    I was contacted by Allison Funeral Home to play at the graveside for one of the pilots who went down in Galveston. The service was held on Wednesday January 11, 2017 at 1:00pm. The locaton for the memorial service was at North Main Baptist Church in Hardin followed by a graveside service at Guedry Cemetery.

    I had to play Amazing Grace at the graveside. Because they did not know how long the service was going to take, I had to get out there early to be ready when they arrived.

        Emken-Linton Funeral Home in Texas City held a memorial service to remember the lives of those who were lost in the 9/11 attacks on our country. Houston Bagpiper was called to play "Amazing Grace" during the service. After a few words spoken from the mayor I walked in playing the tune. The Texas City honor guard concluded the service with a 21 shotgun salute and taps. The funeral home had a BB-Q lunch for the areas first responders to honor them for their service. What a tribute!

          I received a call from a man named Robert who wanted me to play for his wedding. He shared with me how much he appreciated me playing for his wife's funeral earlier last year and that he was getting remarried on the Carinval Triumph out of the Galveston cruise terminal. We discussed the details of what and when he wanted me to play for the wedding. Robert said I had to be at the terminal by 9:00am so that I can get checked in. All the people attending the wedding had to enter the ship at the same time. When I arrived I received a badge that I had to keep with me the entire time I was on the ship.
