Jayden S. Pressley

Jayden S. Pressley, 1 year old, of Orange, died unexpectedly Saturday, April 7, 2018 in Heywood Hospital of Gardner.
Jayden was born in Gardner on February 26, 2017, the son of Alysha Munoz of Orange and Jay Pressley, Jr. of Athol.
Besides his parents, he leaves two sisters Jayla Munoz and Jasmyn Pressley of Orange; maternal grandmother, Heather (Bates) Munoz of Gardner and maternal step-grandfather, Leo Theriault; paternal grandparents, Shannon Cundiff of Atlantic City, NJ and Jay Pressley, Sr. of Baltimore, MD; maternal great-grandmothers, Anne (O'Hara) Bates of Hull, MA and Janet (Lincoln) Morse of Alabama; paternal great-grandmother, Cynthia Holmes of New York City; aunts, Meagan Munoz, Paige Harmon, and Brea Whitehead; and uncles, Gavin Munoz and Jaylon Pressley. Jayden was predeceased by his maternal grandfather, Leslie Munoz.
The best word to describe Jayden is perfect. He was the most perfect baby in every way. Always happy. Always smiling. And the sound of his laugh would fill any room with joy. He was his mother's peace, his father's strength and his sisters' best friend. He greeted everyone with the biggest smile and brought light into the lives of everyone around him. Though he was here for such a short time, he brought such large amounts of beauty and happiness into this world. Saying he will be missed is an understatement.
Calling hours will be held in the Boucher Funeral Home, Inc., 110 Nichols Street, Gardner on Saturday, April 14th from 1:00 p.m. to 3:00 p.m.
Memorial contributions may be made to St. Jude Children's Research Hospital, 501 St. Jude Place, Memphis, TN 38105 or to Shriners Hospitals for Children, Office of Development, 2900 Rocky Point Drive, Tampa, FL 33607. Please reference in memory of Jayden S. Pressley.

Jay, There are no words that can express how I feel for you at this time. I know your heart is breaking and it all seems so unfair, but just imagine never knowing such a precious angel, imagine never having had him at all. Such a beautiful blessing that he was to you the wonderful spirit that you were blessed with even for such a short time. They say time heals but the scar remains. Please just remember every morning that you wake up you have a chance to honor him, a chance to be a better YOU for him! I'm always here if you need to talk. I'm just a phone call away. Blessings to you and I hope that you find some peace. He such a precious gift and now your precious angel watching over you encouraging you everyday to be the man that you were meant to be. With much love and respect I send this tribute. Just for Today - For Bereaved Parents Just for today I will try to live through the next 24 hours and not expect to get over my child's death, but instead learn to live with it, just one day at a time. Just for today I will remember my child's life, not just his death, and bask in the comfort of all those treasured days and moments we shared. Just for today I will forgive all the family and friends who didn't help or comfort me the way I needed them to. They truly did not know how. Just for today I will smile no matter how much I hurt on the inside, for maybe if I smile a little, my heart will soften and I will begin to heal. Just for today I will reach out to comfort a relative or friend of my child, for they are hurting too, and perhaps we can help each other. Just for today I will free myself from my self-inflicted burden of guilt, for deep in my heart I know if there was anything in this world I could of done to save my child from death, I would of done it. Just for today I will honor my child's memory by doing something with another child because I know that would make my own child proud. Just for today I will offer my hand in friendship to another bereaved parent for I do know how they feel. Just for today when my heart feels like breaking, I will stop and remember that grief is the price we pay for loving and the only reason I hurt is because I had the privilege of loving so much Just for today I will not compare myself with others. I am fortunate to be who I am and have had my child for as long as I did. Just for today I will allow myself to be happy, for I know that I am not deserting her by living on. Just for today I will accept that I did not die when my child did, my life did go on, and I am the only one who can make that life worthwhile once more. Vicki Tushingham
