The funeral for three-year-old Elijah Marsh saw an overwhelming show of support on Saturday, as hundreds of mourners packed a Toronto church to capacity to say goodbye to the boy whose death earlier this month touched the hearts of Canadians across the country. Elijah died after he wandered out of his grandmother's apartment building on February 19th in the middle of a frigid night wearing just a diaper, shirt and boots. Family friend Jude Charles says that she was turned away at the door to the church with hundreds of others who waited in the parking lot for a chance to say goodbye to Elijah. (More than 173 thousand dollars was raised in an online fundraising campaign to help cover the cost of the funeral for the family.)
