When I was a little girl,
You taught me how to knit and pearl, and if I ate my crusts my hair would curl,
If a thunder bolt should strike Collier Row, under the stairs we would go...
When I was older,
You taught me life was for laughing, dancing and living, Never taking - always giving.
Your glass was always half full, even after a flutter when the Scotch bottle and your purse were half empty! :-)
For you friends and family were plenty.
Birthdays and Christmas a card was always sent, but sadly across the miles not enough time and company spent.
Nan I'm so sorry I didn't get to say goodbye at the end of your days,
But I want you to know I will miss you today and always.
I hope that in a while, when I think of you it will be with a smile,
As I'll picture you dancing again with Grandad Ted, side by side just like the day you were wed,
I love you Nan, it's so sad your life had to end,
Goodbye from Lindsey, your Grandaughter and your friend.
