Michael, When you created the most beautiful floral tributes for my Dad's funeral. I told you in person how much you meant to me and taught me. I have held you deep in my heart for so many years. You taught me everything I know about design and lighting. You truly were the Light of my life! All of my success in my Lighting business today is because of you. My eyes are filled with tears as I write this, I will never forget those wonderful days on Church St. filled with laughter and your teaching me the true art of design! You truly were an amazing man and I will continue to hold you deep in my heart forever. Now, with that said, I can't wait to see what you will do to redesign Heaven's pearly gates! Your friend and fan forever, Tom Crowley - Fort Lauderdale, FL

In loving memory of Michael Valente
I miss him dearly. So many beautiful memories. I love the way my uncle had such an innate sense of seeing others and the world in a different way. Michael always had kind words and was a gentle and happy spirit. Michael loved people, nature, art, family and friends. He loved life and his job and had infectious laughter. You were one in a million Michael you saw good and beauty in everything. We love you and miss you. Uncle Mike you were super talented and it was always a pleasure to be in your presence. Were are all blessed to have you as a beautiful soul that showed us kindness and love. Bob my heart goes out to you thank you again for your dedication, loyalty and love. God Bless Michele

I met Michael 35 years ago at a lunch party at his home. We didn't know each other all that well but whether on Church Street, an event or a MS Fundraiser Bike ride he always greeted me warmly as an old friend. Thoughts go out to you Bob and Family. Dave

What an artist! I didn't know Michael well, but I was always happy to see his smiling face on Church Street. Sad to see him go.
