On September 3, 2018 6 year old Kaci Edelbrock and her grandmother were killed in a tragic RV accident. As described by a family friend “ We adored Kaci for her fun-loving attitude and ability to hang with the boys in any sports arena. She was an amazing kid and is missed by so many!”
This family friend came across our Craved in Memory signs and said she knew immediately Kaci’s family needed one. This beautiful sign was created from a handwritten note and star drawing she had made for her parents with the quote “Shine as bright as Kaci” and is now a 3-dimensional sign her family can hang on their wall to cherish forever.
Kaci’s family has started a foundation in her honor where they have created a memorial fund scholarship to help local students go to college and they plan to do every year until the year Kaci would have graduated from high school. You can check out their page and see more about Kaci’s story on their instagram page @bigheartbigsmilefoundation or their website
