ORLANDO, Fla. - Walt Disney World is honoring the little boy who was killed by an alligator at the Grand Floridian resort last year with a newly unveiled sculpture.
The lighthouse sculpture honors Lane Thomas Graves and the foundation created in his name. It was placed along the shorelines where the tragic incident occurred more than a year ago.
According to WFTV.com, The Graves family said in a statement, “We find comfort that so many people continue to remember our sweet boy, Lane, and we believe the lighthouse stands as a beacon of hope and support for families in the depths of despair. We will continue to honor Lane and preserve his spirit through the Lane Thomas Foundation."
