Thyreal Valentine and Zora Brengettsy said they would have never guessed that when their three close family members fell ill with COVID-19, it would be the end to their lives. “It just all happened at once. It just hit our entire household at once. We were not expecting it to turn out like this. Because we tried our hardest to keep them safe.” Thaddeus Valentine Senior and his two children Thaddeus Valentine Junior and Ta’Mara V. Davis all died within just days of one another.Zora Brengettsy is only 16-years-old. Ta’Mara V. Davis was her mom. “We did not expect to lose any of them. We thought they would all bounce back,” said Brengettsy.Valentine said “All within days of each other. Three weeks in the New Year, and we have already lost half of our immediate family. It is hard because my grandpa, he was always there for me. To wake up and know he is not there, or I cannot call him like I usually do. It is just hurtful.”The girls said their grandfather Thaddeus Valentine Senior was known for his love for community. Serving as chief of the Herbert Wallace Volunteer Fire Department for nearly 20 years. The only black Volunteer Fire Department in the state. He would later become the board president of InclusivCare along Highway 90. It was at InclusivCare where Valentine would recently lead the team in making COVID-19 testing and vaccinations available for members of the community. Dr. Shondra Williams, the CEO of InclusivCare said, “We have been here trying to fight COVID-19. He was largely a part of all of our plans, and ambitions to try to make the community safe.”Williams said the 72-year-old never took the COVID-19 vaccine out of hesitancy. They had a message for those who do not take the virus seriously. Valentine said, “Yeah, we are human and we want to get back to our every day lives. But with this going on we really need to be careful. It does not hit you until it hits home.”Valentine and his two children will be buried on the same day next week at Restlawn Cemetery in Avondale.
