As a bagpiper, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked by a

       Funeral director to play at a graveside service for a homeless
       Man.  He had no family or friends, so the service was to be at a
       Pauper's' cemetery in the back country.



       As I was not familiar with the backwoods,

I got lost and, being a typical man, I didn't stop for directions.



       I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy had evidently
       Gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight.  There were only the
       Diggers and crew left and they were eating lunch.



       I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I went to the
       Side of the grave and looked down and the vault lid was already in
       Place. I didn't know what else to do, so I started to play.



       The workers put down their lunches and began to gather around. I played
       Out my heart and soul for this man with no family and friends.I played like
       I've never played before for this homeless man.



       And as I played 'Amazing Grace,' the workers began to weep. They wept,
       I wept, we all wept together. When I finished I packed up my bagpipes
       And started for my car. Though my head hung low, my heart was full.



       As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the workers say, "I
       Never seen nothin' like that before and I've been putting in septic
       Tanks for twenty years."
