I arrived on 9 April 2009 in a hurry
Life for me has been such a scurry
Chris, Pip, Maisie, Sophie & Jake
What a wonderful family they make!
We spent holidays in Perth visiting Granny & Grandad Scotland
An amazing week in Thurso further up the land
Daddy taught me how to fish, near John O’Groats
Then off to the Isle of Arran on a big fishing boat.
I go to work with Mummy at the shop in Earls Barton
As early as six days old, my son!
Everyone knew me as Baby Jack
Remember - the one who lived out the back!
In the workshop Daddy has guns to mend
It’s always open house in Jimmy’ s End
Game fairs & trade fairs, what fun
Don’t they know I’ m not yet one!
Mother’s Day lunch at The Fox & Hounds
Off-roading in Mum’s jeep we know no bounds
I squealed with delight as Daddy changed into top gear
Mummy got cross with the muddy mess, oh dear.
It’s 6 April 2010 and time for me to say goodbye
What a year I’ve had, thank you for all the highs
Grandpa & Nana have made a garden for seeds to sow
With flowers and veg - let’s hope they grow
To sum up my life as I look down from above
I had a lot of love and I hope I gave a lot of love
The family have named a star after me
Remember I’m always up there flying free
9 April 2009 - 6 April 2010
