Have you read my letter Mum?
It went special delivery
I wrote all about our family
And how special you are to me
Have you read my letter Mum?
I really hope you have
For I placed it carefully in Dad’s hand
When he left us to be with you.
Also remembering with love her parents
Alec and Ettie Robertson.
