Of the people posting here before you, several said "touching" and one said "condolences." I don't think "touching" refers primarily to the RR action and didn't do so in the case of my post. I don't think anyone is missing the human element here - mighty hard to do so given that the illustrating photo is of a coffin. You've overreacted and inaccurately reacted, in my view.
