A matter of respect

Digger has some interesting observations about funeral etiquette, in light of the large crowd attending Officer Lee Newbill's funeral Friday. Worth some discussion perhaps:

I attended the funeral for fallen Moscow Police Officer Lee Newbill on Friday. I've now just been able to think of that service without tearing up. From the bagpipes at the beginning to the Battle Hymn at the end, it was a truly masterful service. The part that brought me to tears was his final service call over the radio by the Whitcom 911 dispatcher.
