These Autumn Leaves are Yours

This layout is in memory of Maxine Gay, Bob's Mother, on the anniversary of her death November 12, 2005. Maxine was 86 years old when she passed away. She was so proud of her grandsons. The song is a ballad by Scottish singer Paulo Nutini.


"Autumn leaves under frozen soles
Hungry hands turning soft and old
My hero crying
As we stood out there in the cold
Like these autumn leaves
I don't have nothing to hold.

Autumn leaves, they are are fading now
That smile I've lost
Well I've found somehow
Because you still live on
In your grandsons' eyes
These autumn leaves
Are yours tonight."
