The Bagpiper

A bagpiper 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.

The bagpiper was not familiar with the backwoods area & he became lost and being a typical man, did not stop for directions. He finally arrived an hour late. He saw the backhoe and the crew who were eating lunch but the hearse was nowhere in sight. He apologized to the workers for his tardiness and stepped to the side of the open grave where he saw the vault lid already in place. He assured the workers he would not hold them up for long but the only proper thing to do would be to play anyway to honor the deceased.

The workers gathered around, still eating their lunch. The bagpiper played out his heart and soul - starting with "Going Home," "The Lord is my Sheperd," "Flowers of the Forest," then finishing with a touching version of "Amazing Grace."

As the bagpiper walked to his car, he heard one of the workers say, "Well, I have never seen nothin' like that in the 20 years I've been puttin' in septic tanks."
