14-Year-old Josiah Viera had been battling a rare rapid aging disease, but he captured the hearts of many.

Josiah's book is sold at Threading Love in Lewisburg, where Manager Jody Gates says it's a bittersweet moment.

Viera passed away on Christmas Eve.

His slogan, "Never give up," inspired Penn State football and the State College Spikes baseball team, a team he served for as the honorary bench coach.
