Thread Name: What song do you want at your funeral?
Subject: RE: What song do you want at your funeral?
Great reading through the thread - gives a little insight to the personalities behind the pseudonyms !!

I'd just love if Regina Nathan coulkd make it to the Mass and give "Hail Queen of Heaven" (an old time hymn). And maybe one of my sons to recite "Young and Old" by Charles Kingsley. I taught it to all my kids when they were small. Never liked Kingsley much as a person (mainly because he was so biassed against Ireland!) but he got some feeling into that little poem in the Water Babies.
