I got the super sad news from Adam Machanic tonight that Kent Tegels had passed away. At the time I recorded my last podcast with Kent, he seemed to be getting better.
I cannot begin to express how sad I am about this tonight. The SQL and XML communities are weakened by this loss.
Farewell Kent and thanks for all the fish.

Kent was a friend. He was smart and funny. This world is a lesser place without him.
Shocking and sad news. I met Kent many times over the last ten years. It sad to learn that he left us
Kent was a friend and colleague he will be missed. He sure left some big shoes to fill!
What happened? I was a friend of Kent's since around 2003 I had lost touch with him a few years back and had no idea he was ill.
Kent had been unwell for a while. Last year, we thought he was getting better. Sadly, things got worse again.
That is sad news, Kent was a great guy.
I was sadly to hear about this today. I worked with Kent. He was a great guy and always made me laugh. But, most of all he was a mentor. You will be sadly missed.
