Its often said we are the sum of our parts,
So where to start with Lyn:
Loving wife and inspiring mother,
Best friend and a husband’s lover,
Mother-in-law and doting Nana,
Eldest child and oldest daughter,
Light of her mother’s eye,
Father’s arms swinging her high,
Niece and granddaughter
To both Phillips and Cooks,
Crossword solver, devourer of books,
Aunt to some, cousin to more,
Patient teacher and staff mentor,
Red wine drinker, gentle peace-maker,
Francophile, bride in this aisle,
Husband beside her with loving smile.
From a sweet little girl with golden ringlets
To a life full lived, no regrets.
None of this may be new to you –
But on top of all this
She was our big sister,
And I’ll miss her, in the years ahead.
I thought we’d grow old
Like Mam and her sisters,
Go batty together,
Drink gin and tonic, measure for measure,
Grow wrinkly and crinkly,
Be the old folks at family parties,
Gossiping on in our eighties and nineties.
Nos dda, sleep tight,
Rest your soul in heaven’s height
And when the time is right
I’m confident we’ll meet again.
