The RNLI saves lives at sea.

Appreciation For Les Howell By Kelly Howell

This is a poem for my Grandad-
An extremely special man,
If anyone can sum him up
I’m hoping that I can….
A man so kind and helpful,
A smile upon his face;
Always treating people with dignity and grace.
He loved his cars and steam trains,
He loved to watch them race.
He laughed at Tom and Ginger;
Saw them play and saw them chase.
He worked hard in the navy,
Travelled far on many ships –
He’d talk about the places he’s seen
And offer help, advice and tips.
His Whole Life was his family –
His Wife and their Four Sons;
Who later gave them grand children
Who will miss him tons and tons.
Thank you dearest Papa,
May you rest and be at peace;
You may not still be with us
But the memories will never cease.

All my Love always
