    Dearest Kent family, I worked with your husband and father over the years at a couple of different industries in the area. We always enjoyed each other and made a mondane job a little fun. We rode to West Virginia about 17 years ago in my little sports car and one of the rear wheels almost came off. Kyle had fun none the less. He was at his best having fun, seriousness about things and life he did not seem to enjoy. God understood his pain and suffering, and takes all that in consideration, Im sure he is with God now, after all God loves all of us no matter how we come to him, please I hope you find comfort in understanding the depth of Gods love and understanding. God bless you all. Emmett

    I am so sorry to hear about Kyle. Kyle and I were friends through high school and spent a lot of time having fun around Clinton and our occasional road trips. I spent a few crazy nights with Kyle and Nate at college. Kyle had a lot of friends there. My wife and I met up with Kyle and Mary at one of the first high school reunions. We had a good laugh that Kyle and Mary brought their black lab with them. My wife and I brought our black lab with us from Florida.

    Our thoughts and prayers go out to the Kent family.
