Thanks for the words and the links. I listened to all three and I'm sure its the one by Dotty Peoples. I had been asked to secure someone to sing at my aunts funeral a few years a go and a friend referred an older woman with a powerful voice. It was such short notice that we didn't have time to request specific songs and didn't know what to expect. She read the obituary when she arrived. When I asked her what she was going to sing, she said it seems to her that a woman of nearly 100 and such a lively character wouldn't want people to cry at this time so I shouldn't worry, she knew exactly what to sing. My neices sang her favorite, His Eye is on the Sparrow early in the program. She sang Nearer My God and then sent her off with this song which most older people can relate to. I had not heard it in years and could not find the words anywhere.
