Michael Valentine Memorial Fund

Update: Thank you everyone for your support!  Because of the overwhelming love and graciousness of so many, we have met our goal for the funeral services funding.  Donations are no longer needed at this time.  Words cannot express are appreciation for your kindness and generosity!

 

Our beautiful Michael left us on January 14th, 2013.  Michael Valentine was only 18 years when he lost his life unexpectedly to a ruptured aorta during surgery.  He was greatly loved and touched so many lives!  To know him was to love him.  He recently graduated from El Rancho High School on the honor roll. He played water polo and loved photography.  He was ready to begin his life with his girlfriend Samantha.  He was truly exceptional and touched so many lives.  Even though's who met him only briefly could tell he was special.  He had an infectious smile, the biggest heart and was the life of the party.  He was a young man of ethics, principals and values beyond his years.  Just two weeks ago he was heard saying 

"I am the happiest I have ever been in my life!".  

The family of Michael Valentine have set up this fund to give him a memorial service worthy of him.  Burial costs are in excess of $10,000.   All donations will be given towards burial costs. 

Your gracious donations big or small would be greatly appreciated as great expressions of love.
