What about Danny Boy? It’s a traditional Irish song-used at funerals…it’s literally about a son going to war;, and the father realizing that he may not be around when/if son gets back. But today it is used a lot at both funerals and celebrations to pay homage to those who have passed away. It’s really hauntingly beautiful.

Also, I know, at least for the FDNY and NYPD it is used a lot after 9/11 as an “unofficial anthem,”to honor their fallen so it will probably be familiar to many of your guests, and be very appropriate for the walk and lighting.
