Playing taps is important
To the editor:I think we should always have taps at a military funeral.
Narvol Randol Jr. played taps at my husband's funeral. He stood in the rain and got quite wet. He has been a friend since childhood, and we admire him so much. Randy is a very giving person.
Keep playing, Randy.
