With motherly love and tested patience,
As dedicated as a pillar box in service to "Her Majesty", if you please...!
This certificate testifies,
Dr and Mrs Connie Mary Byrom,
Have most successfully perambulated,
To three whole score and ten!
Across the rainbow...
Through Blessings, Beauties,
(even) boring relief... to beastly tribulations!
Volumes of undignified grunts,
Belly aches, bottom lip wobbles, et al,
Yet even as a bright blue sky,
Over Scotia's often broody face
The occasional nod, hint & smile,
Of gratitude,love and appreciation!
Having been so busy filling a lifetime with a mountain of clutter & achievement!
Not least of all in raising your five strapping weans,
While tending to quite a husband!
We have asked "Trees for Life" to plant a grove of native trees especially in your honour,
Somewhere in the Scottish Highlands to celebrate reaching 70 years of age...
Lots and lots of love x 5: Simon, Thomas, Sarah, Calum and Rob...
Keep on perambulating those mountains in spirit, or with the aid of wheelchair access,
and blue badge authorisation if necessary!
