Condolence From: Betsy Kentner Comeau
Condolence: Sending heartfelt condolences to the Putney and Bump families over the loss of Val. You know the saying, 'A Match Made in Heaven"?....this fit Leonard and Val to a tee. They both seemed to have found a deep and everlasting love and a palpable joy which encompassed all of their families and friends in their daily lives. Last winter when Leonard and Val called me and spoke to me on speakerphone after I broke my pelvis, we shared laughs, reminiscing over the old times and I remember you, Len, saying while Val was agreeing," Life is too short, so embrace each day as they come". While the road ahead of you will be rough without the one special person present to accompany you, know that Val's angel will be cheering you on from the sidelines, whispering to you in moments of despair and doubt and know she is always with you tucked away safely in your heart until you meet again.
Live each day, smile each day, find joy in each day in order to honor her memory and legacy. Hugs to all.

Condolence From: Rebecca Caraballo
Condolence: Hello, my name is Rebecca. I am from the Potsdam area, and I wanted to say to the friends and family of Valerie Putney, that I am very sorry for your loss. I also wanted to share a little word of encouragement.

There is a lovely scripture that always helped me through difficult times. It's found in Revelation 21:4. It specks of God's promise for the earth and everyone on it. It says, "And he [God] will wipe out every tear from their eyes, and death will be no more, neither will mourning nor outcry nor pain be anymore. The former things have passed away.”

Isn't that a beautiful promise? If you would like to learn more about God's future hope, please contact me at Thank you for your time.

Condolence: Val, when I looked at the obituaries today I never expected to see your name 😰
Leonard, I am so sorry for your loss. Valerie was my best friend all the way through high school, we made many memories and I will never forget her. Her family meant the world to her, she told me how she loved her son and her husband.
My thoughts are with all of you through this difficult time. I hope god gives you strength, she was too young. She will be a beautiful angel and will be happy to see her dad ❤️
You will forever be in my heart, we did have so many good times when we were younger - LOL we did laugh a lot, we shared so many secrets, we shared the birth of Ricky, what an amazing young man. ❤️ Valerie always told me that when she met Leonard she knew he was the one, it never mattered that they didn't have a lot of money because she was finally happy. RIP Valerie, I know I will see you again one day. 💔😰💔😢🌷🙏
