Caleb Schwab

Friends and family celebrated the life of Caleb Schwab at his funeral on Friday. The 10-year-old Kansas City boy was decapitated while riding the Verrückt water slide on Aug. 7.

Caleb's father, Kansas State Rep. Scott Schwab, thanked friends and the public for their outpouring of love and support.

Schwab summoned Caleb's little league baseball team to join him at the podium. He told the team how important they were to his son.

"Caleb's friends, thank you for helping shape his character and building memories that we will cherish forever. You guys are awesome," Schwab said as the boys huddled with him.

Schwab also talked about Caleb and his 3 surviving sons.

"When my kids were born, Nathan was my pleasure, Caleb was my joy, Alex was my delight and Isaac was my treasure. We lost some joy, but we'll get it back," he said.

The funeral was followed by a private burial.

The Kansas City Star reports Schwab and his wife Michelle retained Leawood attorneys Michael Rader and Edward Robertson Jr. to represent their family.

The law firm of Bartimus Frickleton Robertson said neither the family nor the firm would make any public statements.

Robin Sloan, the mother of Caleb's friend Jack, 10, told People magazine about conversations her son had with Caleb in Sunday school.

"They talked about Heaven," Sloan said. "Jack loved chocolate milk. [He and Caleb] said there would be endless amounts in Heaven."

The Verrückt ride will remain closed for the rest of the season, the water park said.

    I pray Caleb is resting in peace and Heaven is everything he imagined. ??

  • eljjai

    may he RIP. Are they saying the ride will open next season? WTF?

  • the guest

    The ride should be shut down for good.

  • Renee Bee

    So sad. RIP Lil Man. Blessing to the family.

  • Teresa Uriel

    I hate to break it down to you baby, but No!....edomites aint getting into the Kingdom created for the Real Israelites ( The Chosen people )

    If you read Revelations when it describes the Kingdom, all the gates have the names of the 12 tribes ONLY....there is no gate for edomites, or moabites, ammonites, Ishmaelites, etc etc ONLY ISRAELITES!!!!

    I know it's hard for yall to accept it, but you better accept it before dem skies crack open...

  • Teresa Uriel

    I'm not here to sugar-coat nothing (like these false sunday pastors/bishops)....I'm here to give you black folks the same Truth that was rejected back then (by black folks), when Christ spoke about it...

    "For my sword shall be bathed in heaven: behold, it shall come down upon Idumea, and upon the people of my curse, to judgment."

    ISAIAH 34:5

    1. Sword being bathed means the sword will have alot of blood on it
    2. Idumea is another word for Edom
    3. The heaven in this context means 'in rulership' Christ will be ruling at this time in the New Kingdom

    You can either REJECT this Truth ( again) and be destroyed with the edomites at Christ's return, OR you can accept the Truth and live.

  • BarbieLenox

    Omg real tears. This baby want nothing of the world but chocolate milk. Smh. Man how sad.

    You sound CRAZY! This is a child, kill that BS!

  • Appalachia

    Tragic and gruesome, but thankfully the poor guy went quick and didn't suffer. My heart breaks for his family.

  • T3

    That's what I was thinking. And yep, that's exactly what they mean. Smh

  • Fendi aka Erin Blockabitch

    Do yourself a favor. Don't make assumptions as to what you think others know, have read, etc. You can quote scripture and read Bibles all day. That won't ensure YOU getting into Heaven. I wished the innocent victim well because he was a child who didn't deserve not only to lose his life, but be decapitated.

    Keep your demonic division to yourself, especially as it pertains to my comments. I'm not relegating a child to hell for your comfort.

    I feel your passion for your beliefs BUT if u are flesh and blood, you aren't a member of any spiritual realm and YOU are human just like the rest of us...no one knows the exact hour or the "chosen" ones...they're many different versions of the Bible and different translations..We don't have all the answers bc frankly we couldn't handle it...so certain abilities were taken away during biblical times...I do agree that a storm is coming but nobody on this earth knows the outcome...

    Ok, this post has me crying. His baseball team? I didn't even think about his friends, classmates and team mates,only his family. I hate that kids have to be introduced to such painful realities of life so early. I like what his dad said about each of his boys. That slide better not ever open back up,period. The other women in the raft, Caleb's brother, parents, siblings, other people at the park...My heart goes out to all of them. This never should have happened. RIP Caleb.

    This ride should never open back up, should never been available for kids to ride , hell officials should never had signed off to have it built. Prayers for this family and especially his older brother.

    I have no idea what "gesh" is, but when you can read where I referred to as Heaven being in the sky, then get back to me. Then and only then.

    Oh the mind of kids. To be one again. Well I hope there is lots & lots of chocolate milk there as you rest peacefully. At only 10, it appears you have touched a many of lives & will be truly missed. Prayers for your family & little buddies, too.

    I thought the same thing. I just might need to pray.

    Well who didn't see this one coming. I hope at the end of day, necessary changes will CLEARLY be made because this could have happened to anyone. The reports about others feeling unsafe (even kids) & the straps not being adequate needs to be well...should've already been #1 priority. You wouldn't catch me on the muthfer, but FOR SURE after seeing that...but we KNOW some thrill seeker, adrenaline addict is pissed that it's not reopening. A three year old outside of Pittsburgh was thrown from a ride while on it with an older sibling (no belts need on an old a$$ wooden coaster). Three girls were hurled 30ft from a Ferris wheel in Tennessee. People don't go to the fair & amusement parks to die, so I pray THESE businesses get it & do the right thing or SUE EM ALL, until they learn!

  • Finding Forever…

    That puss MUST be lined in glitter & gold, LLS. Two rings in a year or two? Homie did an AMMMAAZZING job because that THING...BLING, BLOW! Ex after 20 years might be somewhere just a brewing & stewing ...this sorry a$$ & after only a few months! I'm still thinking (as much as she denied it) that something was going on in those pews on set. But congrats, congrats to them...wish them the very best going foward.

  • Finding Forever…

    When did you start your ready, seeeet, go...run to leave, LOL...mid engagement or at the alter before thee I do? Did you keep the ring(s) or take the "legal route" & return it? Takes a lot of courage to me, that one can see it's NOT going to last or they aren't made to be & END IT. Instead of "saving face" & going on through it, rackin up expenses & emotions along the way. One cousin of mine took that latter decision TWICE to save face. Did she NOT learn the first time? I sure did & it wasn't my ISH :). Another called it off mid-engagement...well he suggested/told her & she ain't have noooo other choice in the matter, LOL. They were in college & STILL finding themselves, so it was for the better in the end. She was dipping on the side...see gif, LLS.

    I've called off engagements before , all my fault . I always want to be married and when the time gets close I chicken out . Not this time !And maybe that's why I disappeared from this blog ,i've Been dealing with it lately .
    I never kept a ring because I don't want to see their azzes in court or them harassing me .
    My wedding was supposed to be 2 weeks ago , mf Ghey .
    I'm just coming back to my senses now because I almost became a criminal .
    I'm just gonna keep running away .

  • ReadingIsFundamental4Real

    I can usually take your opinions but, Jesus.. Wtf kind of heaven do you think you are getting in to? This is a child. Do you speak this when freak accidents happen to our children? You need to shred and burn whatever cursed version of the bible you are interpreting. Just go read Dr Suess books from now on. Thank God for the blocked feature. Never thought Id use it on you.
    May God forgive you.

  • Jahnée Gill Mr.Eddie Murphy

    They're telling the truth though. You may not like it, but it is what it is. I get why y'all mad, cause its a child . He isn't going to heaven, it isn't biblical. He's asleep until its time for him to be awoken again. I dont know what bible y'all reading. I'm not emotionally attached to this kid, nor do I have an empathy or sympathy for him or his people. I save my sorrow and tears for more important things. I don't give a damn who's faux offended. You'd be surprised how many people agree with that person but are too afraid of backlash to admit it. Y'all can talk about the most high all day everyday, but y'all have no real understanding of the Almighty , if y'all did this wouldn't be up for discussion. The most high sent two bears to eat two kids that made fun of Elisha bald head. The bible says to prepare your children for slaughter! That should tell you the almighty don't give a damn, Y'all gonna learn the hard way. I'm not religious either , which is why I see things for what they are and not with my emotions.

    WOW. Well I'm glad you came to your senses because no one is worth you losing your mental & freedom for. You know what? Scratch that because I've had a person or two take me alllllmost to that point (that CLEARLY is a breaking point), but I'm GLAD for you & yours that you stopped any actions that could lead to such. Stay prayerful & I will too (for ya)...that you'll have continued healing & blessings from this day forward. Your BEST is yet to COME. On the bright side...his loss & your gain! The botanical will give ya an ear or two or three...if you need one, I'm sure ;).

  • Finding Forever…

    The divorce was official the beginning of the year I think. I've always been one for either wanting to give myself a "break" or the dude, if he's just coming out of a relationship. The heart needs a break, imo. Get all the former GUCK off ya...completely, LOL. In his defense maybe they both had already checked out a looong time ago & THEM papers are just making it official. Who knows? I'm confusing myself on others confusion, just writing.

    No such thing as GOD. If there was a GOD would he allow a certain race to be abused and killed for centuries? I don't think so. Black America has once been brainwashed again and the GOD narrative was the end all be all to our destruction. The bible is made up of half truths and fables. We are prying wrong and to the wrong Creator.
