In the Christianity forum, I asked people if they would be against someone saying a Jewish prayer at a Christian funeral. In case you are curious, here is a link to that discussion:

Would it be OK to say a Jewish prayer at a Christian funeral?

Everyone from the service went to the Mausoleum to participate in Kaddish and then we all went back to the house for Shiva.
Mausoleum? Very sad day, indeed.
