“When I quit this mortal shore

“Any mosey ‘round this earth no more

“Don’t weep, don’t sigh, don’t grieve, don’t sob;

“I may have struck a better job.

“Don’t go and buy a large bouquet

“For which you’ll find it hard to pay.

“Don’t stand around me looking blue;

“I may be better off than you!”

Arrangments confidently entrusted to Telford’s Mid-Island Memorial Services, Ladysmith.
