GREENVILLE, SC (FOX Carolina) -

People from all over the Upstate are dressing up as superheroes in honor of Jacob Hall and even the original superhero himself is showing his support.

Adam West, the actor most well-known for his role as Batman in the classic television series, wrote a special note to Jacob's parents on his Facebook Page.

The post says:

“To Jacob's parents: I was so moved by your story and what you are doing with your son. Sending my heartfelt best wishes and praying for you to have strength. I loved Jacob, too.”

Jacob’s parents said he loved superheroes and at his funeral on Wednesday he will be dressed in his superhero costume. His parents are encouraging others to dress as superheroes as well.

“I don’t want suits and ties and all that,” Jacob's mother said. “There will be a lot of children there and I don’t want it to be scary for them. Jacob will be dressed in his superhero costume.”
