No doubt Kent and her family are having a very solemn Easter Sunday as they remember the day that changed their lives forever.

Kent met with the ‘Hollywood Medium’

When Kent had her reading with Tyler Henry, the Hollywood Medium she asked him a wide range of questions. Questions included her future as a mother, plus of course Henry and Kent discussed Kent’s father.

When Henry connects with Kent’s father, he reveals that Kent’s father wasn’t ready to leave this world. “I wasn’t ready to go, I shouldn’t have gone when I went,” he said.

Kent also gives Henry one of her father’s watches to hold. “I used to buy my dad nice watches all the time,” she said. “But this is the only thing that he would wear,” she said looking at the watch. “I think he got it at WalMart. He would wear it every single day and he loved it. That’s why I’m like, oh that’s my dad.”

She misses him every day

In February, Kent shared a picture of her father on Instagram and discussed her pain. “Tonight you will see a small part of the pain I feel since my dad passed away. I think about him every minute of everyday. I cry often. I still call his phone and leave a message. I do whatever I possibly can to feel peaceful.”

She adds she still has so much to say to him and feels robbed because he’s not physically with her. “And even tho I know he sees me and I know he is close, the selfish part of me wants to scream and yell and say that’s not good enough. I want to see his face. I want to hear his voice.”

Kent also knows her grief will never completely disappear. “I’ve learned that the passing of my dad will never be something that gets easier with time. My heart will never be whole again. My life will always feel emptier than before- but each day I will find new ways to cope a little better.” 

Today is an especially hard day

Easter Sunday marked the one year anniversary of Kent’s dads’ death. She describes getting the news on her Instagram post and how hard that is to reconcile.

“One year ago today I got the worst call of my life,” she wrote. “My little brother called to tell me that our dad had passed away. I’m trying to wrap my mind around the fact that I haven’t seen your face or heard your voice for that long, yet it doesn’t seem that way because you are so engraved in my mind.”

She tries to remain positive. “Today we will celebrate your life,” she continued. “We will remember your beautiful heart and spirit. And when we cry, know that we miss you, but know that our tears also represent the blessings we feel for having you as the king of our family.”
