Honoring the life of a loved one who has passed away can be a difficult time for your family. And if you’re all scattered across the country, coming together for funeral services can prove to be a bit of a challenge. If you haven’t considered funeral live streaming, here are a few reasons to ask your funeral director about this service.
Connects a Community
When a loved one passes away, they’re often leaving an entire community of families and friends behind. In the event that cherished friends and family members can’t attend the physical service, funeral live streaming is a way for them to still feel like they’re part of the community gathering to honor the life of someone they’ve lost. Live streamed funeral services means that everyone who wants to celebrate the life of a loved one is able to do so without the barrier of physical distance getting in the way. This is especially meaningful if you have loved ones who are stationed overseas and have no way of making it home in time for funeral services. It might not be the same as being there in person, but it’s a meaningful alternative to being unable to attend a memorial at all.
Creates a Lasting Memorial
If multiple people are speaking or reciting literature at a loved one’s funeral, family members may want to remember their words. When you’re live streaming a funeral, the option may exist to save a recording of the memorial services. Not only does this mean loved ones who can’t attend at all have access to the materials given to family and friends at the funeral service, but it also means that the deceased’s closest family members have a lasting memorial to remember them by once the funeral services have ended.
Funeral live streaming may be a relatively new technology and service for grieving families, but it’s one that can make all the difference. When every family member and cherished friend is able to honor the life of someone they’ve lost, the experience becomes that much more meaningful. Now more than ever, technology is allowing people to come together to celebrate and honor their loved ones.
