IN MEMORY of NANCY KENT DANIELSON

The Kentfield Community lost a gem with the recent passing of Nancy Kent Danielson. Together with her twin sister Marty Kent Eskine, they continued the tradition of making Kentfield, Marin and California a better place. In the Summer Newsletter Kent Erskine shares some  memories of his mother and aunt.
