A little boy on the Iron Range died on Saturday after a hard-fought battle with cancer.

And now, people are helping keep his memory alive with their porch lights.

Richard "Ricky" James Lind had Ewings Sarcoma, a bone cancer.

His family lives in Hibbing. A relative started asking people on Facebook to leave their porch lights on, to honor his warriors spirit.

And now folks from all over the world are adding pictures and saying they are going to flip the switch. Our thoughts go to Ricky's family and friends.

You can see the 'Lights on for Ricky' Facebook page here.
