Thread Name: 'Danny Boy' at Catholic funeral
Subject: RE: 'Danny Boy' at Catholic funeral
A dear young friend of mine, Bob Myles, suffered from Cystic Fibrosis. He had lived much longer than was expected of young folks suffering from this horrid disease. Married beautiful Lisa, had 4 kids. I miss him today. One of his last requests was that I sing "Green Fields of France" at the funeral mass. The priest had no problems with it, and I sang it after communion during the time of reflection. Bless that boy's heart, I miss him today.
