You will want to add your function above the sections area in the functions.php file.
There is a line of code that reads
Place your functions above this, although putting them below is not going to cause a problem either.
If you receiving a fatal error it is most likely because your PHP syntax is incorrect. The error message should have given you a clue as to the problem but just make sure to create you function in the same form as the example in the functions.php file.
Give it another shot and if you have another error, place post the error message as well as the PHP code you are using.
