Seabrook boy, 3, succumbs to brain cancer

(Continued)

Gosslin said about 150 people — including a really big Sponge Bob — gathered with Anthony at the Parish Hall at Trinity United Church in Seabrook for the Sponge Bob party in January. There was even a surprise visit from members of the Order of Odd Fellows who gave the family a donation to help with expenses related to his care, Gosselin said.

The family has asked that any donations be sent in Anthony’s name to David’s House at Dartmouth Hitchcock Hospital. During the months he was treated at the hospital, the family members who stayed with him were put up at David’s House, Gosslin said.

“The people at David’s House were wonderful to the family,” she said. “They took good care of them.”

Anthony will be remembered during visiting hours tomorrow from 5 to 7 p.m. at Remick and Gendron Funeral Home in Hampton, with services immediately following.

“I think they’re going to release a bunch of Sponge Bob balloons in his memory right at the service,” Gosslin said. “I can’t believe he’s gone. I miss him already.”
