"Remember him with a smile today,
He was not one for tears,
Reflect instead on memories,
Of all the happy years.
Recall to mind the way he spoke,
And all the things he said,
His strength, his stance, the way he walked,
Remember these instead.
The good advise he'd give us,
His eyes that shone with laughter,
So much of him will never die,
but live on ever after."
