Thread Name: 'Danny Boy' at Catholic funeral
Subject: RE: 'Danny Boy' at Catholic funeral
A wonderful, informative discussion. I've learned some info I'd never known about "Danny Boy" and the Catholic Church, and I've been reminded of the old "They Will Know We Are Christians" song which was so ecumenical that it was sung at the youth-group meetings in the fundamentalist-Protestant church I attended (i.e. was forced to attend).

But something seems to be missing here -- maybe it was covered in another thread (if so, I didn't see it go by) -- so I'd like to make sure it gets mentioned here. I'd like to express my condolences to PoppaGator on the passing of his mother. I hope that her decision to donate her body to medical science will benefit many other folks.
