    On a more serious note I would like 'Farther Along' played at some time, and probably 'You'll Never Walk Alone'....

    That's my choice to Carolyn, You'll never walk alone (version from Stand by me Cd) and I would go for If I can dream

    Lots of great choices already made here.

    One I would strongly consider is If We Never Meet Again. It's certainly appropriate for that kind of occasion, and especially touching, having been given the Elvis treatment. Just beautiful.

    Soon we'll come to the end of life's journey
    And perhaps never meet anymore
    Till we gather in heaven's bright city
    Far away on that beautiful shore

    If we never meet again this side of heaven
    As we struggle through this world and its strife
    There's another meeting place somewhere in heaven
    By the side of the river of life

    Where the charming roses bloom forever
    And where separations come no more
    If we never meet again this side of heaven
    I will meet you on that beautiful shore
    ...you won't forget me when I go.

    If I go the song for ol times sake will be played

    Before you go walk out on me
    Take a look around tell me what you see
    Here I stand like an open book
    Is there something here you might have overlooked
    'Cause it would be a shame if you should leave
    And find that freedom ain't what you thought it would be

    The years we had were not all bad
    In fact I know the good outweighed the bad
    Now you say that you've grown tired
    You want to be by yourself a while
    It would be a shame if you should go
    And find that freedom was a long, long time ago

    I know that you can't stand the chains that bind you
    They just keep on drivin' us apart
    You could go where I could never find you
    But could you go far enough to get away from your heart

    So one more time, for ol' times sake
    Come and lay your head upon my chest
    Please don't throw this moment away
    We can forget the bad and take the best
    If you don't have nothing left to say
    Let me hold you one more time for ol' times sake

    If you don't have nothing left to say
    Let me hold you one more time for ol' times sake

    I agree with you Riley. Plus I would like Just Pretend, How Great Thou Art and maybe also If I Can Dream.

    Yup, that would definitely be mine too Lonnie. If We Never Meet Again. I plan on meeting all my loved ones on that beautiful shore (pets included).

    This is certainly food for thought Geordie

    The songs I would choose are:-

    How Great Thou Art (my fave gospel song) (before the service)
    Today, Tomorrow and Forever (its a special song to me) (during the service)
    Forget Me Never (this song I would dedicate to all my family, friends and my soul mate) (after the service)

    If I should go, forget me never
    Please say that you'll remember me
    I pray the dreams we share together
    Will shine on in your memory

    Each time a star falls out of heaven
    It leaves the sky a deeper blue
    So if we part, forget me never
    And don't forget my love for you
    And don't forget my love for you

    You ask how long I love you, I'll tell you true,
    until the Twelfth of Never, I'll still be loving you

    Yes, I can grasp the fascination. It's the kind of song I'd want. Beautiful lyrics; it's so real concerning earthy life, yet peaceful in it's expectation for life eternal.

    Another list, goodie!
    1. Mama Like the Roses
    2. Milky White Way
    3. Bridge over Troubled Water (Cause I love this sung by Elvis)
    4. Peace In the Valley (ditto)
    5. Clean Up Your Own Backyard (you gotta know my family!)
    6. Miracle of the Rosary (cause I'm catholic, & with my family, there has to be at least one religious/church sounding song)
    My list will be a long one - so hopefully, no one will get up & talk!


    Just pretend, I'm holding you, and whispering things soft and low.
    And think of me, how it's gonna be and just pretend I didn't go

    Shake, Rattle & Roll I'm going out with a bang

    I dream a world where man no other man
    will scorn. Where LOVE will bless the earth
    and peace its paths adorn...
