Bradley Lowery funeral guests say they saw clouds parting to reveal a boy's face and blue heart in the sky as little lad was laid to rest

A MOURNER at Bradley Lowery’s funeral has posted a picture of clouds above the church that he claims shows the face of a young boy and the shape of a heart.

Writing on Facebook, Mark Shields said: “I took this picture at Bradley's funeral today, just a bit surreal that I looked up for a second and a blue heart formed over the church however the picture has revealed something else.

“Look in the top right corner at the little boys face. This is unbelievable.”

Mr Shields, whose company provided the superheroes that accompanied Bradley's coffin towards the church, took the picture on a Samsung S5.

A memorial service was held for the youngster, who captured the nation’s hearts over the last few months during his battle against neuroblastoma, at a church in Blackhall Colliery yesterday.

His family tonight thanked all those who came to give Brad "an amazing send off".

A statement on Facebook said: "It was very overwhelming but I was very proud of how brave my amazing family and friends were.


"I'm going to take a few weeks off to grieve now but once I've did that the Bradley Lowery foundation will be well on its way to supporting other children."

His family also thanked staff at the "amazing" Royal Victoria Infirmary "for always doing everything in their power to get my boy better".

Bradley Lowery's family posted this heartbreaking message on Facebook today thanking those for helping give him a great send off

Bradley was just six when he died and his family opened parts of the funeral to the public by inviting well-wishers to visit the village and line the streets.

It was reported that hundreds came to pay to their respects to the child who developed a heart-warming friendship with footballer Jermain Defoe, who was playing for nearby Sunderland AFC.

Many mourners wore the club’s red and white strip – in tribute to his support for the team – while others came in the kits of other teams with the name Bradley printed across the back.

Mr Defoe jointed the crowds and wore an England football shirt with the name Bradley and number six on the back.

Former Sunderland manager David Moyes was also in attendance and was in post when the youngster made an appearance at the Stadium of Light to highlight the medical condition.

Bradley and Mr Defoe developed a close bond following the event, Bradley appeared as a mascot, and the striker continued to stay in touch with his family as his condition worsened.

The youngster sadly passed away on July 7.
