Have you got a song in mind for your final farewell?

FUNERALS are no easy task, which is why pre-planning and pre-paying for your own funeral is such a considerate gift to your family and loved ones. Have you got a song in mind for your final farewell?

There are numerous considerations to factor in, including logistics, food and drink, casket purchase, and burial grounds, however, in most people’s opinion your farewell song of choice is what stays with people for the rest of their life when they think of you.

It’s also something personal to you and I honestly think it’s the one thing no one else can decide for you.
