The son is first to place…

Hello all! I wonder what the Talmud and other sources of the sages say about closing the eyes of a father if a son is not present, “…the son is first to place his hand upon the eyes and close them, as is written: Joseph will lay his hand on your eyes.”

I assume whoever happens to be present would do the honor? I’m just curious if anyone knows whether the sages speak of this. Thank you.
