Thought the world of you.
I remember the first time
you welcomed us rabble

Your heart warming smile, your twinkling eyes.

Thought the world of you.
I remember your wonderful home set in an earthly paradise.
With snow capped Fox Peak behind and your beautiful garden in the fore.

Thought the world of you.
I remember your quick wit, good humor.
You would say something and it would take everyone else a few seconds to catch up with you.

Thought the world of you.
I remember you bringing the perfect morning tea down to the sheep yards to wash away the scent of wet concrete.

Thought the world of you.
I remember those fabulous fruit cakes you baked for me.
Because you knew they were my favorite.

Thought the world of you.
I remember the tea towel in the lav
that described the rules of cricket to the uninitiated.

Thought the world of you.
I remember your chooks and the best tasting eggs anywhere.
And the berry cages with the yummyest black currants and raspberries

I remember the unconditional love you have for your family.
It exudes from each of your family
It radiates from every block, every corner of your home.

Thought the world of you.
I remember the hours you must have spent helping Orm
You and Orm were made for each other.
A bond of love that is an example to us all.

Thought the world of you.
I remember your amazing strength of will.
I believe that it was fundamental in your achieving your life's task with distinction, compassion, love…
For what more could anyone ask?

I remember your wonderful disposition toward life.
With that warming smile,
Your loving heart
