I am so heartbroken for you guys and my thoughts and prayers are with you! I am so lucky and blessed to have had the chance to be apart of his life and your families. I will never forget those beautiful blue eyes and the sunshine that as in his face and both of yours whenever you saw him. A double rainbow surrounded our school today, and I instantly felt Jacks spirit upon us, giving us comfort as if to let us know he was in peace. God must need him for something very important now and he will forever be able to be in peace with no pain or suffering. Hold on to each memory and know that you can never lose the sound of his laughter and love that you all felt for those precious 6 months. Love to you all and thank you for allowing me the opportunity to hold Jack and be apart of his life and yours. May God give you strength now. I will never forget you Callaghan family. Love always, judi gray
