A funeral poem for comfort during unsettling times

Goodbye, Granddad

Heaven has received another angel,

The night sky another star.

Your life has become a loving memory.

I know you will never be far.

I know you are watching over me

As my life goes on.

I will treasure the memories I have of you.

I can’t believe you’re gone.

You were a loving, caring granddad.

You were there for me a lot.

You will always hold a place in my heart,

A loving, treasured spot.

You were really one in a million,

A cut above the rest.

All who knew you would agree.

You simply were the best.

So, Granddad, I will say goodbye.

I love and miss you with all my heart,

But as long as I have my loving memories,

We will never be too far apart.
