I wanted to leave a note here of thanks on behalf of our family. Many, many years ago, my mother, Virginia Carter, went to work for Moe in the Berlin Police Department. At the time it was a family joke, because my mother was the most naive person that most people would ever know. The transition into the realities of life was made a whole lot easier because she had a very kind and caring boss. She had great respect for him and it was comforting to our family. Nancy Gentry
Just heard about the passing of Sgt. Valentine. Sarge had such an influence on my life as a young man. I knew I was going to be a police officer, and Sarge helped form the Berlin Police Explorers which had such a profound impact in my life. He was such a positive force in my life and all the rest of us in the Explorers. He taught me many lessons that I have used throughout my 30 year law enforcement career. You made a difference Sarge.
