the music from nick's memorial

kim's passing has prompted me to do something i've meant to do for some time in finally posting the music i put together for nick's memorial service this past december. i must say it was cathartic having the task of gathering the music for the memorial service and reception. i found several web pages to be helpful in this task, but by far the best resource was http://www.thebestsongs.net/funeral_songs.html if anyone has this task.

go rest high on that mountain by vince gill was played during the memorial and the first song of the reception
