Neil Gochee was a brave young 18yr old man who was raising his younger 13yr old brother Lyndel when he was called up. His tragic death was very traumatic for Lyn and Neil was sadly missed and mourned Lyn's entire life. May he rest in peace knowing he was loved always. May they be reunited once more.
