Subject: RE: What song do you want at your funeral?
ToulouseCruise,

Amazing Grace was my dad's favorite too, and the one he requested, along with "Danny Boy". Family left the music up to me, and I took it as an honor to make sure Dad had a good sendoff! Although I didn't play, two of my good friends played at the service, and then my son sang Amazing Grace. Tough gig, but he pulled it off with just a little quaver. At the gravesite we had a piper play it again, as Dad requested.

Now I can't hear the song without misting up.
