Facebook lit up over the past few days as posters rallied behind a Lehighton couple.

Lora and Dave Krum, whose son Dylan would have been a senior at Lehighton Area High School this year, had requested they be allowed to walk across the football field on the school's senior night in memory of their son, who passed away in July of 2010 just two months after being diagnosed with leukemia.

Dylan had been a member of the Lehighton Area Middle School Band and was looking forward to starting school in the fall of that year, and becoming a member of the high school band. He never got the chance.

The Krums were initially denied their request to walk in honor of their son, who would have been a senior this year.

It seems, however, the school board has had a change of heart, and the Krums will join other parents on Friday, Nov. 1, in what may prove to be an emotional night for many.
