I do know without a doubt that the first words he would breathe before saying anything else would be “thank you.” So I tell you on behalf of my brother Kent, my family, and myself, “thank you.”
Kent had not lived in Kansas City in twenty years therefore so many of you traveled great distances to be here with us today and we are so very grateful that you have made the journey, “thank you.”
I know from reading and hearing so many stories these past few weeks that there are many people here today that were also affected by Kent’s love and because of that effect, Kent’s love for us – we are all better people. There is no way to measure how his presence in this world improved our lives, the lives we touch, and so on. I would like say “thank you” to my brother – “thank you” for your life, your love, and your sacrifice for us.
