A very beautiful lady. Her eyes are intriguing. Thanks for sharing this photo with us, Sandra!

Thank you. I think she is beautiful too. I wish I would have known her. From what her family in the US tells us she was funny and talented. She liked celebrating Holliday’s, especially Christmas. What’s ironic about that is my Dad, her son Walter, remembers as a young tee, around age 13, looking through windows of homes during Christmas to see families celebrating and admire the bright lights. He was abandoned by his father and grew up most of hid childhood alone. So he never knew what it was like to celebrate Christmas with family until he married our mother and had his own family. Valentina liked to paint too. Her paintings were well done. And in another odd twist of rate, one of my Father’s favorite past times is painting. They also tell us Valentina she dressed well and carried herself like a princess. They had a nickname for her, Czarian Valentina.
I think this is a wonderful story. You should include this on on Valentina’s profile in the “Memories” section.
Thank you. I will do that.
