Scene in Edmonds: Playing Taps at Veterans Plaza

  1. Dear Deb,
    Thank you so much for playing taps where you were standing.
    You put so much feeling into your playing, I could feel the mournful sadness in your playing that touched me deeply.
    I hope that you will always do this at the same spot every year no matter where the virus is or hopefully has left us.
    I am still touched by your playing.
    Again, many thanks to you.

  2. Thank you Deb. I usually attend the ceremony at the cemetery even though I no longer live there. I appreciate your doing this gig and hope you don’t mind that I shared it on my FB page to honor our Vets. I will miss not having my little poppy but I still have it from last year and see it everyday. It causes thoughtful reflections on all who served including those who paid the ultimate sacrifice! It has not gone unnoticed.
