There are fond memories of Galene & Kent as they were the eldest niece and nephew of the Gunnell family. I have enjoyed many years of acquaintance with Kent and his siblings and love them all. They have always been kind and thoughtful of their Uncles and Aunts. Death will come to us all eventually and may we be prepared as Kent was to take that next step into eternity.My love to his and all. Uncle Grant
