Our sincerest condolences to Marsha, Kent was more than a friend he was my Brother! Almost 30 years of friendship and brotherhood built around a game that we both loved. I was fortunate to have time, before we moved to Tennessee, to have long conversations over good breakfast with good friends! I will cherish those times and the lifetime knowledge of being elected to the MO Capital Area USBC HOF the same year! Much love until me meet again! Shawn and Pam Flanary and Family!
