DALLAS -- In May, Michael Malone's kindergarten teacher appealed to News 8 viewers to help find him a rare, stuffed animal that he loved.
With your help, and social media, Lesley Armstrong succeeded in locating the last known dodo bird puppet of its kind.
Armstrong said seven-year-old Michael and the dodo bird were inseperable.
On Saturday, Michael lost his two-and-a-half year battle with neuroblastoma cancer.
He was buried on Tuesday with the dodo bird at his side.
