CULLMAN COUNTY, AL (WBRC) -

Funeral services were held today for a 6-year old killed in a tragic accident in Cullman.

A car hit Jeremiah Harville while he was riding his bicycle last week. Monday afternoon he was laid to rest.

His funeral was held at the Hanceville funeral home and his burial service will be held Monday evening at Mt. Zion Methodist Ceremony in Cullman County.

Jeremiah died last Thursday while riding his bike. Witnesses say he rode right into the path of a car and the driver could not stop in time.

Jeremiah was a first grader at Cullman City Primary School. Extra counselors have been brought in to help students as well as staff members work through this loss. Students in Jeremiah's class wrote letters to his family sharing some of their favorite memories.

Principal Patricia Culpepper says that Jeremiah was a little boy who loved life and was so proud of the fact that he was becoming an independent reader.

Besides writing letters, students also participated in a balloon release in Jeremiah's memory today.
