I had to write about an experience about being an usher about seven years ago. This was not a nice experience at all.

I have been a Pallbearer about six times, but never an Usher, whatever the role you asked to do, I feel it should be an honour to do it, and be treated with the upmost respect.

Agree with you. To be asked to be one, pallbearer or an usher is an honour.

Best Answer

Yes. It isn't supposed to be "nice". It is supposed to be a service to another in a time of grief and pain. I have been honored to do so, and I handled it in a manner of respect and compassion for the family.<br />

I've never been an usher at one but I've been a pallbearer many times. And when I was in the Army, I was on the funeral team. I was one of those guys who shot off blanks while they folded the flag.

In the USA the funeral home directors take care of that themselves. They will ask for 6 people, to serve as pallbearers; those are usualy once removed family members. I have volentered at all, except the funerals of my son and parents.

You mean the pall bearer? I am referring to being an usher and then in my case ended being THE pall bearer. Have written a story on this experience.
