I have only just heard about Brent. I will miss him. He always made time for me when I visited Lamar. Whenever I saw him at the fair you couldn't help but have a good time while you were around him. I am very sorry for your loss.

Brent was my 4-H friend. I enjoyed several trips with him including one to Washington, DC and even having him as my date to several school dances. He will be missed by so many. I will treasure the fun memories. You're in my thoughts and prayers. Lynette
