    I am sorry for your loss. May the words of Acts 24:15 and Revelation 21:4 bring comfort to all in grief. These scriptures explain how the dead will be brought back to life and death will no longer exist.

    It is so hard knowing that Kent is no longer with us. I worked for 16 years with Kent at the bank and visited him in his home with my friend Diane. He was always so kind and sweet wherever or whenever you saw him. He will be so missed by all who knew him. My thoughts and prayers for his family and friends.

    To speak of Kent using words like "was" and "had" is heartbreaking... So I choose to say his spirit of kindness and his humor still resonate in this world because they are part of my life... his intelligence goes without saying... and those awesome dancing feet of his are forever embedded in my memory ... gosh we had so much fun working together ... Be at peace my dear friend. Always and forever, Brenda Miller Pool
