My Condolences

Not OC

As a guitarist, I play many gigs. Recently I was asked
by a funeral director to play at a graveside service for a
homeless man. He had no family er friends, so the
service was to be at a pauper' s cemetery in the back
country. As I was not familiar with the backwoods, I got
lost.
I finally arrived an hour late and saw the funeral guy
had evidently gone and the hearse was nowhere in sight.
There were only the diggers and crew left and they were
eating lunch.
I felt badly and apologized to the men for being late. I
went to the side of the grave and looked down and the
vault lid was already in place. I didn' t know what else to
do, so I started to play.
The workers put down their lunches and began to
gather around. I played out my heart and soul for this
man with no family and friends. I played like I' never
played before for this homeless man.
And as I played 'Amazing Grace,' the workers began
to weep. They wept, I wept, we all wept together. When I
finished I packed up my guitar and started for my car.
Though my head hung low, my heart was full.
As I opened the door to my car, I heard one of the
workers say, "I never seen nothin' like that before and
I' been putting in septic tanks for twenty years."
Apparently, I' m still lest...

I remember this story, but with a bagpipe not a guitar. Still funny though.

Just one question, how could you mess that up? Who the hell gets buried in a cement block? Or is that like a default thing you get if you can't afford a good coffin?

My uncle is a funeral director, and he once fell into a grave while the deceased's family was watching.
