Hi Grandpa - I can't believe it's true,
There's a website to connect me to you!
We never even got the chance to know you,
You were taken when our Mother was just two.

The cowards that shot you and got away,
Will have to face God on Judgment Day.
Your wife, Rose, and 6 children, too
Were left behind, and lost without you.

Now Mae, and Stella, Bernice and Ray,
Florence and Francis, are with you today.
You are still in our thoughts and come what may,
One day we shall meet you in Heaven, we pray.

Your Grand daughter,

Grand Daughter
