LONGVIEW, TX (KLTV) - East Texas said goodbye to a well-loved Longview doctor and his son on Friday.

Tom Eynon and his five-year-old son Aiden, lost their lives when their truck hydroplaned and hit a parked 18-wheeler in Smith County on May 31.

Hundreds of people showed up to release balloons in honor of Tom and Aiden. The ceremony was held in front of Tom Eynon's chiropractic office shortly after the funeral.

Mobberly Baptist Church was filled to capacity as people celebrated their lives.

Two of Eynon's daughters were also in the truck when the accident happened. They were released from a Dallas hospital earlier this week.
