Tim was so very professional and talented. He played beautifully and everyone commented on his playing. When the service was over he roamed around the cemetery playing and was again just beautiful. As the family procession of cars were leaving he stood near the exit and played for us. I would recommend him highly. I being a Director of Music appreciate his talent and professionalism. Thank you Tim for being a very special part of my mothers funeral.

Tim played at my parents funeral and my Father had requested a bagpiper playing the Ohio State fight song. Tim learned the fight song just for this occasion, he also played Amazing Grace as well as other beautiful music. I highly recommend Tim for any occasion.

Tim was very easy to talk too and to make arrangements for our mothers funersl at Jacksonville National Cemetery. Tim was very responsive to our request and he played while the guests arrived, played Amazing Grace after the service and played as the guests were leaving. Everyone enjoyed the bagpipe music, since as a military spouse, but not a veteran, my mother was not eligible for taps.
