TanyaFree.com/Urban Views Weekly Poll
If we don’t have to get out of the car, chances are we won’t. We enjoy the conveniences of drive-thru banks and fast food restaurants. Well, now there is a funeral home in Michigan offering drive- thru viewing. When a car pulls up, the curtain automatically opens with music playing as well. The mourner has three minutes to view the body. There is even a guest book that mourners can sign.
What’s Your Take? How do you feel about drive through funeral homes?
