    Hello, my name is Salieda Meeks. Lyent was like an uncle to my brother and I. I have known him practically almost all of my life. I could say many great things about Lyent but that would take up a page or two... So I will leave the family with my deepest symphony for the loss of such a dedicated, well respected and greatly loved individual! However, we know he no longer feels discomfort nor does have a worried mind. Lyent has risen to a place full of beauty and grace! I love you Uncle Lyent & you will never be forgotten....

    Lyent Hogue, loved life, he enjoy teaching others on the significant on how to succeed in life and the pitfalls when you derail off track. He will be deeply missed by all who knew him but its wittiness of encouragement will not be forgotten. My prayers of condolences goes out to the entire Hogue family.

    I met Lyent after he became the husband to my extended family's daughter Gloria. I became drawn to him because the voice inside him came out as that of a belove passed brother. Many time we find uniquness in each other, I found him to be a person I would have loved to know better, but to me he was as rarely seem as an Eclipse. He was such a positive person and very well liked, by everyone he came in contact with. He will be surely miss by all who knew him, we will see you at The Cross Road Lyent to point us in the direction you travelled through Heaven Gates. You belong to him now, mind, body, and soul.
