LITTLE ROCK, AR-- With friends and family at his side, Michael Stanley's casket is guided into Mercy Seat Missionary Baptist Church. Saturday afternoon, funeral services were held for the teen who died last week.
The 14-year-old was killed after police say 58-year-old Michael Sadler ran over him in his minivan May 3rd on Oak Street.
Stanley's aunt, Rachelle Molden, says the family is gradually finding comfort.
"We've been spending a lot of time at the site where it happened. So we are getting a lot of solace being that's where Michael took his last breath," said Molden.
Stanley went to school in North Little Rock and was the youngest of seven kids, which his friends and family say reminds them of his very short life.
Friends say they do have inner peace.
"He's gone to where I am trying to get, which is heaven," said Molden.
