REALLY quiet, sad songs about death?

I know it's depressing but I need some sad songs for a funeral. Please no rock, rap or anything sounding harsh or loud if you know what I mean. Songs like Sarah McLachlan's "Angel" , "I will remember you" , "Answer". etc... Quiet songs with a slow beat that don't pick up. I guess you could say that I'm looking for a lullaby... Something that would lull one to sleep. No love songs... And I'm not really looking for specific deaths of people like a death of a father, mother etc. I want to avoid "he's" because the person being remembered is a young girl. I hope this isn't too confusing and I really appreciate your song suggestions. Thank you :)

    Try death cab for cutie. They have amazing music. The song "What Sarah Said" is really awesome, but I think it has a minor swear word in the beginning.
