The Junior FH in Pensacola,FL, I think, had one. I saw it on a video called "Death- The trip of a lifetime." This video was made in 1992. I don't know if the FH is still around. The owner said it was actually a question on Hollywood Squares. People would say no to the question, but it's true. Anybody else seen the video??

Drive-thru Funeral Home
The Junior Drive-Thru Funeral Home is still there and still appears to be "out of business". At least for the time being. [Tom, 07/20/2003] [RA: September 2005: George C. reports Junior's drive-thru funeral home was sold and converted into a church -- the Holy Trinity Anglican Church, with about 40 members. The former morgue has been converted into the church kitchen. February 7, 2005: Dean Jeffrey writes: "I just got an email from my brother about Willie Junior, the former owner of the drive-thru funeral home in Pensacola. Willie disappeared the day before he was to be sentenced on the corruption charges that ultimately led to the closing of the funeral home. A month later, a decomposed body was found under the house of an ex-limo driver for the funeral home, along with a few beer bottles and an empty pill container. The body turned out to be Willie." Feb. 20, 2005 - Dean updates: "His death was ruled a suicide as a result of drinking antifreeze."]
Drive-Thru Funeral Home Closed The Drive-Thru Funeral Home is closed. Owner Willie Junior was one of four (out of a total of five) Escambia County Commissioners removed from office in 2002 by Gov. Jeb Bush after being arrested and charged with bribery, extortion, racketeering, and money laundering. The funeral home, which had been up for sale, was a casualty of the scandal. Junior has since pleaded no contest to 11 charges and is awaiting sentencing. [Dean Jeffrey, 01/27/2003]
Drive-thru Funeral Home I live in Pensacola, and looked for the drive-thru funeral home. Sure enough, the Junior Funeral Home, located at 609 North Alcaniz Street, offers 'an optional drive thru viewing window'. Their motto: "In your time of need, put your trust in us. We're friends...like family." Although Peeping Toms might cause you to be eternally restless, you'll never have to come up with an excuse to get rid of the in-laws -- they're just passing through.

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?!?!?
It is gone along with Willie....
