Mourners gathered Thursday morning to say final goodbyes to an 8-year-old boy who died after falling into the Chicago River.

It was a private funeral service for Cashmere Castillo at Our Lady of Mercy Catholic Church.

Cashmere had been playing tag with friends last week at Eugene Field Park near his home when he jumped a fence and fell into the river.

His body was found this past Sunday about a mile down river.
