It was carried out of the Petersen house with hands underneath the bottom of the box. Kennedy was placed in a bronze coffin, which wouldn’t fit through the Eastern Airlines aircraft door; the pallbearer’s handles were forcibly removed to board the plane (Lyndon Johnson boarded Air Force One as the newly sworn President).

There is also a a lot of people that believe this is Evidence of Reincarnation Through Coincidence and Synchronicity check out /www.near-death.com/
Dr. John K. Lattimer (1914–2007) was an expert on the Lincoln assassination as well as the Kennedy family’s autopsy expert. This is what he had to say about the Lincoln and Kennedy assassinations in his book Kennedy and Lincoln: Medical and Ballistic Comparisons of Their Assassinations: “The assassination of President John F. Kennedy has turned out to be almost a replay of the assassinations of President Abraham Lincoln, point by point. The similarities, coincidences, and associations are so striking as to be worthy of assembling in the epilogue that follows.” Dr. Lattimer devoted the entire epilogue of his book (pages 335-365) to these similarities, coincidences, and associations. As you will see in these articles, the evidence is overwhelming.
At www.near-death.com they go into a little bit more detail on this and have done a lot of research on this subject. Very interesting stuff.
Some may believe that these events have a supernatural component behind them, and some may believe it is divine intervention and others may just see them as mere coincidence, but the big question is what do you believe?
