"I have been a fan since the70's when I was just a teenager. Throughout the years I have been in love with the music of the famous couple,Ashford and Simpson. Your music has always touched me soul and I was so in awe of the love that was evident between the two of you.
Valerie my deepest sympathy as I know the pain you are in. I also have lost my mate four years ago. I felt like all the air was taken away from me. A very dear friend told me earlier this year that what I must do now is to live my life in a way to honor his memory and what was shared between the two of us. This way only one life is lost, not two. May God continue to bless you and your family.
Love to you,
A loyal fan."
"Thank you Nick for such beautiful music during your life time. You will truly be missed! You and Valarie gave us that still believed in LOVE, something to truly hold on to. Your words will live on in the minds and hearts of those you touched with so much wisdom. Rest in Peace!!!"
Thank you for all the years of beautiful music you and your wife gave us. It was obvious the two of you had a special connection s I noticed in all pictures of the two of you, you were always touching:) The music the young people have to listen to can't hold a candle to yours! I will continue to be a loyal fan as you rest in eternal peace Nick"
