You taught Tarzan how to swim,

And swing from tree to tree.

You taught us to build sand castles

For the entire world to see.

We grew tomatoes in the green house,

And played cricket in the summer,

"Who smashed that window

Was it you or your brother?"

You taught Fred Astaire how to dance

We believe you to this day

You taught us the meaning of laughter,

And that never goes away.

Heavens holding on to you,

You’re too valuable to lose.

You’re up there to teach Grandad

They need you to.

The last words you said to me,

Were goodbye pet

Words I've never heard clearer

And will never forget.

For all of us a special goodbye,

You are a legend

You didn't die.

We want to thank you,

But don’t know where to begin.

We love you Grandad,

You taught Tarzan how to swim.?
