    Dear Friend,
    Just to let you know that
                                  PAT BATT
                           passed away peacefully
                                     on
                               22nd April 2006
    
                                Tempus Fugit
                       My mirror says I’m growing old
                         My inside says it’s wrong.
                       My outside voice is quavering,
                         But inside there’s a song.
    
    
                       The wrinkles multiply, I know,
                           And yet inside my mind
                       A nice young thing of seventeen
                          Is there for me to find.
    
                   The teeth – well we won’t mention them,
                          The glasses we’ll forget.
                     The hair is grey – so what, I say,
                           For I’m not beaten yet.
    
                      I don’t feel old, except perhaps
                         When twinges are annoying
                    There’s lovely things to see and do,
                          And life is for enjoying.
    
                        I hope to keep my memories,
                       They’re much too good to lose.
                     They’ll dance inside my head when I
                          Hang up my dancing shoes.
