Gone, But Never Forgotten
"Vals 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."
Seabrook resident and personal friend
"Heroes are hard to see until we need
them. Usually they dont 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."
