His energy will live on and these 10 days of love will always be special to us. Let’s all cherish life and those we love while we are here. Thank you.”
In a post on Friday, Broadus wrote that Kai died in his arms.
“He has now graduated and continuing to do work,” Broadus wrote. “He died in my arms and that feeling of energy will never leave me.”
