Mourners asked to wear pink
READING (AP) — Mourners are being asked to wear bright colors — especially pink — in memory of a Pennsylvania girl who was serenaded by thousands just days before dying of illness.
The viewing for Delaney Brown will be held this afternoon in West Reading.
The 8-year-old girl known as Laney died early Christmas morning from a rare form of leukemia.
One of her last wishes had been for a huge holiday singalong.
Thousands of supporters appeared outside her family’s home on Dec. 21 to sing numerous Christmas carols.
To honor Laney’s “fashionista style,” family members have asked mourners to “dress to impress.”
