DETROIT – They lost a teenage son to suicide, then sought compassion from their priest.

Maison Hullibarger, whose family objected to the references to suicide made by their priest at the 18-year-old's funeral on Dec. 8, 2018, is shown in a high school photo.

As the casket was wheeled out, the couple told the priest he was not welcome at their son's burial. »
