  1. I have just read your lovely tribute to Jack in the daily mail newspaper. It was a beautifully written tribute. I didn’t know Jack but the way you wrote about him made me wish I had. Sorry for your very sad loss of Jack at too young an age.

  2. I have just read your tribute to Jack in the DM.

    He sounds like a wonderful human being. You made me realise I need to spend more time with my son before he flies the nest.
    Thank you.

  3. I was so saddened to read of the loss of your wonderful son Jack. Right now the whole world desperately needs special young men just like him. Brave, generous, entertaining, enthusiastic – a unique combination of admirable human qualities.
    I’m sure he’ll be remembered and admired by everyone who new him, and many of us who, sadly now never will.

  4. I cynically read the headline in the Daily Mail about loved ones visiting us after death. Didn’t pay much attention to it until I read about your beloved son Jack. I wondered what made me read your tribute to Jack. They were similarities such as my nephew was born on 24th July and passed away very young (a few years ago) aged only 16. I just felt some sort of connection with you and felt like commenting. My nephew too loved Christmas. We have very strong ties with Arsenal and same as Jack’s funeral we had people standing in the aisles too. I am so sorry you had such a short time with Jack. He sounds like such a wonderful son. May God bless you and your family.

  5. Your tribute to your wonderful son touched my heart . The love you felt and still feel for him shines through in your heartfelt description. It was a privilege to read about him . Condolences. X

  6. Thank you for doing such honour to your boy Jack . You’ve made us all stop and think of relationships and the casualness of how we treat the future, as if it’s assured.
    I hope you can rejoice in knowing Jack and know that Jack’s picture was painted and complete and finished , his life in this world ended as he moved to his next world.
    I hope your heart can heal and you may laugh again and rejoice in the day, rather struggling just to get through the next 24 hours.
    You obviously are a hero of a mum to stand apart from your grief and deliver such a sweet lesson to warn us of the fragility of life , for us all to learn and benefit from. Well done you

    Patricia Girard
