    Hi Jack, we’re missing you so much but we’re so pleased that you were able to live your life to the full.
    Everyone who knew you loved you and still does.
    You touched everybody’s heart, everybody who we talk to about you all have at least one funny story that they remember about you. It will be these memories that keep us going. Thanks for the signs you’ve been sending us, we will keep on looking out for them.
    You deserve this rest now, I can just picture you lying on a cloud, hands behind your head with a packet of biscuits next to you. Not just any biscuits though, remember you HAD to have dark chocolate because of the sugar in the milk chocolate. Never mind all the sugar that was used to make the actual biscuit haha you silly sod.
    Love and miss you forever
    Kim, Gaz, Leah, Jessica and your old pal Roxi xxxxxxxx
