Beautiful

It was always my cousins wish to have bagpipes played at his funeral. His passing came much sooner then we thought. I went on the internet & found Mike Breidenbach. He played an hour during the visitation, before the funeral. It was simply beautiful. The last song he played was Amazing Grace. Everyone was in awe that a bagpiper was there & enjoyed the selections so much. He was very professional. Communication was great. Priced fairly. I would highly recommend Mike to anyone for any occasion. Thank you so very much Mike. I know Ralph was looking down smiling.
