    I was sorry to hear of Brent's passing. It seemed so sudden. I had the privilege of visiting Brent and Burt each month as their ministering brother from the Church. I was always treated kindly by both and enjoyed visiting with them. Brent seemed like a very caring person and I know that family meant everything to him. May you find comport in knowing that he lived a good life and that he is with family now. I am sure that he is enjoying being with those of his family who have passed on before and they are so happy to see him.

    I knew Brent, in his last years and not terribly well, because Bert, who lived with him, was my home teaching companion. But I saw that Brent was not afraid to make decisions, and to carry them out. The decisions I saw were made in kindness, based on love for others, and in response to the necessities of life. He blessed those around him. I have a hunch that when he meets the Savior, it will be with open arms.
