11-year-old mourner at Jon Davies’ funeral

Jared Flanders “got all dressed up, tied his own tie, and rode his bike to the funeral home all alone, just to show his respect.” (CBS Boston)

The Boston Herald has comments from both Jared and Jared’s father:

At first I was very startled. I am not quite sure how to deal with the situation. … I was a little surprised when I called his phone and a police officer answered it, and he happened to say how Jared rode his bike to the funeral home. We were talking about how even though what he had done was very nice, we’re trying to go back over the rules that he wasn’t supposed to leave the house. But it’s very touching that he would go and do that for someone.
