    I Have Lots!

    First...Dust in the Wind by Kansas (I think) See. I want that one because I want to be cremated. And Lovelove that song. Next, Schism by Tool. I'm a huge fan and if my sisters don't play it, I've said I would haunt them. :) Next...any song by Ella Fitzgerald. I would be so happy...

    He Will Carry Me

    This is my favorite Christian song ever.  I really don't want a funeral. So just take my ashes out and throw them to the wind and play this song and know that  I am okay. There should be no tears either.  I won't be there anyway because by then my Lord will have...

    This song is almost an old southern hymn. Gram wrote it after three of his friends died. It is the embodyment of mournful sadness and longing. I want ******* crying when I go. Lol j/k
