Remembering Val with Gratitude
Val (Horne) Boucher, our friend and partner in ministry passed away last week at her home. Her passing, thankfully, brings and end to the suffering she bore with such grace and courage.
Before her diagnosis Val regularly served our friends and neighbors at our food pantry. Even as her illness worsened and her pain increased, she would often make the journey to Monica's Kitchen to brighten our spirits with her easy good humor and tenderness. This picture is from Christmas, 2021 when she and her husband, Joe, helped us prepare gift bags. Val was determined to make Christmas a little brighter for others - especially children.
We will give thanks for Val's friendship and offer prayerful support to her family and friends at her funeral Mass on Saturday, 4/9 at 11 a.m. at St. Monica's Church.
All are welcome!
