Thread Name: Music and Poems for a Funeral
Subject: Music and Poems for a Funeral
My dear Mudcat friends,
as many of you will know already,( and thank you for your support) my first husband, the father of my children and my dearest friend died unexpectedly on Saturday morning.I will not go in to the grief and loss we are feeling, I'm sure you will know without words what we are going through.
We want him to have a non-religious funeral and to read poems and sing songs that he would feel appropriate.He was proud of being Scots.He was a bomb-disposal officer serving in N.Ireland and many other places.He was a mad sod who liked bungee jumping and parachuting.He was a man who loved his family, was loyal to his friends and tried to do his best in any and all situations.
Can you please help me with any songs/poems that might reflect something of his life if you can think of any.Many thanks
