I am saddened at the loss of a very special and spiritual man. He gave my son Daniel his patriarchal blessing before his mission. He was my Bishop in the 3rd ward a have a lot of fond memories of him. He will be missed and may God Bless all his family. Love Gay.

I'm sad to hear of Bishop Kemp's passing. I just pulled out some of my old mission things for one of my sons and found a recommend with his signature for my mission. Looked him up and found this. One of the best men I've ever known. Love.

I saw Bishop Kemp a few weeks ago at Publix, Northbridge, we spoke and I gave hm a quick hug. Had I known it was our last hug, I would have hugged him a little longer. He and his lovely wife, Gail, have been a wonderful inspiration in my life. I will miss him so very much. Whenever he saw me in church, he would say "Church looks good on you, and we need to see you more often." My heart goes out to Gail, his children, his church family and all who knew and loved him.

I am truly saddened at the loss of Brother Kemp. He made such a difference in my life not only as my Bishop, but as a wonderful example of a loving Father figure. I love you all and want you to know that my thoughts are with you at this time. May Heavenly Father bless you all with comfort and peace.

Bishop Kemp was a wonderful example to me when I was first learning about the Church. He welcomed me often into his home and was there for my Baptism. I loved hearing him talk about the scriptures. His knowledge was amazing. He loved and LIVED the gospel and he will be missed by all who knew him. Your family will always be in my prayers. Thank goodness for eternal families. Love, Denise

Bro. Kemp was always kind and wise. I loved hearing him speak. It seemed like he always remembered my name, too. The Kemp family is very dear and he will be very missed. Peace to all of you. Sam and Suzan Wilson

GGpa Kemp was so easy to love. Always had a joke and a story to tell. Such a sweet man, I enjoyed all of my few encounters with him. He will be missed.
