Hundreds Honor Girl Who Got Last Wish

READING, Pa. - Hundreds braved cold and rainy weather to honor an eastern Pennsylvania girl serenaded by thousands of Christmas carolers just days before she died of cancer.

The Reading Eagle says many wore bright colors at the request of Delaney Brown's family, to honor what it called the 8-year-old's "fashionista style."

Delaney, whose nickname was Laney, died on Christmas morning from a rare form of leukemia.

One of the West Reading second-grader's last wishes had been for a huge holiday singalong. Thousands appeared outside her family's home on Dec. 21 to sing Christmas carols.

Family spokesman Chris Winters said Sunday's viewing was about Laney's "indomitable spirit" and her impact upon the world.
