10 year olds attending a funeral of a 10 yr old classmate who committed suicide....... [View all]

I have to say this video is so sad.




NEW: Over 100 bikers turn out to show their support for 10-year-old Sammy Teusch who took his own life after being bullied for years for his teeth and glasses.

Rest in peace, Sammy.

Sammy's motorcycle escort was hosted by Iron Sharpens Iron Motorcycle Ministry.

His parents were seen weeping by his casket as they said their final goodbyes.

Family and friends shared stories of Sammy including his neighbor Andrew McIntosh who delivered his eulogy.

"Right there in my hallway was a handsome little boy that I swear could have been pulled right out of an Andy Griffith episode or a Norman Rockwell painting."

"I knew immediately that my son had made a good friend."

"He just looked up at me sweating, those glasses that rose up on his cheeks over a smile that was way too big for his little face."

"But when he did smile, and I mean really smile, he just seemed to suck the darkness out of every corner in the room."

Devastating.
