Dear Dad Kent,
I gave you that name because of your love for God and my wife & I. You and Mom Kent gave us spiritual shelter when we needed it most and we could never repay the depth of love you gave us. I fell in love with being your spiritual grandson because I knew I was being blessed to know you, worship with you and sup with you. My heart is broken but I honor God’s sovereignty. I am going to miss our conversations, I am going to miss you. Dad I’ll always love you and give God praise for knowing you. Help me Lord. Goodnight Dad until we meet again.

Dad Kent you gave my family so many wonderful memories. You were there when I lost my grandmother, she called you her baby brother.

You were there when Juan and I needed Godly, biblical and applicable sound advise. You and I shared a sweet tooth that was hard to cure :) Most of all you shared you, never too busy and always with a smile. I am missing you and hearing you say while Bishop was preaching " Thank Ya Sir" I just miss you. Thank you for holding on until I made it to see you. Forever and Ever in my heart. I love you Dad Kent.
