Leave Condolences

I will always remember the man who I called dad, as I have had his last name almost my entire life. He raised my brother and I as small children. He is the reason I fell in love with the military, as I went in at 17. All because of him, we learned how to build things & work on cars. And oh yeah...the motorcycle rides!! We sadly fell out of touch through the years, but his influence had always been with me in life. I just found out of his passing. I regret not being able to say goodbye...

When A.J. called yesterday to tell me the sad news of his Dads passing ,I was despondent but also reflected all the great times Ken and I had riding our motorcycles with friends and traveling all over the Midwest together. I can't tell you how sorry I am. I know he loved his children and family I'm sure he felt he didn't have enough time to spend with everybody! Kent wasn't just a great friend, he was a great person! Thanks for the good times Kent- R.I.P.

So sorry to hear of Kent's passing. Our condolences to his family. He was such a good man.

I was so sorry to hear of Kenny's passing. He will be missed so very much. You will be in our thoghts and prayers. May God's peace be with you and guide through the days to come.

We are so sorry to hear of your family's loss. Our prayers are with you for peace during now and moving forward. God Bless - Diana & Derek Foley Austin, TX
