I imagine there are many of us who have played taps for funerals, memorial days, etc. Most of these are freebies and some are easier than others. It's hard to play when you are hearing a widow sob. Which taps is most memorable for you? I think mine was this last Memorial Day Sunday. I was at a different church than my home chiurch, because they had asked me to play with a praise band and also to perform Taps at the end of congregational prayer. In an effort to get the best effect, I went into a room which was adjacent to the choir area and faced into and across the choir area perpendicular to the congregation. Little did I realize that I was backlit and throwing a shadow of my trumpet and the hand holding it across the Cross behind the stage. I had a Veteran come up to me afterwards with tears in his eyes thanking me and telling me how moved he was at the presentation. He was quite surprised to hear that I did not realize the visual he saw and found so touching. Sometimes we get it right by accident.
