Valentine came to us from a local shelter in the fall of 2003. After spending several weeks in foster care he was adopted into a loving home. His time there was far too short. In less than a year, after a short battle with lung cancer, Valentine quietly left this world.
Valentine’s last year on earth was a life of leisure . He spent his nights snuggled up in bed with his family and his days sniffing out treasures in the backyard. He was a gentle soul with a mischievous streak that got him in trouble from time to time; nevertheless Valentine was a true gentleman. To know him was to love him.
Although he left us far too soon, we are comforted by the fact that in his last year of life he finally knew what it was to be truly loved.
