Subject: Lyr Add: WILL THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN
I'm very sorry about your loss

A song I could recommend is WILL THE CIRCLE BE UNBROKEN
I guess you already know it, but here it is anyway:

I was standing by my window
On a cold and cloudy day
When I saw the hearse come rolling
For to take my love away

May the circle be unbroken
By and by, lord, by and by
There's a better home awaiting
In the sky, lord, in the sky

Well I told the undertaker
Undertaker, please drive slow
For the body, you are hauling, lord
I hate to see him go

Well I followed close behind him
Tried to hold up and be brave
But I could not hide my sorrow
When they laid him in the grave


My deepest condolences

Jacob
