SMITH, John Robert (Grandad Bob). May 14, 2017
Tears silently fall that others don’t see,
For the kind loving Grandad that meant the world to us.
You always had a smile to share,
Time to give and time to care,
Never selfish, always kind,
Such happy memories you have left behind.
– Love from Kerry, Peter, Jessica and Caleb xx
