeria and especially for Charisse, her grandkids and her siblings. I worked with Valeria at Murtis Taylor, the Board, and for seven years after leaving the Board. She always worked tirelessly and was totally dedicated to helping persons with mental illnesses and substance abuse. She was a loving friend, great co-worker and boss and I miss her already more than I can say. What a communiity loss. May God grant her family and all who knew her comfort in knowing that she is with the God she loved so much.
