Sam Valentine (1947-2010) - Rest in Peace

Today I attended a memorial service for a friend and neighbour here in Spain. I have known Sam and his wife Sandra for about 4 years, since soon after I arranged to purchase a home here, as both our homes were being built at the same time. Sam was a kind, gregarious and very humorous man, a native of Manchester and he and Sandra came to live permanently in Spain in preparation for the completion of their home, which they were able to enjoy together for the last few years. Sam had been quite ill for some months, but remained unfailingly cheerful and determined. He went too soon. Sam will be missed, but fondly remembered.
