Hi Ed Lee,
"Dr. Mark, I've committed to sound TAPS and will have to speak with the Chair of the Memorial Day committee in order to sub Billy in my stead. If such is agreed to, I'm all for it. Again, if he wants to, I'm positive he can do it, and at a Memorial Day ceremony is likely the preferred phasing into his doing so at future funerals. I'll gladly transport him to and from.
You've just taken the first step in creating something that should be in every little town that has a high school or comminuty band.
Ed Lee...You rock!!!
