Dear Funeral Widow,
I am deeply sorry for your loss (really I am, I loved him, too). However, it is really hard to plan an "upbeat" service at your request with the 6 songs you choose. PLEEEEEEAAAAAAASE will you trust me to pick some that provide this message of hope and joy you seem to be seeking? I promise I won't go all "contemporary" on you. Just wondering.
