TEARS FROM HEAVEN : Monday 21st August 2006

1994 - 2006


In a packed St Mary's Church at Walton, Felixstowe, the service to celebrate twelve and a half year old Jack Wilkinson's life was held today, Monday 21st August 2006.

The cortege arrived amid torrential rain that followed a short but brief thunderstorm. Conducted by the Reverend Peter Harris, the service included the hymns, All Things Bright and Beautiful, Kum Ba Yah and Lord of All Hopefulness. In between Jack's mother Caz bravely read her own poem and tribute before his father Karl relayed a wonderful ten-minute eulogy of their beloved son. It revealed how Jack put everyone before him, and told of all the challenges he had undertaken for charity together with his love of animals and birds in the natural world.

At the end of the service Reverend Harris observed the rain on the flowers that lay on Jack's coffin and remarked that they were 'tears from heaven'. They added to the many tears that flowed during the celebration of his life.

The committal followed at Ipswich Crematorium.
