Pallbearers often are chosen from among the deceased's close friends and business associates. During a funeral, they are responsible for carrying the casket to the grave. Honorary pallbearers accompany the casket and typically precede the casket out of the hall after the funeral. Pallbearers act as supports in a trying time, and sending them thank-you notes after a funeral is a thoughtful gesture.
