As these little buggers can get caked up with soot pretty good, I think a good tool is a ladies slipper, heal bar, etc., etc. You need to apply a fairly constant and upward force, working your way around the base of the valve body, to get it out.

They do make a special puller to remove the EGR valve, but I have used a good broom stick with wire wrapped through the holes in the EGR Valve many times to pull mine. Just tie the wire, and use the broom handle to 'pry' up to pop out the EGR valve. It's kinda tough, but it should 'pop' out.
I used mechanics wire through the bolt holes steady upward pressure and tapped it lightly as I pulled, it popped right out. I thought about useing a pry bar of sorts but did not want to chance to much pressure on one side and cracking it.

Thanks alot guys, you really helped me out. I don't have shoe horns, but I do have a painters multitool, and that worked great when a pried it under the ears with side of tool from cleaning off a paint roller. Also a tip for anyone with kids that saved the small baby food jars, that fits the EGR just perfectly when letting it sit in Carb cleaner to prevent it from getting in the weep holes
