A Name to be Proud Of, Hannah Jo
Your great, great, great grandma was Hannah.
Your great, great grandpa was Joe.
Hannah was my grandma and
My daddy's name was Joe.
I'd like for you to know them,
Though they lived so long ago.
I had a devoted daddy
And my grandma was dear to me.
So Hannah Jo, I'm sorry
You didn't get to see
Those two wonderful folks who lived
Before you came to be.
And though you'll never know them
What I'm telling you is true,
Each one of those beautiful people
Is surely a part of you.
Be proud of your name, my darling
And never bring it shame.
For two better folks never lived than they
Those two who share your name.
With love, Great Grandma Johnson
