Happy heavenly 15th birthday Jack! I hope you are celebrating big in heaven today, surrounded by the angels. Keep playing sports in the sky, little buddy. I feel like you would’ve become a pro player one day. I’m sorry the world missed out on seeing that. Such a bright boy, may your precious soul be at peace!

To Jack's family and friends, I didn't know Jack, or anyone who were in that school that day. I just wanted to say that I pray that God has begun to heal those wounds and there"s more happy memories then sad. I know that somethings will never heal but know that you are in many peoples prayers .

Jack, It has been over 8 years since you and 19 other little children and 6 beloved educators, left this earth and became part of God’s angels. I never met you or anyone else who was inside that school, so at times I think to myself, they have to be here living their life somewhere in this world, but hits hard because I then realize the reality of the situation. It hurts to know you all are gone, but I hope that heaven is even more beautiful than any of us could ever imagine. I hope you’re at peace. I hope your family has found peace. They have you, a beautiful little guardian angel, looking over them until they reunite with you once again. Sending my love and prayers. ❤

Hello Dean, Tricia and Ben. I pray that you all are doing well today. This message is for you to know that your son Jack has been etched in my mind and heart every since I saw the picture of that big smile of his in 2012. Its unexplainable, I just liked him when I saw him and later read about his tenacity and inspiration for life as I continue to read about him today. I am 68 years old now and I feel in my heart that he would have been a real difference maker in the world today. I really hope you all get this message because I want you to know that I will continue to pray for your family. May God continue to bless each of you.

My grief can only hint at what you must feel but know this: when a child is taken so young, everyone loses because we will never see nor benefit from the wonderful things we can only guess he might have accomplished. He was a bright light in a world that needs light. I pray that your family will get the healing we all need. Bless you and bless Jack. Come back, buddy.

And I will rejoice in Jerusalem and exult in my people; No more will there be heard in her the sound of weeping or a cry of distress.” Isa 65:19. A wonderful promise Jack Pinto is surely missed prayers go out to all the families and friends.

When the Sandy Hook tragedy happened, our family was shaken with grief and disbelief. I still shed tears thinking about the families that have had to endure such a senseless tragedy. I cannot imagine losing any of our children. When the tragedy happened, we had just "adopted" our "elf on the shelf" and or family decided to name our elf Jack, after Jack Pinto. Every year we remember you Jack, and all of the victims and families. We pray for you all and you should know you will never be forgotten Jack. Tell all your friends in heaven we look forward to meeting you someday.....

When the tragedy of Sandy Hook took place, I asked my circle of family and friends to each choose a child to remember, along with their own family every year, just as though they were a member of our own family. I chose Jack Pinto and made a special remembrance..an image cut from wood of Jesus carrying the a cross with Jack's name and dates on it. Rest in peace, Jack. I know you are greatly missed.

It can be so hard to face the first year without Jack , but God can give you all the strength you need to carry you through. He is aware of your pain and whatever you are going through emotionally. .. let him help you he knows what you need. (Jeremiah 29:12) . . .And YOU will certainly call me and come and pray to me, and I will listen to YOU. . .

‘Let the children come to me, and do not stop them, because the kingdom of God belongs to persons like them.' Then Jesus takes the children in his arms, and blesses them. Isn't it good to know that Jesus loves little children? He is resting now soon we will see him again.
