As a matter of fact, it's important that we use names at least once before we start using pronouns in our posts. It's both bad English and makes our posts extremely confusing to those of us that don't know whom the pronouns refer to.
On another note though, Valorie and Takumi's plans aren't public knowledge. Only she, Mark, and Takumi know anything about them.
Valorie, Mark & Takumi know what about what? I'm confused.
