I will remember Kent for his kind heart (he was generous to a fault), his love of animals, and his ability to strike up a conversation with anyone.

I am so thankful that Tess and I were able to celebrate his 60th birthday with Kent, Dixie, Donna and Karen, He was thrilled that his four "favorite" cousins were there to celebrate with him. He will be missed, but is in a better pain free place.
