The family of a 4-year-old boy who died last week following a 19-month cancer battle has requested that mourners wear “superhero attire” to their son’s funeral, WPHT-TV reported.
Easton Windhurst passed away the morning of Wednesday, July 12, at his home in Williamstown, New Jersey, with his family by his side. According to his obituary, Easton’s illness did not prevent him from enjoying the life of a typical 4-year-old, which included a trip to Disney World, family swims, frequent trips to the Walmart toy aisle, preschool, and tee ball.
The boy’s loved ones made the dress code for his funeral clear:
“Because Easton was a superhero in the hearts of everyone who met him, the family requests that those attending the service wear bright colors or superhero attire. Please no black attire,” the obituary reads.
Today, friends and family attended a visitation, followed by a memorial service at Our Lady of Peace Parish / St. Mary’s Church in Williamstown.
A GoFundMe page has also been created to help the family with medical costs.
