Births & Funerals & Weddings - what great ideas! Does Garth have any idea how much we miss him?
Report as inappropriate
My second son was born to this song playing on repeat. It was the most relaxing and beautiful way I could imagine bringing him into this world. Milohallmark , I LOVE the idea of having it played at a funeral - I'll have to tuck that away and add it to my will :)
