4-Year Old Boy Receives 'Star Wars' Themed Funeral
Reported by Justin on 11 Apr 2014 19:20

Please see the appropriately titled absolutely heartbreaking story posted over on Daily Mail about a brave 4-year old child named Jack Robinson from Hampshire who tragically lost his life to a brain tumor and how his final wish was able to be recognized by his family.

In his short life Jack Robinson's fight against an inoperable brain tumour inspired his heroes Gary Barlow and Matt Smith to help him complete his bucket list.

But the four-year-old's final 'unique' wish could only be fulfilled yesterday, when his family and friends said goodbye to him at his Star Wars themed funeral.

His parents Terence and Marie Robinson were determined to celebrate their son's life and passions, having his body carried in a Star Wars coffin on a white horse-drawn carriage surrounded by stormtroopers.
