From my cousin Geoff Kent:
Rise up! All you warriors who have assisted in our beloved Maire's battle against Cardiac Sarcoma. Today, Friday, September 27, 2013 at 4:20pm our hero has crossed the finish line hand in hand with her family. Her life has been a victory...Cancer has been overcome and cannot hurt our angel anymore. Now she will stand by all of us who call on her for support, strength and courage. We did not fail her in her fight and she will never abandon us for all eternity. Her spirit lives! The love she has for everyone will increase our own, her strength will bolster our own weakness. Her compassion will soften the hearts of those who know what it is to be a hero for one another. Rest in peace Maire Kent. 4-18-89 to 9-27-13.
RLK here. I should note: she was only the fifth American to suffer from her particular form of sarcoma, the 52nd noted in the history of medicine... and by all indications the longest lived from time of diagnosis. 

She was valiant and true to herself and she sings now with the angels.

God bless you, soldier girl.

 


...and...
