In 2005, my mother-in-law became sick with cancer. It was a devastating blow to our family, as she was the glue that held us all together. At the time, I had 2 children of my own, and 3 young foster children. Life was busy, but I dedicated myself to her needs. I cleaned, shopped, transported, listened, laughed, cried, and sat with her for hours during chemotherapy. She passed in 2008, but at some point during those 3 years, Val became my best friend, and she affectionately referred to me as her angel. I would like to provide that same love and care to others, as it makes my heart happy. I am in the process of following my heart, and creating my own senior services business. I would value the opportunity to work with you or your loved one. - Lori Verdin (Val's Angel)
