The parents of a 7-year-old boy who died after an upstate New York car crash have fulfilled his wish that they get married and they did it at the child’s funeral.

Amilcar Hill and Rahwa Ghirmatizion got married during yesterday’s funeral service in Buffalo for their son, Asa Hill. Asa died a day after his grandfather’s car was involved a chain-reaction highway crash last week.

Hundreds of people packed the church for Asa’s funeral. The couple surprised attendees by getting married, which the parents say their son had been asking them to do.

Amilcar Hill says Asa’s organs were being donated to save other young lives.
