Subject: RE: What song do you want at your funeral?
Ralph Funaro wrote this one which is my favorite.It epitomized my dad,and when performed @ his funeral, left not a dry eye in the congregation.
My New Life Has Begun

Countless letters of gratitude to Ralph Funaro, composer of the most popular Christian funeral song requested in the Northeast, are indicative of its power. WBZ-4 Boston incorporated it in the 2001 Edgewater Memorial Service broadcast. It has also been aired on channels 7, 5, 68, 56 and 27 (New England) along with many radio broadcasts. More poignantly, it has consoled thousands of the grieving faithful with its powerful message which embodies the essence of Christianity.
