Don is a consummate professional. He arrived at the service quite early & began a mini bagpipe concert for our family as we awaited the beginning of the service, honoring my precious father-in-law. Don was handsomely attired in his family's tartan kilt. It was quite warm out but Don remained undaunted by the weather. After the service Don played Amazing Grace & Scotland the Brave while moving away from the group. The fading pipe was quite dramatic. We are so grateful he shared his extraordinary talent with us. Don has played at other family events in the past and he always does a superb job. Thanks, Don!
