Something not every musician has done...

... played over his own gravesite, but it has been on my bucket list for a while.  Some may think it a bit macabre, but we are prepared. We bought the plot a few years ago, just up the hill from my wife's family, and had the stone out up. I designed the Celtic Cross.  We made a visit to the cemetery on Veterans' Day  and I played a few tunes for the In-laws, then up the hill to my final piece of real estate.

If you want something doing right, do it yourself. I think it's kind of nice to know where you'll be.

Thanks, Jane. We just didn't want to leave our son with the responsibility, and really, none of us gets out of this life alive anyway- why not be prepared?
