“Our thoughts and prayers go to Jacks entire family at this devastating time.

“Jack to know you was to love you xxxx. FLY HIGH WITH THE ANGELS.”

A funeral notice for little Jack said he will be laid to rest on Tuesday, following a 1.30pm Service in Church of The Nazarene, Mourne Road, Lurgan at 1.30pm, which will be followed by interment in Banbridge New Cemetery.
