I remember as a little girl his smile and soft touch. I didn’t get to see him often but when I did he would lower his face to look at mine and place his hand softly on my shoulder and smile. I will never forget the warmth and love he gave me. Tio you will be missed.
The Briones brothers will never be forgotten

I will always remember my Tio Valente as a strong, funny and family oriented man; full of history, laughter and intelligence. He was a hard working man whose eyes could light up a room or he could quiet you with that "look", lol. I will miss your reminiscing and your jokes, my heart aches for you but I know you are now home. Fly high Tio, you are gone but will never be forgotten.
