Thread Name: What song do you want at your funeral?
Subject: RE: What song do you want at your funeral?
I attended a memorial service recently for the husband of a friend. I didn't really know him at all, but upon leaving the service (which was surprisingly upbeat), I felt as though I knew him a bit. They played some Jimmy Buffett song at the service (one with which I was not familiar) and it gave me an idea: When I'm on my journey don't you grieve after me, (repeat twice more) I don't want you to grieve after me." "On My Journey" was recorded by the Chad Mitchell Trio in 1961 on the "Mighty Day On Campus" album. It seems to be a traditional song. CMT fan that I am and have always been, I guess it would only be appropriate to play that song at my MEMORIAL SERVICE (funerals are too morbid). Ray
