Secuelas del desfile de Waukesha: Jackson Sparks, 8, recordado en el funeral por su amor por el béisbol

The ballplayer’s family urged other children to show up in béisbol jerseys to memorialize him and to acknowledge his favorite sport.

Y eso es lo que hicieron, from children appearing around his age to several adults and the NCAA team from Waukesha’s Carroll University.

Inside, dozens of people at a time lined up to share their condolences with Jackson’s parents at a closed-casket service.

Los padres, Aaron and Sheri Sparks, stood beside a wooden coffin adorned with blue and white flowers and a Waukesha Blazers baseball cap and a bat, representing the youth team for which Jackson played.

Images cycled across a large screen above them, including one of Jackson with his dad in a dugout. There were about a dozen elaborate floral displays sent from members of the community.
