Brent was a lovely person. He was always so friendly and kind. I enjoyed taking care of him at dialysis. We had a connection since I know Kay and Dale as well. I am sorry for your loss and wish you peace.
Brother Cherrington was awesome, he always had a smile on his face and would tell the students he came near a joke or to be serious in our studies.
I enjoyed very much working with Brent. My thoughts and prayers are with the family. We even had one of his granddaughters here at the College.
