At times like this I am always in awe of the outpouring of sympathy and support from fellow Mudcatters... perhaps evidence of the 'best of the Net'. Though totally inadequate, I offer my prayers and condolences along with those of my colleagues.
You have received some really wonderful suggestions for music and the written word. As a piper, I would recommend Going Home or Hector the Hero... either on the pipes or on the fiddle. Both are truly evocative tunes when played with emotion.
