We honor and remember Kai each year on his birthday by donating our time, along with a little blood, sweat and tears toward cleaning up Homer City's InTown park , volunteering time to the Homer City Public Library and maintaining his memorial in Pine Township.

In conjunction with the national organization,
The Compassionate Friends
the family of Kai Hrabovsky has hosted local remembrance events to honor the lives of all the children we've lost.  The Compassionate Friends Worldwide Candle Lighting unites family and friends around the globe in lighting candles for one hour to honor the memories of the sons, daughters, brothers, sisters, and grandchildren who left too soon.  As candles are lit at 7:00 p.m. local time, hundreds of thousands of persons commemorate and honor the memory of all children gone too soon.   Now believed to be the largest mass candle lighting on the globe, the annual Worldwide Candle Lighting, a gift to the bereavement community from The Compassionate Friends, creates a virtual 24-hour wave of light as it moves from time zone to time zone.

We gathered with the community to remember Kai and continue to heal. 


We each had opportunity for our own ceremony as we burned pieces of the stand for the memory curtains at his visitation 

and the cherry tree he loved to climb at his grandparents' farm.  

We shared songs, stories, hugs, tears, and laughter in true Kai fashion, around a bonfire.
