When you walk through a storm
Hold your head up high
And don't be afraid
Of the dark

At the end of a storm
There's a golden sky
And the sweet silver song
Of a lark

Gerry And The Pacemakers - You´ll Never Walk Alone Lyrics
Death is the finality of the very first breath you take. It's the moment of goodbye until another life. Saying goodbye is always the hardest thing to do, but not so if it can be explained through well chosen words. Music, as they say, is a healer which is why it is the most crucial part of a funeral. Songs at funerals must be selected carefully keeping the mind the situation. The bereaved need a little encouragement and consolation to cope up. The melodies of funeral songs help the attendees to embrace their sorrows and provide the strength to move on.
