Happy Birthday Lulu Craig

Happy Birthday, Grandma

August 12, 1868

Happy Birthday, Grandma

Seems like just a short while ago

Miss your gentle voice

And carefully pondered comments

Your compassionate touch

I remember your soft laughter

A cross between a chuckle and a giggle

And “let’s blow a minute”

That means sit and take a rest

Your petite stature but grand character

You are a “Woman’s Woman, a lady among ladies”

A vision of refinement

Whose goal always

“A chap can just do his best, that is all he can do”

Happy Birthday, Grandma

    Lovely picture and you can even see the sea of sky in the background.

    What a lovely photo of Mrs. Craig.
    I remember being present at one of Mrs. Craig’s birthdays as a child out on “The Dry”.
