A message from my late mate #1

by

Today was Steve’s funeral. Sad but joyful, celebrating the impact of an unforgettable man. I imagined what he’d have said... and said it for him.

‘Welcome friends, if you’re here right now,
Then I’ve given up the ghost.
I find I’m rather indisposed
Or I’d be a better host.

I’d love to share a tale with you,
Over a glass of wine,
But I find my glass is empty now
That I have crossed the line.

My landlord has just called time,
It seems I have to go.
I thought we’d get a lock-in,
But sadly he said no...’

    And Drew is delighted, Neville :) This is wonderful, very poignant but very funny. I loved his contributions on here and in fact I can't write about old cars without thinking of him and his escapades. Thanks for posting Neville.
