APX Tunes Used to Minister at Funeral

We're honored anytime we hear that our parodies are played, but the occasion described below particularly touched us:
Your music has touched people in a rather unexpected way.
I am the pastor of a small church in Laughlin NV. My friend Steve was 58 years old when he went to be with the Lord, February 5. He was a relatively new believer (only eight months). Cancer was his enemy.
His wife asked that I play your music at his funeral. She chose "Baa! We're Lambs" and "Old Time Roman Road." Before your music was played, we had a few more traditional songs as well as contemporary songs.
I introduced your music as fun Christian parody, and explained a little about it. It was very well recieved. When "Baa! We're Lambs" started, everyone laughed. Of Steve's family and past friends at the funeral, only his wife was a Christain. Nonetheless, EVERYONE loved your music.
After the funeral, people came up to me to inquire about your albums. Myself and a few of the teens in our church atteneded one of your concerts recently in Scottsdale AZ. Steve really wanted to go, but his cancer just wouldn't let him go then.
One great thing is that he can attend all of your concerts now if he wants to. :) Bless you guys in your ministry outreach.
