Gone, But Never Forgotten

"Val’s passing is a devastating loss to his family, friends and the greater community. Although his life was tragically cut short, I am convinced he fulfilled his calling. The way he died is a reflection of the way he lived. Literally, his final steps were to help others. We stop to remember him often."

Danny Miller, Seabrook resident and personal friend

"Heroes are hard to see until we need them. Usually they don’t even recognize the heroism in themselves until circumstances require it. So it was with Valerij. When we honor the heroes that fate gives is we plant the seed of selfless courage in another soul for our next time of need."

Rusty Cates, owner Coffee Oasis
