White hearses slowly drove into a small cemetery carrying a married couple who were among the 26 killed in last weekend’s mass shooting inside a Texas church.

Dozens of vehicles followed in a procession Saturday evening after the funeral for Therese and Richard Rodriguez.
The procession didn’t go by First Baptist Church, the site of the Sunday shooting.

Instead, mourners drove around the tiny community of Sutherland Springs before arriving at the cemetery on the edge of town.

Other vehicles were parked around the cemetery along a rural road. First responders and sheriff’s SUVs were parked at the three entrances to shield mourners and help direct traffic.

Relatives say Therese and Richard Rodriguez had been married for about a decade and had recently retired.
On Sunday Devin Patrick Kelley entered First Baptist Church with an AR-15 in hand and opened fire on the parishioners, killing 26 and seriously injuring dozens more.
