I wanted to post the email response I gave to Tony Conroy, who knew Kent very well, and sent me the note about Kent's passing. I had a few meets with Kent, and only played once with him, but it made an impression. He was a true artisan and had the soul to back it up.

yeah, I heard about it a few weeks ago when Kent was going down slow and I think that a benefit was mentioned, but didn't happen.

Just wishing you a happy birthday. Love and miss you.
