      The legacy left by the bagpipe is second to none. They were there in pouring rain, sweltering heat, snow and cold. At every funeral there was always a piper, every one., they never missed a single one. In my 33yrs. on the job we went to so many funerals, I got to hate the sound of the pipes, but they left this legacy of the job and the love we shared for each other. When I hear the sound it brings back so many memories of the brothers, I miss them, I loved them, and i will never forget them. At a job I couldn't see them but I knew they were there, some are gone but like at a job I know they are still next to me . Lt. Bill Bessman-Retired-Rescue One
