    Well, I`ve thought about it, and....my choises are

    You`ll never walk alone
    Help me
    If that isn`t love
    Somebody bigger than you and I
    My way(Elvis in concert)
    His hand in mine

    Could easily pick more, but I don`t think they will play them all after all, so just these.....(wrote them down, hope it`ll be a long time before they are beeing played in church)

    When my casket would be entering I would have them play Also Sprach Zarathustra. Then Lead Me, Guide Me. (He touched me, what a great album.) And I would have them say when the casket leaves Ladies and Gentlemen Joe has left the building.
    "When I was a child, ladies and gentlemen, I was a dreamer. I read comic books, and I was a hero in the movie. So every dream that I ever dreamed has come true a hundred times. I learned very early in life that without a song, the day would never end; without a song, a man ain't got a friend; without a song, the road would never bend; without a song. So I keep singing a song." - Elvis Presley

    2) Memories

    3) We Can Make The Morning

    That's a great one , I think I will steal it from you if you don't mind , I will replace Andrew with Tina
    For the songs it will definitely be 'American Trilogy', 'I'll Never Walk Alone' with reprise, 'Life' and others I haven't decided yet, maybe something to make them smile again....
    And I've instructed my daughter in case I would be in a coma or something similar, she must make sure that I can listen to Elvis 24/7
