Thread Name: 'Funeral home' songs
Subject: RE: 'Funeral home' songs
At my mother's memorial service, I had the words/music to In The Garden printed in the program. She loved that hymn. And at her request, I hired a Dixieland band to play "Just a Closer Walk With Thee" at the beginning of the service and "When the Saints Go Marchin' In" at the end. They also played "I Wish That I Could Shimmy Like My Sister Kate" - another one of Mom's favorites. You might not want to play "Shimmy" at most funerals, though... :-)
