A Lt.Col., A Gentleman & My Grandpa!
Such an amazing man!
So witty and wise,
Always organized with a plan.
You liked to use your coupons,
And go out for good walks,
You sure did like to golf,
I savoured all our talks.
You appreciated a good scotch,
And wore neat little hats,
I think all will remember,
Your perfect hearty laugh.
You always had the nicest lawn,
And vacuuming was your household chore,
I still hear Grandma say, "Oh Elwyn",
A fond memory I cannot ignore.
You were always encouraging and supportive,
In ways you maybe never even knew,
But to those whose lives you touched,
They knew it to be true.
Even though your heart was marred,
It was still very much in tact,
At your weaker state I held your hand,
And you squeezed mine back.
So blessed you got to know my son,
Rex loved his Great Grandpa,
But we know you're happy now,
Re-united with Grandma!
As much as it saddens me today,
To know that you aren't here,
We celebrate your life well lived,
And special memories from those years!
Grandpa, thank you for all you have taught me. You made a huge impact on my life...xo
