Mr. Kent & family... David & I were honored to be your pastor at Bunavista Baptist for several years. Mrs. Kent, was such a lovely, Christian woman. You both worked hard for the Lord & enjoyed fellowshiping at the church. She will be missed here on earth, but we have the assurance of her in the presence of her Lord today! Look to the Lord to get you through these hard times.
