“Lovely”

That’s what we all think of you.

How you disliked that song, that tune.

A cringe, with a twinkle in your eye,

If it was sung as we went by.

 

Always your prime lady

Our organised Nanny.

Next in line, “Pet”,

Your daughters Kate and Janet.

 

“Mischief” and “Cheeky”,

The nicknames you used freely,

For your grand-daughters

You loved to tease so dearly.

 

After your 5 grand-daughters

Came your precious doggies:

Like Titch, Sandy

Zeus and Penny.

 

Sausages on the braai,

Anything to be outside,

Alternatively a turkey sandwich

With a Castle on the side.

 

Ever the quiet support,

With a mischievous twinkling eye,

Enjoying your Guinness

And Bells whiskey on the side.

 

Never keen for a photo,

Never keen on a fuss,

Just a Fab Granddad

With Love for everyone of us.

 

May God’s peace have set you free,

Enjoy your rest in heaven,

Our Granddad with a Double D.
