RIP. I could feel the love she had for life, no matter where it took her.

Rest in peace, fair lady. You and I never got along famously, but did find common ground at times. And I'm grateful that we did. 

You will be missed.

Although I mainly interacted with Valerie in the electronic world, I did get to meet her a couple of times in person back when the Jazz Corner crowd organized "hangs" down in New York City. She was a funny woman who knew a little something about nearly everyone in the Jazz world. You'd bring up a name, and she'd have a story. I remember having a PM conversation with her about some session she mentioned she was at and I was amazed at her recall. The Jazz world lost a lot of great memories with her passing,

The thing about Val was that she was a friend to so many and an enemy of very few. If they can write that on your headstone, you did good.

And I have to say, I can't believe she was 77! She seemed so much younger. She'd get a good laugh at me saying that. I am going to miss her.

RIP Valerie.  Very strange they changed her so much on the character based on her for the Tina Turner movie but not surprising being Hollywood.  I recall Valerie saying somewhere in the forums she had left that organization a long time ago.  Incidentally, the Buddhist sect I am a part of, Shinnyo-en gets mistaken many  times for the group Herbie Hancock, Wayne Shorter and Tina Turner belong to.

Love that photo of her with Horace.  Being a friend to many and enemy of a few is so very hard, I aim for that myself.  But unlike a few people who made tons of enemies on the board, Valerie was always very kind.
