75.       OOM PAN

You qualify as one of my naughtiest uncles
And shared that post with late Uncle Bowen.
That is how I remember you
Correctly from my childhood years,
Always up to some kind of mischief
Scaring the baboons
And family
With a little canon at Dwaalboom.
To brewing beer at your Waterkloof house,
I hope it was not something stronger.
I remember Auntie Louise support and kindness
And the wondrous dishes.
I also remember Gerrit,
Herman and Kobus
As we played during my teen years.
You all was always kind to me
Your interests help to pull me through.
Thank you for looking after my mother
It takes a great burden of me.
