  1. Ron and Craig,
    I am sending you both and your entire family my condolences. I pray for peace for you at this difficult time.

  2. A thousand times we needed you
    A thousand times we cried
    If love alone could have saved you
    you never would have died
    A heart of gold stopped beating
    two twinkling eyes closed to rest
    God broke our hearts to prove he only took the best
    never a day goes by that you’re not in my heart and my soul.

  3. Lisa and family, I am sending my love to all of you at this sad time in your life. We are blessed to have families that are close to us and we can count on. I pray the fond memories of Brent will live on in your heart until the day you see him again. Your friend, Kim

  4. Thank you to everyone who shared their condolences. My uncle was a very loving and caring man, He was always there to lend a hand to someone in need. Since I was a little girl, he was always around to pick on me, to support me, and show me unconditional love. He has left a lasting impression on the lives he has touched including mine and for that I am so grateful. I will never forget the time we shared together especially during the last few months. He never once complained about his situation. Every Time I seen him he had a smile on his face, and that smile is stamped in my memory forever. Anyone who knew my uncle knew that his smile could light up a room and warm hearts. The mold was broken when my uncle was made. He was truely one of a kind! Rest in Peace Uncle Brent! I love you so much and will miss you dearly.

  5. I am very sorry to hear of Brent’s passing. He was a very funny and kind hearted man. He was a good friend to everyone he knew. I hadn’t seen him for several years and ran into him at the gas station about 6 months ago and it was like we had never lost touch. The funny thing was that we lived around the block from each other and didn’t even know it, what a laugh we had about that. I will always remember his laugh and his smile, it lit up his eyes and his whole face and would make anyone smile and feel better. My thoughts and prayers are with all of the family. Rest in peace my friend and soar with the eagles, you will always be in my heart and will never be forgotten.
