My deepest sympathy to the Kocher clan. Uncle Don always had a wonderful smile and he always loved his family and cared about all of them. He was a kind and gentle man. He cared about his nieces and nephews, as well as their family. May he rest in peace and enjoy everlasting life with his wife, Aunt Shirley, and his little girl, Susie, as he awaits the rest of his clan in time. You all will find comfort in the memories you have made with your Dad. Do not cry at this time, for your Dad is at peace and is happy and had a wonderful long life.. God Bless you all and be at peace knowing your Dad is always in your heart. Love & Prayers to you all.
