  1. I’ve seen photos of the Tabernacle all decked out before, but never would have imagined such decoration for a funeral. (Even the pillars are wrapped in spirals.) Wow.

    Also, it looks like a large framed portrait of President Snow is front and center, directly in front of the organ case. Impressive.

  2. I think they called this a “white funeral,” David. And I hadn’t noticed the pillars before you pointed them out.
