Donor Tributes

The Rocky Mountain Lions Eye Bank's mission is to fulfill the wishes of eye donors and their families to help another overcome blindness. The families of the donors below have chosen to honor the legacy left by their loved ones: the legacy of sight given to another through eye donation. Each of these donors moves, humbles and inspires us every day.

In Loving Memory of

John Kossert

February 2002 - December 2010



We were told from the beginning that our John would not live a long life, but we decided to live each day with love and faith. We had almost nine years of loving our John. John had a stroke before he was born and his brain never fully developed so there was a lot he could not do, but he could laugh and giggle and enjoy everyday God gave him and us. We are so happy that John could do something else for someone that is what he did best. He left behind a lot of people who love him dearly and will miss him always. I pray that whoever got the transplant has the best of luck and that all goes well. We are so pleased with how this was handled I would hope many more people will sign donor cards. Thank you letting us know what was done.

Our John was only 8 when we lost him in his short life he touched many hearts he gave love so freely, he will live forever in our hearts.John would be happy with himself to know that he was able to help someone
