Kemper “Kempie” Cochran

On Saturday night, March 19, 2016, Kempie went home to be with her Heavenly Father. Born in 1966, the short time we had you with us was truly a gift. Words cannot describe what her absence means to those closest to her. She had a loving, kind, and carefree spirit that would make anyone around her feel better and bring a smile to your heart. She gave selflessly, to all. She would try to make others feel better even when her struggle was great. Beautiful and genuine and fun to be with, she never complained and always took care of business. Though we miss you terribly right now, the thought of you fills our hearts with love and joy. I know that heaven is a better place with you in it, because this place is better having had you pass through it. Until we meet again, we will keep alive the sweet memories of you. A celebration of life will be announced at a later date.
