  18. My son, Ian was a 5th grade Buddy of Jackson’s. He spoke of Jackson all of the time. Jackson was his very favorite “Buddy”. Ian loved how Jackson was such a trouper that is high praise from Ian. He found Jackson hillarious and considered him a friend. Ian is so saddended by Jackson’s death. Our family is praying for yours. Thank you for sharing your son with our son.
