"My Memories of Valerie"
a photo essay
of the lucky encounter with a great human being

R. Malcolm Brown, Jr.
Austin, Texas



Boy did we have fun in LA!
We brought our food to an urban concert right in the heart of LA and it was just electrifying to be around the Maslow family!

Here is our true “pilot”
Valerie, you  brought love, honor,and pleasure to your family and friends!


It’s OK to rest once in a while! Enjoy!

Well, Valerie, you certainly did not rest when we were visiting you! Cooking and keeping in touch with everyone and things was just a part of your routine day!

Were were constantly on the move. Now it is your turn to show us a fancy LA supermarket and place to buy fine cutlery

Ah, yes, those great breakfasts!

Malcolm and Ann introduced Valerie to the Huntington Botanical gardens and it was a beautiful day, one which I shall never forget.

Here Valerie meets Dr. Jim Folsom, Director who is showing her some of Malcolm’s giant cells which will be used in the educational exhibit at the gardens.

Val also met the Garden’s chief  landscape designer

Playing around in the Garden! No, it is not raining, Valerie!

Valerie is just hugging up Ann while we stopped to get a bite to eat at the Huntington Gardens

Valerie, you mean so much to Ann and me! We will always be your friends. We love you!

With love and great admiration and understanding-
Your true friends

I have asked the Maslow family for the name of a charity that you may wish to donate in Valerie's memory. They have suggested the LOS ANGELES FREE CLINIC, an organization that Valerie devoted much of her time to in order to provide the uninsured and underprivileged with the medical care that they deserve. Click on the underlined to learn more about their programs and how to donate.
