Cockayne’s Aunt Thanks Locals for Kindness


My nephew, Jamie Cockayne was a true believer in living life to its fullest, until that fatal night when a group of boys unimaginably and violently took Jamie’s life.

Each person born is touched by God and given the gift of life. Jamie was truly graced with an immeasurable love for living, which he shared with each person he touched.

To all the locals of St. John who extended their heartfelt words and tears for Jamie, we thank you. Your kindness will always be remembered by our family.

The boys who committed this horrific crime, one day will have to answer to God and hopefully to the law.
