Sonic Fan Who Passed Away from Rare Disease Finally Got Sonic Party He Dreamt Of

December 14, 2021

6-year-old social media star Antwain “TJ’ Fowler who went viral with his phrase “where we ’bout to eat at” and who sadly passed away last month, finally got the Sonic celebration he always wanted.

Sometimes life just isn’t fair and never has it been more unjust than when I beautiful young child passes away. It’s fair to say that the internet went into a deep state of mourning when the funny and charming Antwain “TJ’ Fowler, who melted the hearts of the nation with a viral clip of him saying “where we ’bout to eat at”, succumbed to a rare immune deficiency disorder in November.

Antwain, who was a huge Sonic the Hedgehog fan, unfortunately never had the chance to celebrate his love for the little blue character while he was alive. In a beautiful tribute to his life, his family finally organised a Sonic party in a final farewell to Antwain’s short but very much loved time on earth.

On his Instagram page, that’s packed full of wonderful memories of Antwain and run by his mother _chinablaq, some recent posts can be seen that showcase a Memorial service set up for the young star that includes a balloon release that asks guests to bring royal blue and white balloons to signify the colours of Sonic the Hedgehog.

Throughout Antwain’s funeral service the family organised the ultimate Sonic party in dedication and celebration for the young child’s love for the blue creature. With the help of a local funeral Consultant Company, Sonic the Hedgehog can be seen attending the service as well as carrying the little boy’s coffin which is just the saddest sight.

Antwain’s mother said in a picture of Sonic standing beside the horse-drawn cart holding the coffin “I just know his face lit up right now!!! He finally had the sonic Party”.

Our hearts and sympathies go out to Antwain’s family and friends and what a lovely way to honour his life by giving him the Sonic celebration he always wanted. Rest in Peace little guy.
