Thread Name: 'Funeral home' songs
Subject: RE: 'Funeral home' songs
Before my Dad died we would go every Christmas and sing at the nursing home where he lived. One year we did Felis Navidad and Dad loved the song. He had never heard it. He kept asking us to repeat it. I think we did it four times!!! Then every year we would sing "Felis Lavidad" (as my Dad pronounced it!!) several times during the night. My Dad died nine days after this year's Christmas Concert at the nursing home and we asked the organist if she could play Felis Navidad as we escorted Dad from the church. She played a very slow and majestic version on the organ. Most people didn't even realize what the song was but we did....it was awesome!! So for me and my family, Felis Navidad will forever be a "funeral song"......

So, do ya think it'll catch on???? haha
