Despite his life threatening condition, Weston Keeton's friends are remembering him as a courageous boy who lived life to its fullest, brought people together and touched the lives of thousands of people he never knew.

The 7-year-old Blountville child died Sunday afternoon at the Children's Hospital of Philadelphia where he lived for two and a half years before receiving a long awaited heart and double lung transplant in December.

Contacted by phone on Monday, Weston's mother Julie said while the family is heart broken they are also happy that Weston is no longer undergoing the many difficult procedures he endured and is finally "breathing easy" with God.
