Uncle Kay's Funeral

This was my first funeral. It was back in April.

I'd always wanted to pipe at a funeral, but I would have preferred someone I wasn't as close to. I admired my Uncle Kay for many reasons, so it was a special honor to be invited by my Aunt to play at his funeral.

I piped the casket to the hearse from the Chapel; then from the hearse to the graveside; and finally at the end of the graveside service.

Even though I've played Amazing Grace many times, I actually choked up a bit and struggled a bit to get through it.

Here is the program from the funeral.
