Boy's Family Requests Mourners To Dress As Superheroes

WILLIAMSTOWN, N.J. (CBS) -- A little boy's family in Gloucester County is asking mourners to dress as superheroes as they say their last goodbyes.

Four-year-old Easton Windhurst lost his battle to cancer last week. Little Easton fought a courageous 19-month battle with aplastic ependymoma.

His parents are now asking those attending the service to wear bright colors or superhero outfits, and no black attire.

"Because Easton was a superhero in the hearts of everyone who met him," read Easton's obituary.

Visitation will be held July 18 from 9:30 to 11 a.m. at Our Lady of Peace Parish/St. Mary's Church on Main Street and Carroll Avenue in Williamstown. A memorial service will follow.

The family is also asking that instead of flowers, mourners donate to Children's Hospital of Philadelphia or the National Brain Tumor Society.

A GoFundMe has also been created.
