Richard Culliver laid to rest

COLUMBIA (WACH) - The boy who stole the heart of the Midlands was laid to rest today in Lexington.

Nine year old Richard Culliver captured everyone's attention when he seemingly defied the odds with an inoperable brain tumor that seemed to miraculously disappear without treatment.

Then a few weeks ago, nine year old Richard's mother, Stephanie, announced on Facebook that her little boy had another brain tumor, which ultimately claimed Richard's life.

Stephanie says Richard was not afraid of death, since he had a personal relationship with God. One request he did have for his funeral was for everyone to wear either the colors of his favorite NFL team, the Pittsburg Steelers, or something from WWE.

Wach fox was invited to attend the celebration of Rchard's life today and the video can be viewed above.
