I stopped for a visit this past Monday upon arriving for work at Stonehill. I was surprised to learn that Kent passed away so quickly. It was his desire to go in peace after struggling to get well for so long. He certainly left all of you as his family some beautiful memories of a life well lived. I am sorry that I could not personally attend his final farewell gathering of family and friends due to my work schedule. I do sympathize with all of you as his family and pray the Lord give his soul restful peace. Stay strong and have strength.
