KELSEY SAYS "TO BRING A WEE PICNIC" AND, IF YOU CAN, REMEMBER
OUR 'CHEEKY' GRANNY AND GRANDAD PRETSELL.
ENA MARGARET KING (10th Apr 1911 - 27th Nov 2005)
and
WILLIAM PRETSELL (28th Mar 1910 - 13th Oct 1981)
They married 24th Feb 1933.
"TOMORROW IS ANOTHER DAY"
Do not stand around and weep, we are not here, we do not sleep,
We are the thousand winds that blow.
We are the diamond glints on snow.
We are the sunlight on ripened grain.
We are the gentle autumn rain.
When you waken in the morning's hush.
We are the swift, uplifted rush of quiet birds in circling flight.
We are soft stars that shine at night.
So do not stand around and cry.
We are not there.
We did not die.
