“KK, the moment you came into this world, we knew you were very special. You made our dreams come true. Although God gave you to us for such a short time, we were blessed by you. Only a few fit the special mold that you were made of. You had the ability to give with all your heart. You were outgoing and others loved to be around you. God made you gentle, faithful, loving, caring, kind, tenderhearted, considerate, forgiving, selfless, and generous. You were such a joy to us and to those around us. We loved all your friends and could see the special bond that all of you shared. For now, we will struggle to live without you, our hearts are broken, our pain great; however, we take comfort in knowing that you are smiling down at us from paradise. You have no more aches, no more pains, no more sorrows, and no more trials. See you soon. We love you forever!” said his family.
