Beech Grove, Ky. (WHAS) – Family and friends of 13-year-old Lane Goodwin gathered at his visitation Sunday night at Calhoun Baptist Church in Beech Grove, Kentucky.

The teen that launched a wave of social media inspiration passed away from a rare form of cancer on Wednesday. Goodman had been battling the disease for more than three years.

Goodman’s family decided to give his fans a final goodbye by streaming his visitation online.

The teen inspired many with his positive outlook even during the toughest times of his illness through his “thumbs up” campaign.

Lane’s funeral will take place Monday at 330 P.M. at Calhoun Baptist Church.

WHAS will have full coverage of Goodman’s funeral on air and online.
