Grace and courage true.
Braving years as challenges
stirred Time, bringing change.
The spark in scene holding court,
Sense of duty strong.
But gentle smile,
the loving Gran to all there,
For all the ups, downs,
Views and questions of purpose,
She mastered the test.
And now we honour,
for better or worse, a life
Grand, Patient, Steady.
Devoted to world,
Proud of nation under her,
Honest to the end.

Hey sis. So sorry but the site isn’t letting me sign-in anymore. When I put my info there it doesn’t seem to recognize it. Can’t comment that way.
Can I comment here?
I wanted to say: “I’m finally reading this! Beautiful tribute.”
