Funeral Etiquette

As someone who often drives a minister to the graveside, I have witnessed the behaviour described in this article below – people unable to wait a few seconds or minutes and must get ahead. But then a lot of folk in the funeral procession don’t really understand the etiquette either. In these days of cars with lights on day and night, we’ve taken to using our hazard lights to alert others to the reason for the steady pace. We are all bound together by many things but grief is a universal given – could we not show a little respect, if not for the one who has lost their life, but for those who have lost the one they love. Could we not extend this little courtesy on what may be the worst day of someone’s life? Your thoughts?
