Keri, Please know you and your family are in my prayers. Unkle Kent will always be one of a kind. Everytime I see a canoe, I think of his insistent adventures of getting us in the water, even if the water was reallly low and our hull would drag or for just a few hours after Rebekah's wedding! I will miss his humurous banter. Dad sent me a picture you found of my 26th birthday card. I always enjoyed hearing from Unkle Kent; I am glad to have known him. I don't know when we started calling him Unkle Kent but we always pointed out it being spelled with a K. Thankful for his testimony of knowing Jesus and that we will all rejoice together again one day. Love and prayers, rachel (richards) collier

I was a longtime friend of Kent’s. We were in the Veterans Club at SMSU and worked together on many projects. Both of us were Vietnam Veterans. I always enjoyed his posts on Facebook. Not many of us left anymore. Prayers for his family.??

Keri, Your father was my cousin and I love him with all my heart. His last text to me, a few days ago, was regarding the adoption of your baby girl. All my love and sympathy to your family.
