One of the most popular pages on this website is Songs For My Grandpa’s funeral, where a few years ago one of our visitors wrote in to tell us the 4 songs his family carefully handpicked for his beloved Grandpa.
Plenty of other generous people have commented with the one song they chose for their father or grandfather.
To make them easier to find, I decided to compile them into one post right here.
I hope you find something helpful 🙂
A relatively unknown and under-rated song, it brings tears to my eyes every time I hear it. Canadian Crystal Shawanda sings about a young girl growing up while her loving dad knows all those precious moments he has with her are bittersweet because she will grow up and become an independent person. Beautiful song.
Lead Me Home is a traditional gospel country style song about going home to God after a person’s life is over. It is regularly played at memorial services in Southern USA.
This is an optimistic bittersweet song about how we look forward to the time when we will meet that person we love again one day but for now we say goodbye.
