The little money that you have given me is of great value to me.

Here, what does of mean and which part of speech of is?

Will there be any problem if I omit OF?

This is a very specific use of "of" to connect an item with an attribute of that item. Other examples:

  • This book may be of interest to you. (This book may interest you.)
  • He said nothing of any importance. (What he said was not important at all.)
  • She is a girl of great intelligence. (A somewhat flowery way of saying: she is very intelligent.)

Omitting "of" will make it ungrammatical, but you could instead say that something has great value to someone.
