The family and friends of Khaseen Morris, the 16-year-old Oceanside High School student who was fatally stabbed Monday, plan to gather a week from Saturday for a final send-off for the teen at an Oceanside funeral home. 

A funeral and visiting will be at Towers Funeral Home Inc., 2681 Long Beach Rd.,  on Sept. 28 from 10 a.m. to 4 p.m. 

The family said all are invited. 

"Khaseen showed love to the world, so it would be beautiful for the world to come and show love to Khaseen," Keyanna Morris, 30, the oldest sister of Khaseen Morris, said Friday. "We would like for everyone to come in bright colors — don't be down — just to show everyone his bright spirit." 

An obituary on the funeral home website lists his full name — Khaseen Asher Bryan Morris — and notes the 16-year-old was born in Mineola on Oct. 24, 2002, to parents Bryan and AnnMarie Morris.

Keyanna Morris said many of her brother's friends are also planning a skateboard and bike ride in honor of Khaseen the day after the funeral, but said details are still being worked out. 

"Khaseen skated everywhere," she said. "Khaseen would love that." 

Khaseen, a senior at Oceanside High School who would have turned 17 next month, died Monday after he was stabbed during a dispute over a girl at an Oceanside strip mall. 

Nassau County Police have arrested Tyler Flach, 18, of Lido Beach, and charged him with second-degree murder in Khaseen Morris' killing. Flach pleaded not guilty to the charge.
