Little Boy Gets Star Wars Themed Funeral As Final Wish

You know what's behind the helmet? Tears.

In heartbreaking news, these are photos of 4-year old Jack Robinson's Star Wars themed funeral. Because life isn't fair in the least, Jack, of Hampshire, England, was diagnosed with an inoperable brain tumor and developed a bucket list of things he'd like to do before passing. Having his parents organize a Star Wars themed funeral was the last. Here, I'm just going to copy/paste while I excuse myself for a second.

His carriage was covered floral tributes, including one reading 'Jedi' and wreaths in the shape of a lightsaber, Yoda and R2-D2.


Inside the church a brass band played the film's The Binary Sunset music - known as Luke Skywalker's theme - and the order of service read: 'Master Jack Robinson, joined the force 1st April 2014'.

Jack always had that cheeky grin on his face. Even when we were in hospital and I was sleeping next to him, he would poke me in the back with a lightsaber, then very quickly hid it and grin at me.

In just four-and-a-half years, Jack achieved what many people spend a lifetime doing. He was only a little boy but he brought people together, from all over the world.

Jack also got to ride in a firetruck as an early birthday present, meet singer Gary Barlow, and had a personal video message sent to him by the 11th Doctor, Matt Smith (who also sang him the show's theme song). Rest in peace, Jack.

Keep going for a couple more shots, but you will cry if you're not already.

Thanks to Alistair, who agrees Jack is probably riding around on Obi-Wan's back even as you read this.
