My Story

My reason for doing this is to support and remember my baby sister Lisa Kent who passed away at 14. She was always the life of the party living life to the fullest. She was all legs and arms with gorgeous blond hair she tossed about as she talked and teased us. She enjoyed swimming and dancing and was proud to be one of the schools pom pom girls. She would ride down with me in my old volkswagon convertible beetle to keep me company on the 900 mile ride from St. Louis to Raleigh where I was in college. She was a talker which was great because there was no way I would fall asleep during the long 16 ride. Even when she was diagnosed she would go speak to small groups on how important it was to live life to the fullest and not take any time you have for granted! I have tried to follow her advice every day since she has left us. I do this now for her in her honor and to let her know how much I love her! She like so many others were taken so early for reasons only God knows, perhaps as examples to appreciate all he has given and for us not to forget it! So here's to you Lisa we all love you!
