    A Homeless Man's Funeral



    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 Kentucky 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."



    Apparently I'm still lost....
