You meant so much to all of us You were special and that’s no lie You brightened up the darkest day And the cloudiest of sky Your smile alone warmed the hearts Your laughter was like music to hear I would give absolutely anything To have you well and standing near Not a second passes when you’re not on our minds Your love we will never forget The hurt will heal in time Many tears we have seen and cried They have all poured out like rain I know that you are happy now Back with your forever loves again To the only gentlemen We have ever known We will miss you so dearly Pop Easter and Boxing Day Will never be the same again. May you still be our 3rd umpire watching over us from above 🏏 Love and miss you Jo, Angus & Zara McPharlin
