Title: Homeless Man's Funeral
Post by: Nakia on March 24, 2012, 03:29:56 am
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 eventually 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 or friends. I played like I have 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...It's a man thing...
