–John McDermott

I thought he’d live forever
He seemed so big and strong
But the minutes fly and the years roll by
For a father and his son

And suddenly when it happened
There was so much left unsaid
No second chance to tell him thanks
For everything he’s done

I never will forget him for he made me what I am
Though he may be gone memory lingers on
And I miss him… The Old Man

The Bagpiper

A Chicago police officer for more than 20 years, I took up bagpipes in 2001 and haven’t set them down since.  Maybe you’ve seen me play the pipes in the Batman, The Dark Knight movie?
