Dear Lisa,Christy, Tom and Betsy,
HOW VERY DIFFICULT IT IS NOW FOR ALL OF YOU AS YOU CONTINUE TO GO FORWARD WOTH YOUR LIVES, DAY AFTER DAY AND YET THE HUGE HOLE IN YOUR HEARTS , WHICH IS KAI SEEMS TO BE ALL THAT IS IMPORTANT. SOMETIME , I WOULD WONDER AFTER MY FIRST SON JEFDFREY DIED, IN 2007, WHY PEOPLE CONTINUED TO BEHAVE AS THEY HAD PREVIOUSLY TO MY SONS DEATH. I WONDERED WHY I WOKE UP EACH MORNING. I COULDN'T UNDERSTAND HOW THE WORLD CCOULD FUNCTION AND HOPW I WAS EXPECTED TO FUNCTION WITHOUT MY BELOVED SON. IT TOOK SO VERY MUCH STRENGTH , PRAYER SUPPORT AND LOVE FROM MY FAMILY TO REALIZE I WOULD SURVIVE THIS MOST TERRIBLE THING THAT CAN HAPPEN TO A PARENT. THE LOSS OF A CHILD. I PRAYED TO THE LORD FETRVENTLY, BEGGING HIM NOT TO LET ANY ONE I KNEW LOSE A CHILD AND SUFFER THE PAIN I AND MY FAMILY WAS SUFFERING OVER JEFFERY'S DEATH. I EVREN SAID TO THE LORD 'TAKE ANOTHER OF MY CHILDREN RATHER THAQN LET ANY ONE I KNOW EXPERIENCE THIS CRUSHING TRAGEDY' WELL. YOU KNOW WHAT HAPPENED. CHRISTMAS DAY, 2011, JEFFREY'S BROTHER, JONATHON, MY YOUNGEST SON DIED IN AN ACCI DENT. HOW COULD SOMETHING LIKE THIS HAPPEN? HADNT I BEEN THRU ENOUGH? fINDING OUT ABOUT THE DEATH OFyour precious KAI, MY GREAT-NEPHEW FELT LIKE BOTH MY SONS HAD DIED ALL OVETR Again. I was so terribly angry at









GOD how could he take my









































LISA'S SON.? KAI WAS MY BROTHER TOM'S GRANDSON MY NIECE CHRISTY ADORED HIM. MY SISYTER IN LAW BETSY, WHO HAD BEEN THERE FOR ME SO MUCH THRU THE DEATHS OF MY TWO BOYS. NO GOD. IT IS NOT FAIR? IT IS NBOT TRUE IT IS NOT FAIR, THEN I COULD HEAR MY LONG DEPARTED VERY MUCH LOVED DADDY SAYING WHO SAID LIFE WAS FAIR. WHAT CAN YOU DO TO HELP THEM NANCY> I HOPE TO HAVE GIVEN YOU SOME SUPPORT AND STRENGTH THRU THIS TERRIBLE ORDEAL. PLEASE KNOW HOW VERY MUCH I LO0VE YOU ALL I WILL ALWAYS BE HERE FOR ALL OF YOU ANBD I AM SO VERY PROUG OF THE WAY YOU ARE ALL BEING ABLE TO CARRY ON YOUR LIVES THAT WERE CHANGED, AS MINE WAQXS, IN THE BLIKK OF AN EYE

Today would have been your 7th birthday, little firefighter. We all have tears on this day, some shed, some unshed, some still waiting to be unleashed in private. Some thoughts and sadnesses are shared, some are not and are held dear to our own hearts, desperately holding on to the privacy of our pain in losing you so young. What is sure is that all of us who loved you, your laugh, your excitement for life, and your possession of the kindest spirit anyone could have ever encountered miss and love you more than you could have ever known here. I know that God is right there with you, celebrating you and your joyous existence, just as He is helping us with your loss. Happy birthday with all of my love, little dude.
March 05, 2014
Happy Birthday, my little love! I know every day is a party with Jesus for you now, but I remember this day 7 years ago. Your mommy was a hero! CJ was the first one to catch you when you were born and we all celebrated! What a gift you were and are to us. I love you, baby. Your grandma
March 05, 2014
How I wish you were here to celebrate your 7th birthday. I still can't believe you are gone. It still seems so unreal. But somehow I know that there are no accidents with God. I hope you have a happy birthday in heaven, peanut. I miss and love you more. Mommy
February 16, 2014
My dearest little Love Bug, I want so badly to turn the calendar back a year and a day! But that wouldn't be fair to you, would it. I try so hard to remember that God knew best a year ago today but I miss you miss you miss you every second! You filled us all up with your joy and love! I try to imagine how you shine now!! I love you, baby - more every day, your grandma
February 16, 2014
Dear Kai,
On this 1 year anniversary, I am thankful for the honor to have been aunt to such a beautiful, sweet, smart, and kind little guy that you were, though the time was too short. I echo your Grandpa in that you were just too good for this earth. Your kindness and sweetness to everyone, even if it wasn't reciprocated, is such an inspiration.
One of my favorite stories about you is one that your Mom told me. She said that you were riding the train and you jumped up to sit next to a homeless person whom nobody else would dare near, much less sit next to. You sat right next to him, struck up a conversation, not even noticing that he was perhaps an outcast, thereby demonstrating your love for everyone regardless of their appearance, social standing, or any other factor that may scare another away. You were truly one of a kind.
Although you are so sorely missed and always will be, you will never be forgotten and we all look forward to seeing you again soon. I love you, little guy, and I look forward to the time we meet again.
February 16, 2014
Lisa, Betsy, Tom and Christy...
Today you are in my heart and head more than usual. I am sending you all good energy, light and love.
February 15, 2014
Dear Kai,
You are so greatly missed by your mom, your grandma, and your grandpa, who is my brother, Tom. We al look forward too the day we can join you and my sons, your almost cousins JON and JEFF who are right there with you. How I wish I had met you and had the pleasure of getting to know you. Please know you MAMA and Grandpa and Grandma are going to be okay. They miss you so terribly much. When you left this earth for Heaven, a huge hole was left in the hearts of the many people who loved you and will continue to love you. One day I will meet you in Heaven. What an honor that will be.
LOVE, Your Great-Aunt NANCY SWEET-ADAMS
February 14, 2014
Dear Kai,

I love you more than ever and miss you terribly. God took you just one year ago to be with Him in Heaven. Your kindness and goodness were too kind and good for this earth. Heaven is a better place because you are there making everyone happy. I can't wait to see you again in Heaven. Love, Grandpa
February 10, 2014
Your grandma reminded me this morning of something you used to ask her. The answer is yes, you made me very happy when I was sometimes sad. You always made me feel better. I wish you could make me feel better now. I wish I could have one more hug. Well, maybe not. One hug would never be enough. I love you more and more and more. Mommy
February 05, 2014
You left a giant hole where my heart once was. I love you dearly. Mommy
January 28, 2014

My darling little Doodle Bug, I think about you every second of every day. Today I was thinking how much I miss the big green tarp covered with your tools and the building materials you collected when we walked around Coral Gables. What are you busy designing and creating in Heaven? I miss you so much!! I love you always, Grandma
January 06, 2014
I miss you, peanut. Trying to be brave... I hope you are proud of me. I love you more. Mommy

December 25, 2013
Dear Tom,Betsy and Lisa, Christy and C.J.
ou all are in my prayers as I know personally how very difficult this holiday season is when your Child wont be there because he is spending Christmas with Jesus this year. In my case 2 of my boys are spending Christmas and all of eternity with our Lord. Someday, all of us will join them. This is a thought that has helped me considerably dealing with the pain I have in losing my 2 sons. I pray you all find some measure of peace today.With much love, Your Aunt and sister, NANCY SWEET-ADAMS
December 25, 2013
Dear Kai,
It is Christmas today. Grandma and I are visiting your special place down here to talk to you and pray. However, you are in a much better place forever in Heaven. We miss you and love you so much! I look forward to your greeting me there. Love, Grandpa
December 24, 2013
Kai Kai, there are no words that could ever begin to express the sorrow of your absence. It hurts to even type these words. I know you are having a beautiful Christmas in heaven. Every day is a day closer... Love, Mommy
December 03, 2013
May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.

My peanut, I cried and cried for you last night in your playroom. Your toys are there waiting for you. Kiwi misses you so much that he is plucking out his feathers and he has been calling your name again. I need you so much and I miss you more with every passing minute. When does it stop getting worse? I think only when we are together again. Each day that passes, each day I struggle to get through, is one day less that I have to wait to be with you again and to hold you. I miss your beautiful smile. I wish you could meet Miss Bob Marley. You would love her and she would jump all over you and give you big kisses. Buster looks so sad and worried. He told me he misses you. I hope you know every moment in heaven that I love you more. Mommy
November 22, 2013
Hello my darling little doodle bug. I wish I could say I'm getting used to you being in Heaven, but I can't. Every day, every minute I miss you more and more. At least I know you now have what you longed for here - the freedom to be the boy God created you to be. That makes me happy! Guess what? Remember how badly you wanted me to have a kitty? You won't believe this but I have one. A little stray came to your mommy's door and I couldn't resist bringing her to the apartment. In fact I suspect you asked Jesus to send her just as you asked Him to send me a beautiful green and blue parakeet right after you went to Heaven. She's so cute and funny. She has the same kind of joyful energy that you always brought with you. I named her Sami Bear. Wow, I used to think you made quite a mess of this place but you should see what this tiny little kitty does! She really makes a huge mess. But I love her. Thank you my very precious boy for sending her. I love you so much, more than you can imagine, your Grandma
November 16, 2013
Dear Family, Please know Our Lord and Savior has our three boys in Heaven. What a terribly hard day this is Lisa. Please know I understand more than anyone else can and my dear niece our Lord is with you. You will see you son again. I know how lame that sounds, even to me as I write it., I am crying, thinking and hoping for the time I will again embrace Jeffrey and Jonathon. It makes it no easier now tho., does it. My heart and prayers are always with you, sweetie. I love you so. I am so sorry. Love, Aunt Nancy
November 11, 2013
What a beautiful picture of your grandson,Kai. Oh Tom,and Betsy my heart goes out to you and my precious niece Lisa in the loss you have experienced. Christy, C.J. our whole family has the knowledge that we will one day see our 3 sons who are now with the Lord. With so much love, your sister and Aunt, Nancy Sweet-Adams
November 08, 2013
Dearest Kai,

I love you so much and miss you so much. I know that you are having a great time in Heaven. I so look forward to seeing you up there. Love, Grandpa
October 12, 2013
Dearest Lisa,Tom.Betsy,Christy and C.J.
Having been thru the loss of two children myself I know that this month and the next several for me were particularly difficult. However, Lisa, please know that things do get easier to bear and you will find that somewhere around the 14th month you will actually smile and almost laugh. This happened following the deaths of both of my sons, your cousins Jeff and Jonathon. It didn't happen often but it was such an unbelievable feeling and something I never ever felt would happen again. I know the heartbreak you are all experiencing now and that pain and loneliness never does leave, at least it has not left me but the Lord has a way of making it bearable and providing you with the strength and the courage to continue to get up in the morning, and face each day when it seems so very difficult. Pretty soon His arms which have been wrapped around all of you become almost visible to you because of the strength they provide. And your precious KAI will be so happy to know his mommy and aunt and brother and grandpa and grandma are beginning to be able to smile once in a while. You were such a loving mother to your son Lisa and he was such a wonderful beautiful little guy. I just know our sons are together with Oma and Opa and they are so happy. It is us who hurt so very badly. I love you so much Lisa and am brokenhearted for all of you and for all of us. I pray for you constantly that you will continue to find strength in the Lord. It is so very hard, the path we both, and your parents, and Christy and C.J. have to walk. Losing a child is the most difficult thing a person can endure as I am sure you now realize. I love you so much.

My beautiful little guy,
Your Mommy wrote this week of our tea cup ride in December at Disney on her blog dedicated to you, myangelkai.com. Not only will I never forget your infectious laughter, shrieks of delight, and utter joy, but I will hold those so close, knowing that you are exponentially more joyful now.
Please ask God to put his arms around your Mommy and Grandma, as well as the rest of us, as we will always miss you too much. I love you, little dude.
September 19, 2013
DEAR LISA TOM BETSY AND CHRISTY,
My prayers are with you all at this most heartbreaking time. I know how very difficult it is at this time. 7 months since our precious KAI was taken from this earth. How very unfair it seems to those of us who have also lost our dear children. My darling niece, I PRAY the LORD will give you a measure of peace in your heart. I know this seems impossible to believe that this could one day happen but I do speak from experience, as you know. I, like you am still waiting for that peace with my second loss of my son JON. Dear Lisa, I pray you feel the arms of our LORD AND SAVIOR wrapping around and holding you tight. I know only too well the ache in your heart for your BELOVED son. I Would do anything I COULD TO TAKE IT AWAY.
WITH SO VERY MUCH LOVE AND SYMPATHY
AUNT NANCY
September 16, 2013
My darling sweetie peetie pie, I miss you more every day! I know you have been set free from the box of time, but you've been free for 7 months now and we are still stuck here missing you! My darling boy, you gave me such joy. I just flat out had fun with you! Remember when I discovered that you kept running to the water fountain in the "scooter park" to fill your mouth with water so you could mix "cement"? You were so clever. You amazed me every day. I can't wait to be where you are, my little love - where everything shines with His beauty and glory and all is joy. I'm so happy for you! But oh my, your grandma misses you!
September 01, 2013
Looking at the pictures of precious KAI, I could not help but notice his smile, Lisa. KAI had the most incredible smile and I can just imagine the joy he brought with him each time he entered a room. MY beautiful niece ,Lisa, I am so heartbroken over your tremendous loss of your precious son. I pray that you will find some peace and comfort in Jesus, our Lord and Savior .Aunt Nancy
August 28, 2013
Although I never met Kai, I know that he was the light of the world to many of his family members. Please accept my deepest condolences on your great loss. May you find some comfort in knowing that Kai is now an angel in heaven as he was on earth. I pray that God bring peace to all your family today and all the days to come. Peace be with you.
August 28, 2013
DEAR LISA , MY HEART IS BROKEN FOR YOU. NOTHING IS WORSE THAN THE LOSS OF A CHILD. OUR THREE, KAI, AND JEFF AND JONATHON ARE IN HEAVEN, LOOKING DOWN ON US AND WANTING US TO MOVE ON WITH OUR LIVES. OUR THREE SONS DO NOT WANT US SUFFERING FOR THEIR SAKE,BUT NEITHER WOULD THEY CHOOSE TO RETURN TO EARTH. WHEN I REALIZED THAT WITH JEFFREY IT HURT ME, HURT ME ALOT. BUT I KNEW IT Was true and I could feel him telling me "MOM, I AM OKAY AND I NEED YOU TO GO ON AND BE OKAY". JEFFREY HAD BEEN GONE MUCH LONGER THAN OUR KAI OR JONATHON, ALMOST 2 YEARS, BUT HE CLEARLY TOLD ME THIS AND FROM THAT POINT ON WE TALKED DAILY AS IF HE WAS WALKING WITH ME ,SITTING WITH ME RIGHT NEXT TO ME AND I TOTALLY ACCEPTED HIS DEATH. IT WAS SO GOOD FOR ME. I HAVEN'T COME TO THAT POINT WITH JONATHON YET AND I KNOW YOU HAVENT WITH KAI. YOU AND I STILL HAVE THAT RAW ACHING THAT IS SO PRESENT CONSTANTLY. IT FEELS LIKE IT WILL NEVER BE OKAY AGAIN. I KNOW ONLY BECAUSE OI HAVE BEEN THRU THIS WITH JEFFREY THAT THERE WILL COME A TIME DOWN THE LINE WHEN YOU WILL GO 20 MINUTES AND REALIZE YOU DID NOT THIS ABOUT KAI. IT IS POSITIVELY AMAZING. I REMEMBER ASKING JACK WIULL I EVER GO 20 MINUTES WITHOUT THINKING ABOUT JEFFREY? {JACK IS A WIDOWER, REMEMBER} HE SAID YES, AND YOU MIGHT EVEN FEEL GUILTY, BUT SHOULDNT. SURE ENOUGH, I DIID GO 20 MINUTES, THEN AN HOUR THEMN A HALLF A DAQY THEN A WHOLE DAY.. I STILL MISS JEFF TERRIBLY, JUST NOT THE SAME FIREY RAW ACHE. WE WILL BOTH GET THERE LISA. YOU HAD A WONDERFUL LITTLE GUY I HAD TWO WONDERFUL BIGGER GUYS. I THANK THE LORD FOR BEING THEIR MOTHER AS I AM SURE YOU DO FOR BEING KAI'S MOM. IT WAS JUST WAY TOO SHORT A TIME
August 28, 2013

I just received this picture of CJ and you from Mommy. What a beautiful picture of my wonderful grandsons. I love you and miss you so much. Love, Grandpa
August 16, 2013
My Papito Lindo ... My little Kai Kai .... It has been so difficult to find the heart and strength to write to you here since the first day this page went up, I just could not find the words in amidst of the heartache.... Today marks six months since you left us. I miss you more dearly with each passing day. I remember and cherish the times we went to the music store or went to Tae Kwan Do and our special trip to the bakery every Saturday after TKD. I try desperately to honor your name and not lose myself in the sorrow of all the events that have taken place but focus to regain who I once was and persevere to remember and take joy in the good moments we had. Its so hard without you but I will make things right if at least for you if not for everyone as well as myself, by living as I/we all should have lived. My love for you is undying and I will see you again soon my Kai Kai and we'll play "attack" again like we did when you were here! Your Daddy
August 16, 2013
My darling doodle bug, you have some nerve! Remember how you raced me everywhere we went and you always managed to beat me? Well, you won the ultimate race, you rascal! I'm smiling thinking of all our wonderful times together. You wore me out sometimes but oh my did we have FUN! I love you with every fiber of my being, miss you every minute and can't wait to run, sing and dance with you in the amazing joy and love of God's actual Presence! I love you now and always, Grandma
August 14, 2013
Dearest Kai,

As the end of the sixth month since the day of your ascent to Heaven approaches I just want to tell you again how much I love you and how much I miss you each and every day. The memories that I have of our times together are so wonderful and with God's help they keep me going. I so look forward to you greeting me at the Gate of Heaven. Love always, Grandpa
July 20, 2013
Dear Lisa, Betsy and Tom, May God's Grace, Power, and Love, comfort,and uphold you until the day we are all reunited in joy and our Lord wipes away our tears In Christ's Love

My darling, it's 5 months tomorrow that you left us. I miss you every minute. I wish you were here so I could kiss your sweet face every morning and every night like I used to. Things will never be the same without you in the world. But one thing will never change. I will always be your Mommy and you will always be my peanut.
June 26, 2013

May 30, 2013
Everything I do is for you, my shining star. You are my inspiration. I love you more every day. Love, Mommy
May 30, 2013
Dearest Kai,

I miss you more and more each day that passes. Every time I pass the "pumpkin slingshot" on Route 202 I think of what fun we had last Fall trying to hit the target. I wish that I had bought dozens of more punmpkins so that we would have gotten one through the hole in the target. I know that you are the best pumpkin slingshot guy in Heaven. I love you so much and look forward to the day when we can hit the target together in Heaven.

Love, Grandpa
May 29, 2013
I miss you so much today, my precious little doodle bug. I'd give anything to hear you say "right grandma?" But I know we'll get to play forever when I join you! I love you!!!!!!!!!!

KAISITO I MISS YOU A LOT,ALWAYS YOU BE WITH ME EVEN WHEN I KNOW THAT YOU ARE IN A VERY SPECIAL PLACE NEAR TO OUR CREATOR.AM YOUR "INO"FOREVER. LAZAROS
April 10, 2013
Dearest Lisa,

I am touched by Mom's tribute to you of this date. As your Dad, I fully agree with everything that Mom said about your wonderful mothering of our dear Kai. You met his needs in every way and he often told me how much he loved you. When he was up North with us he would tell me proudly that he was going to tell "Mommy" how he had mastered the playground equipment or accomplished another task. He was so proud of you! He loved you with all of his heart and you deserve all of that love because you were and are a wonderful mother. Love, Dad
April 10, 2013
My beloved Lisa, you were (and still are) such a wonderful mom to your little peanut. He was so blessed to have the kind of mommy who could understand who he truly was (and still is). He loved you so very dearly and still does. I've no doubt that he asks Jesus every day to put a smile on your face, just as you put a smile on his face every day of his sweet life. I love you so much! My mother heart breaks for you! You're in my heart and arms every single moment of every single day.
April 04, 2013
Dearest Kai,

I posted 3 more pictures of you in the book today. You loved your brothers, C.J. and Keanu, and you loved C.J.'s good friend, Danny. They loved you so much and were so good to you. I think of you every time I pass the "little playground" and the "big playground" in Chatham. We had such fun there when you would come up North with Grandma. I love you so much and miss you terribly. I have the certainty that you will be the first one to greet me when I arrive in Heaven. My love forever, Grandpa
March 26, 2013
My dearest darling boy, I miss you so very much! Your love and joy, boundless energy and constant questions filled my life with sunshine every single day! The essence of amazing wonderful you will stay with me always. I know when I get to heaven, it will seem as if it was only yesterday that you were driving your fire truck around the block stopping to put out fires. Speaking of your fire truck, you'll be glad to know I just drove it a bit. I'm keeping it in good shape just as you did. I love you my Kai-kai with every little piece of my heart!! Have fun today in Heaven!
March 23, 2013
Lisa and Frank, My deepest sympathies to you both. May Christ give you strength during this time of loss. Mike Neeld and family, Wheaton College '89, Neeld Funeral Home, Xenia, OH
March 14, 2013
Lisa you will hold that little boy again. Until then every day I will pray for strength for you. You are an amazing mama and an amazing person. I love you. Love Sherry
March 13, 2013
Dear Lisa, Frank, C. J, Betsy, Tom and family,
We were so grieved to hear of the loss of your precious Kai. I loved hearing about him from you, Betsy, and I prayed for him often through those way too short precious years of his life.
I thought of him as a sunbeam with bursts of life infusing everyone he came in contact with. I think of the smiles that must have burst forth in those impish moments when you couldn't help but laugh.
I think of him now as one who gave much and who continues to burst forth in little sunbursts within each of you in ways that give life when life doesn't quite feel worth living, when each breath seems an effort.
So, I continue to see Kai as one who will never stop giving in memories of all those little moments too precious for words but that keep helping you put one foot in front of the other for him and for the Savior he loved and knew so well, the Savior who catches your tears as love gifts as he cradles you.
We love you and we grieve with you, Karen and Fred White

Kai, on your 6th birthday today, we would have been celebrating your beautiful spirit, your unbelievable zest for life, and your love for absolutely everyone. Those of us who had the opportunity to be with you in this life are so blessed to have had that time. The brilliant light of your soul is so deeply missed. Love, Aunt Christy

Dear family, I am praying for you through this wrenching loss. Such a loving boy, bringing so much joy to the hearts of family and friends. I keep thinking about all the love and nurturing you all invested in this precious one, along with the delight he returned to you day by day. Kai will truly be missed and his memory cherished. Praying for you in the pain,

Kai was the joy of his parents and grandparents hearts, the light of their lives, and the apple of their eyes! His innate kindness and his sweet spirit were among Kai's special qualities. May we all practice the same grace and goodness we observed in this little boy in our relationships with one another!

Lisa nd Frank, Betsy and Tom,
"May the God of hope fill you with all joy and peace in believing, so that you may abound in hope, through the power of the Holy Spirit." (Romans 15:13)

We love you.

Kai, you were so cute when I met you in NJ and you were playing with your food (and stealing my crackers, squishing them in your little fingers). You kept looking up at me and grinning... your laugh was contagious. You were so full of energy, repeating my name to get my attention, and I loved you immediately. My memories of you bring a smile to my face and always will. I wish I had had the chance to see your musical talent that your Grandma always raved about. You were a special little guy. Rest in peace.
February 25, 2013
On behalf of Holy Cross Lutheran Church and school, we would like to extend our deepest sympathy to Kai's entire family. Our thoughts and prayers are with you all during this difficult time and the days ahead. Stay strong as a family and give each other strength.
February 25, 2013
Dearest Kai - From the moment you were born I loved you more than my own life. My love for you grew deeper over the last almost 6 years. You were pure of heart and had no meanness in your spirit. You loved life, kids, adults, adventure, animals, everything about life. When I learned of your passing I thought that I could not survive. However, God is giving me grace each day. I so look forward to seeing you and being with you in Heaven. Rest in Peace under the watchful eye of Corporal Martinez, but, much more importantly, enjoy your wonderful time and adventures in Heaven with the Lord. Love, Grandpa

Lisa, we were absolutely heartbroken to hear about poor Kai. Don't even know what to say. So sorry for your loss. You and your family are in our thoughts and prayers.
February 21, 2013
Frank, Lisa and Family,
In our thoughts and in our prayers for you all...and I still smile when I think of the happy face Kai had at winning a crock pot at the company picnic.

There are no words of comfort I can give you, but know how much Kai was loved for exactly who he was at such a young age. Kyler always talked about how kind Kai was, how much he always wanted to help everyone. He made a big impression on his classmate and friend which says alot about the force of his personality at such a young age. I know he was a ray of sunshine in so many lives. He will be missed.
February 21, 2013
My deepest condolences to Frank and family. No parent should ever have to bury a child. My prayers are with you. God bless.
February 21, 2013
Sweet little Kai,

Your Aunt Christy has shared stories and her love for you many, many times. I know you are in the playground of heaven continuing to bless everyone with your wonderful smile.
My deepest sympathy to your entire family during such a sad, difficult time.
February 21, 2013
Our hearts are filled with sadness. Even though not in the same class Kai was one of Celia's favorite playmates last year in Westminster. We send you our love and wish you lots of strength.

Dear Lisa & Frank,

The Hopefulness that Heaven holds is not so far away, just gaze into another's eyes to see promise shines each day. Look close and see that Paradise's bliss is not a trait oncealed, it's pleasures can be known by everyone who at the cross will kneel. Our hope is in Jesus Christ and we will see our loved once again in Paradise. I really don't have words to express my heart hurts along with yours, I do know that Heaven is real and Kai is there in the loving hands of his heavenly father. Praying for your family's peace.

Love, Maggie Gonzalez

With the deepest and most heartfelt pain, we are so sorry about Kia's passing. We were all extremely fortunate to have had him in our lives, and to blessed by his pure and happy smile. We are all better for knowing him. "When someone you know becomes a memory, the memory becomes a treasure". Our prayers are with all of you.

February 20, 2013
Lisa and Frank,
We are so sorry to hear about Kai's passing. Melina was in PK4 with him last year and we have such fond memories of his smile and energy. We are praying for all of you and know he is smiling down from heaven on all of us.

Lisa,
I want to take this time to extend my deepest sympathy to yourself and Frank on the loss of Kai, and know that my thoughts and prayers are with you and your family during this difficult time.

Dear Lisa and Frank, I was terribly saddened to hear about Kai. I never meet him but just by looking at his photo you can tell he was an amazing person.

My very deepest condolences.
February 20, 2013
Dear Tom, I cannot imagine the pain you and your family are feeling at this moment. We have spoken about your family and how much you love them. Although it is totally inadequate, all of my sympathy is with you and your family. Nancy Brown
February 20, 2013
Dear Lisa and Frank,

Like all others who met Kai, we will never forget that infectuous smile and those shiny eyes so full of life. He will certainly be missed..... Elsa and I are thinking of you both and the tough road ahead. Be strong and don't ever hesitate to call on us. May you be surrounded with all the love and support of your family, friends and colleagues.
February 20, 2013
Our daughter, Emma, was in Kai's PK 4 class last year. She always spoke so highly of him. We are saddened to hear about Kai's death. We know he is doing amazing things with Jesus right not. Our hearts and prayers are with you.

Lisa, The right words can be so hard to find. Simply know that I'm thinking of you. Even on your darkest days there's an angel beside you to guide you along the way. RIP Kai.
February 20, 2013
Dearest Kai
You blessed so many people during your short time on earth. God has a greater plan for your goodness and bright light. It is so hard to understand but I have to believe that you will be part of his greater plan. Our hearts are broken but we also know that your heart and soul will be with us forever. Make sure you find my nephew Jack because together I know you can help all of us get through these difficult times when we want to be with you. We love you so much.

Several times a week, my little boy, Ryu, gets in the car, knees all dirty and happy as can be. On these days, when I ask him how his day was, he beams at me, with a smile from ear to ear, saying he played "chase with my friend, Kai". The question evolved to asking if he played 'catch Kai' that day. "Yes, Mommy, catch Kai". My little boy loved his time laughing and playing with Kai, a gift who brought such joy to those around him. My thoughts and love are with you, his family.
February 19, 2013
Matthew 5:8 "Blessed are the pure in heart, for they will see God." Dear Kai, we only met you a couple of times yet you made a big impression with your smile and kindness. Hold a place for us in Heaven.
February 19, 2013
Our hearts and prayers are with you. We have a great memory of Kai at the Monster Trucks playing with our boys and more focused on playing and having fun than the show. He was full of energy, joy and happiness. We will keep in our hearts and prayers
February 19, 2013
Our deepest sympathy and prayers for comfort at this difficult time. CJ has been a friend of my son since prek3 and was with him on the mission trip. CJ talked about Kai during the trip and the whole Nica crew is heart broken. Family from WCS

Our deepest condolences and love go out to you. May God have Kai in a far better place and may he leave us a permanent imprint of that beautiful smile.

Kai, you were an adorable boy and now you are enjoying your King. We are praying for your mom and dad and all the others who loved you and miss you so much.
February 19, 2013
The journey has been quicker for you sweetest angel – Kai.
You learned your lessons quickly, and ones I'll look upon.

I'm going to miss how much your Mommy used to tell me all about your mischief , it surely made us laugh. Like the time you got busted in the webcam lying on the floor when you were supposed to be paying attention in class or the time you poured melted wax down the sink and clogged up the pipes! Oh you sweet little angel, we just had to laugh, what else could we do at all your childhood acts. I'll miss seeing you jumping in the bouncy house and playing with your friends but you'll always be in our hearts even when not there. I'll keep an eye out on Mommy, so don't worry about that but I know that you're her Angel and you'll do much better at that!

Love,
February 19, 2013
Dear Kai,
I never met you but I have a little boy your age. You must of played with him in the play ground. I don't understand why these things happen but I know that God must have planted you on this earth to blossom in heaven. I will pray every day for your mommy and daddy.
February 19, 2013
May God's peace and arms surround you at this tragic time. Our prayers go out to the whole family. Kai's joy will be remembered by all of us at Westminster Christian School.

May God bless you and your family in this time of sorrow.
February 19, 2013
No words can express how heavy my heart is for you and your unexplained loss. May God bless you and your beautiful little angel's kind gentle soul. This random unspeakable, unexplained accident cant be understood. I have had a very similar loss and i have found that no matter what no one can take anyone from your heart and soul. Kai is with you and will be forever and you will see him again. Love and light!!! Jen
February 19, 2013
Sweet Kai, you were an indescribably pure light to every single person you met. You had a heart that was bigger than the sky and more love to give than anyone could conceivably have. I fell so in love with you when it seemed that you immediately reached right into my heart, stole it, and never let go. I will miss your beautiful spirit every day for the rest of my life. I love you so much, little dude. Love, Aunt Christy
February 19, 2013
Kai is an angel... I am sure he will be close of his parents always....
February 19, 2013
We do not understand why God wanted you so soon, but we are sure you have left a seed of love in this planet that will always be here with your family and loved ones. God bless you...
February 19, 2013
As a fellow parent at Coconut Grove Montessori, my heartfelt prayers and sentiments go out to your family. I can't begin to imagine your sorrow. God bless Kai and all of you.
February 19, 2013
Kai's smile was worth a thousand words! We also remember him at the company picnic & how happy & thrilled he was when he won a prize (a crock pot). No matter,he took it with joy and contentment. It was a gift, just as Kai was a gift to all of you. He will always be in your hearts as well as ours. God bless you!

Death is such a tragic event. May the hope found in the scriptures bring you comfort.
February 19, 2013
Lisa, We are so heartbroken to hear of Kai's return to heaven. Words cannot express. I hope you can find peace in the upcoming days and strength through your family and friends.

Much love to you and the family
February 19, 2013
Dear Lisa, Frank and family,
I will remember Kai for his exuberance and energy. When I met him at the first picnic he held out his hand and began chatting away like we were long lost friends (no shyness from that little guy). My heart aches for you and I pray God gives you the strength to get through this difficult time. You are in my prayers.
February 19, 2013
My beautiful Kai, You were a bright and shining star given to me by God. You promised me you would never leave me. But God wanted you with Him. I love you with all my heart and I will miss you every minute of every day for the rest of my life. I can't wait to see you again. Love, Mommy
