Message for Brenda Walmsley


Adi Redfearn

We had a wonderful grandmother
One who never really grew old
Her smile was made of sunshine
And her heart was solid gold

Her eyes were bright as shining stars
And in her cheeks fair roses you see.
We had a wonderful grandmother,
And that’s the way it will always be.

But take heed, because
She’s still keeping an eye on all of us,
So let’s make sure
She will like what she sees.

Love you always Grandma, thanks for making me the man I am. Until we meet again. X
