    • Rigsby begins to sing Amazing Grace during the toast to Bosco. Amazing Grace was written by John Newton in 1779. Newton's early life was rather sordid as a sailor and captain of slave-trading vessels. It was during a fierce storm at sea on March 10, 1748 that Newton "cried to the Lord" for help. He then began a rather hypocritical journey through Christianity. Newton eventually publicly admitted he was wrong and became a strong force to have slavery abolished in the British Empire.
      Traditionally, Amazing Grace is played on the bagpipes at funerals for military and law enforcement personnel.
