Days before Ken Valley died he expressed concern about the state of the nation and the Opposition PNM.
This is according to Diego Martin Central MP Dr Amery Browne in a telephone interview yesterday. "Mr Valley expressed concern about the state of the nation and the party," Browne added. Browne said he last saw Valley at his home about 48 hours before he died yesterday morning with colon cancer at age 63.
Browne said he was "deeply saddened" by Valley's passing.
He said Valley as a politician was an excellent example to any young aspiring politician in the country.
Browne said he remembers the day when Valley held his hand and told constituents of Diego Martin Central that the PNM torch was "now passed to me." Browne said Valley always remained in contact with him, giving valuable advice over the past years. "His advice was very valuable to me," Browne added. Browne said he will always remember Valley as "a giant of a man in many respects."
