Funeral for Ayden 2

Family, friends and well-wishers, extended their condolences, and gathered to remember, 2-year-old, Anthony (A.J.) Tullius and 3-year-old, Ayden Cecil at a service on Tuesday morning, at Bolin Dierkes Funeral Home.

The half-brothers went missing from their Ellis Dam Camp site over a week ago. The Grandmother of A.J Tullius, Susan Miller, still remembers the night of the accident. She said, the mother, Kasey Klein, was too distraught to speak.

"I think now it's hitting her, a lot worse now," said Miller. "Now, it's real, you know, it's real."

Miller said, she is thankful for the community support and Falls Township Fire Chief, JD Johnson, for his continued efforts. Her only wish now is for closure...

"Just the thought of him being still in that water," said Miller. "And I know, he is still not there, I know that, I know that...but it's hard, it's really hard."

Miller believes both boys are in a better place. 3 year-old Ayden was found a mile down river, and search efforts for 2 year-old Anthony Tullius have been called off.
