Localnews24 reports that Memphis funeral home R. Bernard Funeral Services is offering drive thru viewings. The family owned funeral firm opened in January and has held four drive-thru viewings. The funeral home also offers live stream viewing so that out of town family members can participate. You can watch the video below
Funeral Director Daily’s take: This is not the first time that this has been offered. The offering seemed to be short-lived at other mortuaries when offered. The absence of human contact, at the drive-thru, with the grieving relatives during the visitation is one reason we believe that this idea will not catch on universally.
