In addition to being a devoted husband and father, Val was a multi-talented man; a song-writer, musician, sound technician, salesman, secret karaoke patron, gifted oratorio, and so much more. He encouraged and build confidence in his beautiful daughters and will be missed and remembered with fondness.

A good husband and father, Val will be missed by all who knew him. I am grateful that Val had a personal relationship with the Lord and that, though his absence from this world brings us much sadness, we have the assurance that he is no longer in pain and is now with his Lord and savoir, Jesus.

My Dad is the most amazing father a girl could ever hope for. Daddy and I truly had an undeniable unbreakable bond, not only is he my daddy but truly my best friend.
There is absolutely nothing he wouldn't do for any of his girls.

Daddy always said " I am a rich man because I am rich in love" and we most definitely are.
He would also ask " What did I do in my life to deserve such incredible daughters " Well Daddy we are the blessed and rich one's because God gave us you.

To say I miss you is the understatement of a lifetime, I think of you every second of everyday.

I love you forever and for always Daddy, till we meet again
Love Always, Your Little Girl

" In my life I love you more "

Es tevi tik ļoti mīlu tēti. Lai tavai dvēselei gaišas smiltis mūžīgi un uz visiem laikiem tēvs.
