Not sure what to say?

Claudia and I extend our love and prayers to Michael's entire family. I cannot begin to say all of the good things I remember about Mike and our undergraduate experiences at Regis. He was a good frat brother and a close friend in college.

I had the unique opportunity to train with Mike as a surgery resident at IMMC then be his colleague in Des Moines for 20+ years. I found him to be extremely compassionate, knowledgable and kind, a true "Gentleman Surgeon". I am so sad to hear of his passing. May God Bless him and your family.

I am deeply saddened to learn of Dr. Kent's passing. He was my doctor for many years i thought it was strange when I called in May to make an appointment with him only to be told he was no longer seeing patients. I will never forget him and everything he has done
for me. May your memories give you strength through this difficult time. His wonderful personality will be missed!! -Summer

Cecelia, In the short time we have known your family,you have all become like family to us. Mike will be deply missed. We love you all, Mike &Robin Murphy

We were introduced to Mike and Cecilia in Steamboat Springs many years ago by his sister, Jody and brother-in-law, George Briner. It was obvious to us that Mike was much loved and we know he will be greatly missed.

Wanting to send our heartfelt prayers to your family. Dr. Kent took care of both our Dad and our Mother, and his care and concern for them both deeply touched us. We will never forget his kindness. May you all find comfort in the memories close to your hearts. Bud Schumann, Jodi McGee and family, Jill Gray and family.

Cecelia and family, I was saddened to learn of Mike's passing. Even though we've been away from DSM for 12 years I will always be grateful for my friendship with Mike-both personal and professional. He was a nice guy, conscientious Dr. as well as caring family man. Mike will be truly missed in so many ways. Our prayers and condolences to you and all your family from Savannah, GA.

I worked with Dr Kent for many years as a nurse at Iowa Lutheran and also at Iowa Clinic. He was a wonderful person and physician. His smile and humor were contagious. He is missed.

Dr. Kent was such a dear friend to my parents. I know that he was an inspiration to everyone he knew. Sending prayers for comfort and peace... Jessica (Schickler) Roth
