Mourners at the funeral of tragic seven-year-old Jackson Turner have heard how he was his mother’s “perfect wee man”.
Lynsey Turner paid tribute to her son – who died after a three-car crash in Newtownabbey on Boxing Day – at a thanksgiving service at Irvine’s Funeral Home in Carrickfergus on Saturday.
He was later taken for committal to Roselawn Crematorium.
Ms Turner said Jackson was “never in a hurry”, had a great sense of humour and wanted to be “friends with everybody”.
The primary four pupil at Sunnylands Primary School in Carrickfergus had been travelling with his little sister Ally and his grandmother Margaret to his mother’s home at the time of the crash.
He died that night in the Royal Victoria Hospital with his parents by his side.
