Mourner Offers Thanks to People Respecting Funeral Cars

funeral carsWe have written about the lack of respect that drivers have toward processions of funeral cars in recent years. Thankfully, however, I think more people show respect toward processions compared to the number of drivers who disrespect them. This editorial may be an indication of just that.

In the piece, the writer thanks the people who showed respect during her mother’s procession on July 23 as she followed the hearse to the burial place in El Paso, Texas. The procession of funeral cars traveled down Clinton to Emerson to Linden to Northtown Road. The cars then got onto the freeway.

The writer noticed many people slowed down out of respect while others completely pulled over until the funeral cars passed by. She wanted to take time to thank the people who did that and even said her mother would have been touched by the display.

On the other hand, the writer wanted to give a big “shame on you” to those who were “too busy to stop and spare a moment of their time.” She went on to say, “I can only hope and pray you will never be in my shoes, burying your mother.”

It only takes a minute to pull over for a procession of funeral cars. And you will never know how much it means to the mourners.
