What would you have?
Closed

Ok, not what we really want to be thinking about, but always best to have something in mind and others aware of what we like or want when we die. I am curious, although it isn't the nicest thing to talk about or think about, it happens and we either plan it or it is left to others to plan. I know many people write their wills out, many people sort their funeral plans out etc. To me i think not only the eulogy says a lot about a person, but so does the music. We each choose music based on different reasons, i know as life goes on and on we may change our feelings towards what we may have wanted. But have you ever thought about what music or/and hymn you would like? At the moment i do love abide with me, i guess for songs it would be westlife's I'll see you again, Eva Cassidy's Songbird and not sure on another as there are so many, like: time to say goodbye, somewhere over the rainbow, wind beneath my wings, We'll meet again, Smile, etc etc. The list could go on and on. Have you got your songs done or do you know what you would liked played at your funeral?

This is very much on my mind atm, as my husband died very recently. Our daughters and I have been talking about the funeral but, though my husband has left a will, he had no interest in stating his wishes as regards his eventual (many years ahead, he thought) funeral. We're planning to have 'Swing Low, Sweet Chariot' played at the end of the service, because it does have spiritual meaning, plus my husband was a great rugby fan, where the song is often used to encourage the English team! Personally, I'd like Dave Gilmour's guitar solo from Pink Floyd's 'Comfortably Numb' played at the end of my funeral service. It's one of my favourite pieces of music ever although, as a Christian, there must be a number of rather more spiritual songs I could choose.
