Star Wars funeral honors 4-year-old boy from England after passing away from brain tumor

An English 4-year-old was recently given his final wish after dying from an inoperable brain tumor: a Star Wars-themed funeral.

The boy was reportedly given a five percent chance of survival, Yahoo reports , so the child and his family created a special bucket list.

After visits in the hospital from his favorite celebrities and other special moments, the boy passed away, but his family wanted to give him the funeral he would have wanted.

The boy's funeral included a carriage with flowers that spelled out "Jedi" and a few Stormtroopers led the family. His coffin was even themed.

According to Yahoo, the boy's service also included Star Wars songs and messages.

One of those messages included "Master Jack Robinson, joined the force 1st April 2014," according to the report, honoring the young boy and his love for the classic movie.
