What a dear, sweet man. How terribly sad for all of you. I pray that you all have peace.

I am so sorry to hear about Kent’s passing. I knew him many years ago when he opened a club in Florence,Ky. called Maximillions. I was a friend of his and enjoyed going on his boat cruising down the Ohio River. He was such a kind person with a gentle heart. He worked hard and loved having fun. I am very saddened to hear about this and I send my sincere sympathy.

I am so saddened by the death of Taylor. He was such a great man. I send you my thoughts at this time. He was always a very dear friend to my brother William. He will be greatly missed.
