Story

Megan, age ~ 4 years, and her family (friends Kimi and Aaron) had lost 2 dogs over the past year - they were both pretty old and been in the family long before she came!  Her grandpa died when they were visiting his home...he had been ill quite a long time, and he died in the night.  In the morning, Megan was told that Grandpa died, and she asked to see him.  She talked to him a while, and said goodbye and gave him a kiss.  She then asked her mom for her paper and crayons.  She went to the kitchen table and proceeded to draw a picture of Grandpa and the two dogs - all with party hats on.   Makes me wonder how and where we loose the wisdom children are born with.

Lyrics

Grandpa’s Gone

Grandpa’s gone to the place beyond

All dressed up – with his party hat on….

Dogs are there with their usual flare

Tails are waggin' – their nose in the air….

 

      He lived each day like it might be his last

      Savored every moment wouldn’t let it pass

      Treasured his family, his love was steadfast

      But now he’s gone   -   Yeah, he’s gone

He’ll be remembered as a really great guy

Quick with a joke and a twinkle in his eye….

Up for adventure, he’d try anything

Weave a great story – should’ve heard him sing….

      He lived each day like it might be his last

      Savored every moment wouldn’t let it pass

      Treasured his family, his love was steadfast

      But now he’s gone    -   Yeah, he’s gone

                   Fishin' and camping

                   Hiking in the wild

                   Started each day with his coffee and a smile

                   Yeah, now he’s gone

 Never said I love you when he was around

Don’t know why, guess the words were never found…

Grandpa’s gone to the place beyond

All dressed up – with his party hat on…
