Funeral Music Suggestions
Music for funerals, memorials, and celebrations of life do not have to be church hymns, and yet they can be. They should be an expression of the person whom you are celebrating AND comfortable for those attending. Our suggestion is that 3 songs be played, and the first one should be a “gathering” song (a song that is familiar to most everyone there.)
