WEST READING, Pa. (AP) -- The family of a terminally ill eastern Pennsylvania girl who received support from thousands of Christmas carolers over the weekend says she died early Christmas morning.

Family spokesman Christopher Winters said 8-year-old Delaney Brown of West Reading "passed away quietly with her loving family by her side." He said the family was requesting privacy "to celebrate their daughter's life and to mourn her loss."

An update posted on the "Team Laney" Facebook page said "My heart breaks right now. Our little angel on earth earned her pink glittery angel wings in heaven. ... I miss her so much already."

Delaney, nicknamed Laney, was diagnosed in May with a rare form of leukemia.

Thousands gathered outside her home Saturday night to fulfill her wish for a huge holiday sing-along.PA girl who got caroling wish loses battle with cancer
