My mum died last week & now we are able to plan her funeral.

I've got the middle (Over The Rainbow, Eva Cassidy) & The leaving ( Intermezzo Cavalleria Rusticana ).

I've Chosen the reading, but am stuck on Going in music. I want something soothing & calm if you know what I mean?

Any suggestions gratefully received

Hello Lin, Sorry to read that your mum has died.
Pachelbel Canon in D is quite soothing.

Johnathan and Charlotte singing Canto Della Terra was my choice for my husband.

My condolences on the loss of your Mother.

Thank you for sharing your choices with me , all beautiful
Things are coming together now.

Mum hadn't been seen by a Dr for over two weeks so it had to go to Coroner.

Dr. did the death certificate, but is now on holiday so can't do his part of the green form until he gets back on 6Th Sept.

Fortunately we were able to book the funeral for 8th.

Hoping Dr arrives home safe & sound.
