    I would think the funeral home would have had suggestions for music, etc. I wonder what the funeral home director thought of the music choices? Are any locals going? Now I REALLY want to know what photos were chosen for the slideshow.

To the left of the guest books is a photo of Zahra, larger than life, impishly grinning at the camera while holding up a snake in her hands.

    Visitors will also get to watch a video montage, photos from Zahra’s life that the family has put together, said Loretta Kuhn, with Drum Funeral Home. The slideshow is played to “Stuck on You,” by Elvis Presley and “Flew up to Heaven” by Alan Jackson."

    I keep wondering if they just don't get it? No one is that backwards - but we know better...

    Is it possible that this is a case of cultural differences? I'm grasping at straws here, obviously -

    Thanks for posting this. Right this moment, I'm glad I don't live in or near Hickory - no chance of going to say; "Fare thee well" - no decision to make. I'm so sorry that someone is turning this into a production of some sort, rather than "good-bye" to a beautiful child.

    Here's a description of which photos they are using (and which they are not).

    Throughout the slideshow, though, there is not a single baby picture or a photo of Zahra in her toddler years.

    Photos in the memorial tribute show Zahra riding on a motorcycle, diving into a pool, dancing, wearing a cowboy hat, playing putt-putt and bending over, peeking through her legs at the camera.

    There are images of her with long hair and two legs, and photos of her with her head wrapped in a scarf, pictures of her shortly after she got her left-leg prosthesis.

    The slideshow ends on a photo of a close up of Zahra facing the camera, playfully sticking her tongue out at the person taking the photo, waving her hands on either side of her face.

    I'm hoping beyond hope that the Elvis song is being used because there are lyrics in the song that, say, maybe grandma used to sing to Zahra as a term of endearment. Like I do with my daughter: I collect songs with her name in them and often sing extracted lyrics from the songs to her, as a sign of endearment. It is not about the song as a whole, but a line or 2 in the song.

    At least that is what I hope is the issue with the Elvis song...

    SO sad.. but Emily has said that Elvis was KB's favorite singer.

    http://thehinkymeter.com/phpbb/viewt...3&p=3950#p3943

    It surprises me NOT.

    I wonder what was Zahra's favorite song was? Or if anyone even cared..

    Anyway, I could think of 20 different Elvis songs that would have been way more appropriate. *sigh*

    Ok, so after painting and pondering this awhile...WTH is wrong with these people? This is past stoopid, naive and backwards. KB's favorite, that's nice. Really nice, but this is not about KB or ADAM. It's about ZAHRA. Do they even care about her or are they just doing this to look good themselves? Never mind I know the answer. There is a special place in hell and a few more seats just got reserved.
