Valeria is pronounced in a way that rhymes with “gallery,” not the Galleria. She and her husband Harold watch way to much HGTV. The two of them always have a DIY (do-it-yourself) house project going on. They’ve changed most everything about the house they moved into 3 years ago, including the staircase. Interestingly, Harold went to Grissom High School with Pastor Steve.
