Jack Kendrick Moran is ready to wreck this house.  He doesn’t miss school, but he does miss his Papa and Nona as well as Spirit Halloween; he worries that it might not open in the Fall.  A sad situation has presented as a possible business solution for Spirit Halloween that could benefit both parents and kids alike.
