    Ricky, Gary, Ken (Kenneth or Kenny as Gent used to call you, depending on why or what she was calling you for), I am sorry to hear of Gent’s passing. I’ve recalled some memories of her and one of my favorite is when we were helping Uncle Joshua & Aunt Nancy barn tobacco and for whatever reason that day Aunt Nancy didn’t have lunch prepared for us & Gent wanted some Kannon’s Hot Dogs, so I went & got us some. We sat on the floor in her living room & ate hot dogs until we were stuffed. We moaned about having to get up & go back to the barn. We rolled around on the floor trying to get ourselves up & we burst out laughing. I can see us now and see the look on her face & hear her laughing. I am sorry I could not be at the visitation & service today but know that my family’s thoughts, prayers and love are with you. Take care and God Bless! Love, Bonnie
