Condolence: Dear Rhonda, no words can express the sorrow I feel for you losing the love of your life, I hate this beast of a disease we are both witness to.. I pray that you find joy and peace in the beautiful memories you made together.. sending our love from Australia dear friend x
Condolence: I was a small child when Kent ran X-Country for my dad at Beaver River and I remember dad speaking very fondly of him. I was re-acquainted with Kent a few years back at the X-C program's 50th anniversary and have enjoyed his long-distance friendship ever since. He was a very kind and genuine person. I offer my sincere condolences to his family and friends.
Condolence: Rhonda, thank you for seeing Kent through his dream trip to Alaska. It meant the world to him I am sure. Our condolences to you and your family. As you know, Kent and I tried to get together but it seems it was not to be due to life's circumstances. I miss him but will always carrying fond memories of him. Rest in Peace Kent, God has you in his loving hands.
Condolence: The love and memories given by Kent is a blessing. His commitment and tenacity was a rare find. Respect came naturally, whether it was the first time you met or knew him for decades. I admire Kent for his patience and lessons taught in raising two beautiful children, along with the dedication and love to his marriage. He is no longer in front of us, but will be with us for life. Find strength and comfort in knowing he served a purpose; one in which God planned for all of us to reflect.
Condolence: For such a active man it is hard to think I will not see him again, but I will see all that he has touched in his life, including me. From when I worked at the Preschool Learning center, to working in the High School, I knew I could always call on him for assisting, to doing different activities in the community where he be volunteering or to when I just ran into him on the street and talking. What a great person who will be missed. Prayers for the family as they go through this. A hole in the community has been made and memories are left in its wake.
