At his funeral Saturday in The Colony, a montage of videos chronicling the time he was born to the time of his death just 18 months later brought tears to strangers' eyes.
The pictures of precious moments — like Dastan's first haircut — helped his mom cope with losing a child.
"He was a hero," Amanda Trant said. "His favorite superhero was Batman. He had Batman crocs on all the time."
Trant calls Dastan a hero, because even though her toddler died, he is helping others to live.
When Dastan died suddenly from illness last week, his parents donated his organs.
"You never think about it until you are put in that position," his mother said. "We were told that there was no hope, but there was something good that could come out of it."
Doctors said Dastan helped save three other young lives.
Neighbors and strangers tied green ribbons on trees along Maple Drive to commemorate the young hero's organ donations.
