I know we are all feeling sad, That we've lost our Grandpa, our friend and our dad Together we have cried an ocean of tears As we feel so empty and hold many fears But Grandpa would want us to know he's in a good place And that he watching us all with a smile on his face As we have made him so proud, That he has raised such a beautiful and special family Thinking back now I really must say I feel lucky and privileged to have known Grandpa to this day For in my life, you have played a special part The memories I will treasure and keep close to my heart To each one of us he has loved and cared for, be thankful for the good times we shared Although he has gone we will always be together And his spirit will live on each one of us forever When you look to the sky, look for the brightest star As that will be Grandpa looking down on us from afar And now I would like to thank the good Lord above For blessing us with our Grandpa with his kindness and love Dear God, if it is not too much fuss Take extra special care of our Grandpa as he is very dear to us Grandpa if you are listening say a prayer for us every day Be sure to protect us and guide us on our way We know when God called you, you had to go But we want you to know Grandpa we miss you and love you so much.
