Saw it on Fox News.

Were the Captain’s children that placed flowers on the coffin?

Yes.

From the article....Speicher's widow and each of the couple's grown children laid flowers on the casket before it was carried to a hearse for a short ride to All Saints Chapel on the base.

Made me cry....

I believe that was Speicher’s two grown children who first placed the flowers, they were three and one years old when he went missing. His wife re-married after 18 months to his best friend, Buddy Harris, also a Navy Pilot. They also had two children. If you look at the picture, it was his best friend, his wife, and the four children.
