MCEWING – In memory of Jim McEwing, a much loved husband and dad, who died on February 17, 2008.
In the ten years since you left us,
We hope we’ve made you proud,
With heads held high we’ve dried our tears,
And learned again to laugh out loud.
We’ve made so many new memories,
Without you by our side,
And to your grandchildren you never met,
We talk about you with pride.
But we know you’ve kept an eye on things,
“Hoot’s hepnin?” we can still hear you say,
And “Life is for the living,
Make the most of every day.”
So, as our thoughts turn to you,
Especially as we mark another year,
We hold on to those memories,
That will always keep you near.
– With love, Susan, Iona and Ross.
