Forever in my mind is Jock slowly walking next to my mum's casket playing Amazing Grace on the pipes. There wasn't a dry eye in the house. What an honor to her heritage by another fellow kinsman. Mum
Ioved her Scots roots as did Jock. Scotland forever! I can never again hear Amazing Grace without thinking of Jock.
Condolences to Joan and the family.

Jock was larger than life both as a man and in his talent. He represented his homeland proudly and those of us with heritage grew closer to our ancestry thanks to Jock. For auld Lang syne dear friend.

Jock performed at my wedding, along with Colin, and he played the pipes at many several of our family affairs. My parents, Bob and Phyllis Norwood were very fond of Jock, he performed at both of their funerals. Very sorry for your loss.
