Thread Name: Singing at a funeral
Subject: RE: Singing at a funeral
I have done this three times,the last time being July this year.

My wife arranged the whole procedings and planned to read a couple of poems.She almost lost it on the second poem.I was due to sing alone,but a good mate of mine stepped up with me and we went for it.My knees were trembling,my eyes were watering,and in a strange way it pushed me on.

First time I did this was when I was asked by the father of his deceaced son(killed by a bomb)I thought about it for 5 seconds and said to myself that if I can't do this for a great friend then who the hell am I!

It got me through it
Good luck to you Sooz
