Jamie was full of energy and enthusiasm for life. One friend said that he had fitted a lifetime of talking into 13 years. How very true! He was loved by all those who met him and in his eulogy we explained how his name mirrored his character:

Jamie sadly passed away on 14th March 2015. He was only 13 years old.
We found Jamie lifeless in his bed on that Saturday morning and called for assistance immediately.
The Paramedics were all highly professional and caring, and worked on Jamie for some time before transferring him to the ambulance and off to hospital. Sadly, they were unable to resuscitate him. He had died in his sleep and would have known nothing about it.
Jamie died from severe myocarditis and although rarely fatal, on this occasion it took a life.
We all miss Jamie so much and are devastated by his sudden exit from our lives, but he will live on in our hearts and memories forever.
Sleep Tight, Little Man. x
