***********************************************************

I was only just 4 years old when he died, but I remember a very warm & loving Grandfather, and his tickling tash!

***********************************************************

You cannot see me or touch me
But I'm standing next to you
Your tears will only hurt me,
Your sadness makes me blue,
Be brave, and show a smiling face
Let not your grief shine through,
I love you from a different place,
Yet I'm standing next to you.
