Valerie, my next older sister, is celebrating her 48th birthday today.
Val and I had such a rocky childhood together, it’s a wonder we’re as close as we are today. We used to fight and fight and fight. She had some serious fingernails that she’d dig into me when I made her mad.
But, after she got married and moved out of the house, we began to get along… really well. Sisters.
Valerie is #4 of the “Goulet 11”. She married David’s first cousin, so like me, her maiden name was Goulet and her married name is now Wallace. We ALWAYS get to see each other at family get-togethers. Ha! Her first son, Jeremiah, was born in 1981 and her second child, Hunter, was born in 1999!! She became a grandma and a mother again in the same year. Bless her heart.
Val is a great mother. She is very involved in school activities and Hunter’s sports. She’s also a great sister and friend.
