Yeah, I always feel applause at a funeral is ewww, but it has happened at virtually every funeral I've been at in recent years; the soft patter of palms is kind of a supportive gesture to the grieving.
So sad to see his poor wife, clearly in the kind of stark shock that leaves you in utter denial, and his white-haired old father, stunned with grief.
