Boy With Terminal Cancer Writes in Obit, "See Ya Later, Suckas!"

A 5-year-old boy from Iowa refused  to let his rare form of terminal cancer take away his sense of humor.  This past weekend, Garrett Matthias went viral thanks to the hilarious  obituary he penned for himself before his passing on July 6. The obit  listed Matthias' alias as "The Great Garrett Underpants" and ended with  "See ya later, suckas!" He also listed "I am a bulldog!" as his address  and wrote that when he dies, "I am going to be a gorilla and throw poo  at Daddy!" The obituary also requested "five bouncy houses (because I’m  5), Batman, and snow cones" in lieu of a funeral because "funerals are  sad." On Saturday, the boy's wish came true as his parents threw a party  complete with Batman, snow cones and five bouncy houses. "I really  don't want to stand in a church or a funeral home for hours on  end...This seems to be a much better way to go," his mom Emilie said.  "We're here to have a good time and to celebrate his life."
