The family opted for "post mortem" or an autopsy since they knew it was a murder. The morning of the autopsy we went to that part of the hospital to assisst the family with some of the arrangements, but they had not yet arrived. The only person there was the police detective and his assistant. The doctors wanted/expected family to view the autopsy process, along with the detective. They invited Pam to participate, which she did with Teddy's mother.
After the service the casket is lowered into the ground.
At the conclusion, the flowers that were placed on the casket during the funeral service are gathered up and placed on top of the grave site.
