How It All Started
by Meredith Rosbach
My grandaddy was a good man; I loved him dearly. He was like a dad to me. When he passed in 2017, it felt like the wind was knocked out of me. I knew my family members felt the same. I wanted to do something tangible to support them during that difficult time, so I offered to perform the music at his funeral service. My family allowed me that honor, and I am so grateful they did. I sang alongside my sister, and I also played the piano throughout the service. As I played a hymn on the piano when the family walked into the chapel to be seated, I felt a sense of belonging. It was clear to me that I was exactly where I was meant to be in that moment — sitting at the piano, providing peaceful music during our family’s bereavement. After the service, several people told me how much it meant to them that I sang and played the piano. A mutual blessing was felt by my family, friends, and me.
It was clear to me that I was exactly where I was meant to be in that moment.
Within 7 months of my grandfather’s passing, 4 more people in my family died. At each service, I was asked to perform the music. I gladly agreed to help. This time, even strangers that attended the funeral came up to me and shared how my music positively impacted them. I was encouraged by everyone’s kind words. It was then that I began to realize how much of a necessity it was to my healing, and everyone’s healing, to have music during a funeral service. I discovered that music is a pathway for each of us to find a sense of peace, comfort, and compassion for one another.

Over the following months, I prayerfully decided to create Peace of Mind Musical Services. My years of experience in musical performance and leading worship will serve as a guide for me as I work to serve you. My priority is to provide you with the same level of sincerity, compassion, and high quality music as I would my family. I look forward to meeting you and understanding how I can serve you.
