Subject: RE: Music and Poems for a Funeral
To the tune of MacPherson's Lament:

He was the father of my babes
He was my dearest friend
He took great joy in risking his life
Who knew it would suddenly end?

So laughingly, so lustily, and so gustily lived he
We'll sing this song as he lived his life
And he lived it joyously

He was a loving father and mate
And a loyal friend clear through
And he tried to do the best he could
At whatever he tried to do

He risked his life disarming bombs
And when his work was done
Jumping from a plane or off a bridge
Was his idea of fun

I hope this is of use to you, Terri. You've had a rough year. May happy times come for you and yours.
