NJ Town Plans Full Police Funeral for Boy, 10

RIDGEWOOD, N.J. (AP) -

A town in northern New Jersey is planning a full police funeral for 10-year-old Michael Feeney, named Ridgewood’s honorary police chief for 2013 before succumbing to cancer on Friday. The fifth-grader had Ewing’s sarcoma, a rare, aggressive and often fatal bone cancer that usually develops in children and young adults. His funeral is scheduled for Tuesday. His father, Jack Feeney, said his son “squeezed 100 years into the 10 years that he lived.” The police department plans to name a future junior police academy after him.
