Was this person out of line? or should the parent, either father or mother, have made sure the child wasn't wondering around trying to take things during the service? or is ok and considered cute when children do this?
Was person out of line? NO
Should parent have controlled child? YES
Is it cute? NO Wouldn't be cute in any circumstance, whether it was a wedding, funeral or friend's 30th.
I'd be appalled if this happened at a funeral I attended and I probably would have had a word with the parents earlier when the children were climbing over the chairs.
No amount of grief excuses the parents from controlling their children.
