Online funeral

After I went to a funeral last month, it occurred to me that it would be a great service if funerals could be viewed online.

Evidently there are funeral directors in Ireland that think it's a good idea, too! http://http://www.sclarkeandson.co.uk/

They have been offering this sevice for a couple of years. Family members around the world have the opportunity to view streaming audio and video of a loved one's funeral. Special software and a password are required, so access is limited.

I think this is a wonderful idea because it could allow more loved ones and family members to have the funeral service available as part of their grieving process. (Not to mention the convenience of having different venues in case there are those who would not want to be in the same room.)
