Readers respond to an Associated Press report about Clarksville, Tenn., limiting the number of cars in a funeral procession to six.
A person shouldn't be stopped from being in a procession or paying their respects for any reason.

I think there should be a limit, but six is too few. Sometimes when I drive near one it's hard to tell when it ends.
-- Dan Eveland
While no one likes to get stuck behind a funeral procession, I think it's appalling to set a limit to the amount of cars allowed. It's disrespectful and ignorant.
-- Denise Hopkins
We'll just have to figure out how to get more people in six vehicles.
- Daniel Morgan
Am I the only one that likes this idea? It's not like they're saying you can't go to the funeral, just for safety reasons limiting the cars in a funeral procession.
- Shaun Hammel
No government should try to limit the amount of respect that family and friends want to show.
- Keith Ballew
I really hope they don't do that. It's where we say goodbye and have a closure. Get together and mourn, talk about the life of that person, it's a way of healing.
- Robin Bales
Absolutely not. The dead deserve to have all of their loved ones there at their funeral. No limit should ever be set.
