Default we knew

Robert,
We knew this would happen sooner or later. Every business seems to have to have a drive thru. From pharmacies to beer outlets. Something else we knew or at least could have guessed is that California would have the first funeral home with a drive thru.
I am glad some of us can live at a pace that we are not so hurried that we can't take the time to show our respects for those that have passed.
Mike

I'm not certain that this is the first funeral home to offer drive-thru viewing. If myy old memory serves me correctly there was a place up in or around Detroit a few years ago that offered it. I either read it somewhere or saw it on television.

I remember reading about something like this when I was in high school 25 years ago. I don't think it's anything new, just not popular.

This I believe, was the downfall of the Reigle Funeral Home-Sunrise Chapel. It's design made it look like a "Drive-Thru" funeral home which is never was.

standard practice in the old west. the furniture store or barber shop whichever did the deed in town would place the out law in the coffin prop it up for all to walk past and see before the trip to boot hill. them that could not attend the hainging got to see the results. had to do it a little faster in the summer though

Ok, I think it's a little weird too. Personally, I don't really even understand the idea behind an open casket. But what really blows my mind about this whole thing... why the heck are so many people taking pictures of the deceased?!?!?

Default In my opinion

Some traditions are best left alone. If you cant properly pay your respects to the family of the dearly departed, dont come a callin'!
