What do you sing at a friend’s wake?
It shouldn’t be a sad song – do you really want to add dark clouds when the loss, especially like this one, is already so sad?
My buddy was 48 and a regular tennis player … and he collapsed on the court from a massive heart attack.
He also happened to be a songwriter (actual, professional) and a well-known emcee of open-mic shows in Southern California. So, last night, his widow organized a final open-mic night at the funeral home … to send him off.
