Amazing!?????? So grateful that Darrell was available to partake in the services for my dad (both parents).He is very knowledgeable, attentive, professional, excellent communicator . The day of the services when he arrived he greeted me with a big hug! Which was awesome! It was comforting. He is very punctual & gave guidance to our friend who was giving the services on that day. From the military honors, taps, to the readings, amazing grace & final goodbyesI All of Our guest were moved by the bagpipes saying wow! He was incredible. I know my parents were watching over us and were smiling through the sunshine on that beautiful day!

Darrell was superb! He was very professional and tailored his bagpipe playing to our specific requests for the service. It was the perfect way to conduct our committal service, and many attendees commented on how special Darrell was. Highly recommended!
