Ding Dong Bell

Five foot nothing, Round as a rubber ball and just as bouncy Known to all and sundry as Nanny “Ding Dong” Bell Thought the Ding Dong hilarious, recognized a term of affection. Midwife, child minder, mother confessor Stalwart in church, cleaner on weekdays, organ player on Sundays Lender of single shillings when meters ran out Rescuer of stray dogs, cats, and hungry children Excellent cook and loving grandmother A friend to all with no distinctions. When she died a light was extinguished in our village.
