Many years had passed until recently I saw you
but then to day the news came through.
A great old friend had suddenly passed away
he lived and worked hard in every way
he brought up his family and loved them all to
he had many great friends who remember him to
his favorite haunt was Raven pub in Southsea
where he would share a few beers with friends and family
where he would laugh and joke and drink merrily
but sadly yesterday evening he did pass away
may god bless you my dear friend in a special way
and with all the sadness of this news of your passing away
our thoughts are with your family as you grieve today
may sun lift the dark clouds which hang over you
and bring back the sunshine and warm memorys too
of Andrew Charlton dear old friend to me and many others
and proud father to great family we are all thinking of you
may you rest in peace old friend we will always remember you.
IN MEMORY OF ANDREW CHARLTON FROM SOMERSTOWN WHO DIED YESTERDAY.
