Boyd K. Packer, the Twelve's acting-president, tells a BYU devotional assembly that bishops should exercise strict control over LDS funerals because families are conducting funerals where "we hear about the deceased instead of the Atonement." The Deseret News notes that he speaks about "unwritten laws" of church conduct, but does not quote or paraphrase Apostle Packer's statements against the content of LDS funerals by grieving families.
