A page from the book:
"The coffin is sometimes brought in as part of a processional. The Officiant and the choir (if any) lead the funeral procession and are followed by the pallbearers, two by two. The family follows next, and sometimes, close friends will complete the procession. The family and pallbearers occupy the front rows, with friends on either side." Pg. 11
Although there are many funeral books available, this book is fully expected to be the next best seller, and most referenced "how to" book for ministers.
