Too sad for a witty title
December 13, 2012 4:47 PM Subscribe
My grandad passed away today. My family have asked me to find a poem he might like, to read at his funeral. He was an engineer who would only read 'factual' things, such as instructional/educational books and later in life, a lot of biographies. He didn't go in for poetry at all that I know of. Would like to avoid 'Do not stand at my grave and cry'. Any reccommendations?

I'm not sure when the funeral is yet but I am panicking and blanking on this. Thank you in advance for any guidance.
