WICHITA FALLS, Texas (TNN) - Kaleb Honea, a 16-year- old Rider High School student who died of complications from a car accident last month, was honored at The Warehouse in Downtown Wichita Falls.

Tables were covered in family photos of Kaleb along with a few personal items, like his backpack, football helmet and jersey.

There was food, music and even a place where guests could write a special farewell message to Kaleb and his family.

“Kaleb, he never did anything nice expecting anything in return,” said Amanda Bolding, Kaleb’s mother. “He did it because he wanted to do it. He would spend his last little bit of money taking care of someone else that’s just who he was.”

People came to share their memories of Kaleb, comfort one another, and remember the boy who put a light in so many lives.
