Appropriate behavior at a funeral

Most whispered, for it seemed more appropriate. But nothing was really said as people picked at chips and dip, avoiding confrontation with the sad couple, no longer mother nor father.
How are you? Let us know if we can help in any way. The couple gave stock answers, trying to resist emptying their third, fourth, fifth glass of wine.
But then someone approached, touch their shoulders.
The couple, lifted their eyes from their glasses.
He said, “To have it devastate you in such a way, I have never known this kind of love. And that, I hope, is some comfort.”
