Sorry to hear about your dad Alison. I lost my dad in April so know what you are going through. We couldn't make our minds up what song to have at dad's funeral, so eventually mum decided have one of the hymns from their wedding service.



Alison Report 7 Jun 2008 11:09

That was nice Maggy.

Well I looked to see what was number one when they were married it was - Hermans Hermits - Im into something good. Which is a bit upbeat for the occasion but we are looking for something that has some meaning like your Mum did.

So sorry to hear of your loss Alison.....
my condolences to you all,

was it this one?

September of my years?

One day you turn around, and it's summer
Next day you turn around, and it's fall
And all the winters and the springs of a lifetime
Whatever happened to them all
As a man, who as always had the wandering ways
I keep looking back to yesterdays
'Til a long forgotten love appears
And I find, I'm sighing softly as I near
September, the warm September of my years
As I man, who has never pauses at wishing wells
Now I'm watching children's carousels
And their laughter's music to my ears
And I find, that I'm smiling gently as I near
September, the warm September of my years
- The golden warm September of my years



Alison Report 7 Jun 2008 11:26

I will get that one to and let my mum listen to them,

Hi Alison

I'm sorry to hear of your loss, at my dad's funeral we played "That's Life" at the end of the service which was quite apt as it's about a journey through life. I've just been listening to it again on youtube and it's brought tears to my eyes.

Very sorry to hear your news, sending you my deepest sympathies.

Have you tried on here

has a list of songs that Frank recorded from 1939 -1994 (long list though) but hopefully it is there.

Good Luck!

Sorry to hear of your loss. It's not an easy time and we found a month ago with mum that it was the music that was the hardest part of the arrangements.

Take care,

Heather Report 7 Jun 2008 13:15

Alison, so sorry to hear of your loss, we had What a Wonderful World by Louis Armstrong for my dad as he loved nature all his life and that was one of his favourite songs.

Meanwhile, O.C. read your thread and as she is no longer a member on here, she asked me to add the following:

"There is a post on General board, by Alison

She is looking for a Frank Sinatra song to play at her dad's funeral - I am sure the one she means is September Song. "
