A grand old age, they all said so
But still it hurt to see her go.
And in the end, Not taking long;
So short a time To move along.
Leaving behind this vale of tears,
Family and friends made through the years.
She had a life that many say
Was just and rewarding, for in her way
She lived and loved those that she knew
Harbouring no grudge, paying her due.
For husband, son and daughter too
She gave her love, she saw them through.
In troubled times she was right there
No need to ask, with strength she'd bear
Them through it all and take their part
With selfless love and generous heart.
As Nan, she loved the children who
Grew up so fast and loved her too.
So weep not for a life so blessed,
Remember Ellen, gone to rest.
I hope that you like it.
