MULLENS (WVVA) - Classmates and community members were mourning the loss of a Wyoming County child Monday -- the first day back to school since his tragic death.

Mullens Middle School Principal Terri Smith tells WVVA News that 12-year-old Kaimyn Anderson will be greatly missed by the entire community.

Anderson died Friday night after collapsing while at the Wyoming East-Westside football game.

Smith said Anderson was a popular student who was involved in sports.

Students and faculty at the school wore blue Monday -- Anderson's favorite color -- in honor of the student.

There's no word at this time on what caused the boy to collapse. The Wyoming County Sheriff's Office says there was nothing suspicious about the death.

A memorial page has been set up on Facebook in Anderson's memory. According to a post on the page Monday, The Kaimyn Anderson Fund has been established at First Peoples Bank in Mullens to help the family with expenses.

A funeral for Anderson was being held Tuesday at Mullens Pentecostal Holiness Church. Condolences may be left online at www.tankersleyfh.com
