      Thanks Tim, it's great to have a documented pictorial legacy that can be used to actually view the past 50 years. SUPER

      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
