As a bagpiper, I was asked by a funeral director to
play at a graveside service for a homeless man who had no
family or friends. The funeral was to be held at a cemetery
in the remote countryside and this man would be the first to
be laid to rest there.

As I was not familiar with the backwoods area, I
became lost and being a typical man, did not stop for
directions. I finally arrived an hour late. I saw the
backhoe and the crew who were eating lunch but the hearse
was nowhere in sight.

I apologized to the workers for my tardiness and
stepped to the side of the open grave where I saw the vault
lid already in place.

I assured the workers I would not hold them up for
long but this was the proper thing to do. The workers
gathered around, still eating their lunch. I played out my
heart and soul.

As I played the workers be gan to weep. I played
and I played like I’d never played before, from Going
Home and The Lord is My Shepherd to Flowers of the Forest. I
closed the lengthy session with Amazing Grace and walked to
my car.

As I was opening the door and taking off my coat, I
overheard one of the workers saying to another, “Sweet
Jeezuz, Mary’n Joseph, I never seen nothin’ like
that before and I’ve been putting in septic tanks for
twenty years.”
