Harry Bird

“I’m not too good at words”, he says, “but I’ll do me best – I worked hard but was well loved and looked after. I liked working hard” – he sounds like he has a bad cough and something is on his lungs – he’s well rested now and ready to come back but this time he’ll choose an easier job and he laughs but he wouldn’t change anything else – his wife, his children, his siblings – well maybe one brother he’d lose and he laughs. Harry is an old pro at this, it’s been a while – he’s very contented – he was a simple man and very contented and still is – he says to keep smiling and laughing, your eyes sparkle when you laugh and he likes that – God bless ya and Merry Christmas Dad xxxx
