This is so sweet.  Hundreds of trucks showed up on Friday to honor a boy who died of a rare bone disease.

A special funeral truck procession honored 3-year-old Elijah Steffen, who died of a rare disease that targets bones and organs.

Friday’s fleet, which included fire engines, monster trucks and military vehicles, grew from a Facebook post by a friend of Elijah’s family asking for just one truck to show up at the funeral.
