GRAFTON, Mass. - Kai Parker Rezendes died at Children's Hospital in Boston on November 27, 2012. Kai was born on September 5, 2010 and diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor in May of 2011.
He and his family spent the past 18 months fighting his disease with the help of an incredible team of caregivers at UMass Medical Center, Dana Farber, Children's Hospital, and the Jimmy Fund Clinic. His journey also affected and inspired an entire community of family and friends. Emerson said, "It is not length of life, but depth of life" and Kai's short life has had a deep and profound impact on many.
He will be remembered by his parents, Kerri (Padgett) Rezendes and Mark Rezendes, his extended family, his caregivers and his "village".
Arrangements will be coordinated through Roney Funeral Home in Grafton.
