I was part of Mrs. Kocher's last kindergarten class at Roosevelt School in 1973-1974 and wanted to pass on my condolences. Ironically, I just found my class picture from that year a few weeks ago. I am very sorry for your loss.

Cat, when you left Kansas City, we were both very sad, but you went to Connecticut and found a whole new wonderful family and a wonderful life. I will miss you forever, in this life. I know your "new" friends and family will also. Everyone who knew you loved you.
