interesting choice of words from wiki
January 23, 2010, 04:42:34 PM
Now i know wikipedia is no where near the most reliable source in the world, but take a look at this sentence describing Jermaine as a pallbearer

 He acted as a pallbearer, and performed the song Smile by Charlie Chaplin, which was believed to be his brother's favorite song, in tribute.[15] Jermaine recalls that his daughter took the death of Michael very badly.

I would think "served"or "was" would be better choices imo

They always use the 'acted' when mentioning who were the pallbearers. you will find it in any obituary. Mind you im only going by UK obits

Michael to me your not an icon nor a superstar .. your just a boy that this girl fell in love with a very long time ago.

I have heard (in actual funerals) the term "act" used as the verb when describing a pallbearer. although of course in this situtation we have reason to be curious. ;)
