    this is hard to read. i am so very, very sorry. play/show whatever you want. at my brother's funeral, as soon as i got in the door i handed them a tape and told them to stop the awful music they were playing. you should have seen everybody's faces when Diana Ross and the Supremes started coming out of those speakers. they all knew how much my brother loved that music.

    so, do what you want to do. he's your baby. anything you choose to do is appropriate.

    i have no way of making this time any easier, but you are in my thoughts.

    ...it's worse than we thought. it turns out the people at the white house are not secret muslims, they're nerds.

    So sorry for the heartbreaking news? Play all the music he loved and surround yourself with it.

    I also have a son about the same age. My deepest sympathies to you and your husband. There are no words.

    When Michael's sisters got here last night...I just asked for imput and they thought along with me that I wouldn't put a suit coat on their brother. I am not going to starch his white dress shirt just wash it soft with downy dryer sheets...ya see Mikey loves that smell.
    I don't know what to do now.
    The Medical examiner on albany street in Boston won't let me see him.
    They took him from the scene.
    I was on the cell phone with him when he crashed.
    I could hear them all. All the people that stoped when he missed his exit on route 24 South. Taunton, Ma. yesterday 4:30pm. I will not state what I heard various respondants said. Too painful for anyone but mommy to keep secret from his daddy and you all.
    please tell me some songs please please

    "I will not die an unlived life. I will not live in fear of falling or catching fire. I choose to inhabit my days, to allow my living to open me, to make me less afraid, more accessible, to loosen my heart until it becomes a wing, a torch, a promise. I choose to risk my significance; to live so that which comes to me as seed goes to the next as blossom and that which comes to me as blossom, goes on as fruit."

    This is such sad news. I have 2 sons close to his age. I don't know how I would cope if I lost one of them. My boys like rap and I hate it, but it is for him. isn't it? Do what you think he would like. Maybe ask his friends for music suggestions. I know I would not know any of my sons choice of music.So sorry for your loss.

    You say he liked rap? That's not my music but there is a Tupac/Elton John collaboration called Ghetto Gospel that moves me to tears. It is beautiful. Here's the video:

    FWIW, I just asked my son Jake for a rap song for a funeral for a kid his age. He said immediately "Ghetto Gospel".

    God I'm crying so hard...

    Uhh,
    Hit them with a lil' ghetto gospel

    [Chorus - Elton John:]
    Those who wish to follow me (My ghetto gospel)
    I welcome with my hands
    And the red sun sinks at last into the hills of gold
    And peace to this young warrior without the sound of guns

    If I could recelect before my hood dayz
    I'd sit and reminisce, nigga and bliss on the good dayz
    i stop and stare at the younger, my heart goes to'em
    They tested, it was stressed that they under
    In our days, things changed
    Everyone's ashamed to the youth cuz the truth looks strange
    And for me it's reversed, we left them a world that's cursed, and it hurts
    cause any day they'll push the button
    and yall condemned like Malcolm x and Bobby Hunton, died for nothin
    Don't them let me get teary, the world looks dreary
    but when you wipe your eyes, see it clearly
    there's no need for you to fear me
    if you take the time to hear me, maybe you can learn to cheer me
    it aint about black or white, cuz we're human
    I hope we see the light before its ruined
    my ghetto gospel

    [Chorus - Elton John]

    [2Pac]
    Tell me do you see that old lady aint it sad
    Living out a bag, but she's glad for the little things she has
    And over there there's a lady, crack got her crazy
    Guess she's given birth to a baby
    I don't trip and let it fade me, from outta the frying pan
    We jump into another form of slavery
    Even now I keep discouraged
    Wonder if they take it all back while I still keep the courage
    I refuse to be a role model
    I set goals, take control, drink out my own bottle
    I make mistakes, I learn from everyone
    And when its said and done
    I bet this Brotha be a better one
    If I'm upset, you don't stress
    Never forget, that God hasn't finished with me yet
    I feel his hand on my brain
    When I write rhymes, I go blind, and let the lord do his thang
    But am I less holy
    Cuz I choose to puff a blunt and drink a beer with my homies
    Before we find world peace
    We gotta find peace in that war on the streets
    My ghetto gospel

    [Chorus - Elton John]

    [2Pac]
    Lord can you hear me speak!!
    To pay the price of being hell bound..
