For Funerals Too Far, Mourners Gather on the Web


In an age of commemorating birthdays, weddings and anniversaries on Facebook and Twitter, it was perhaps inevitable that live Web-streaming funerals for friends and loved ones would be next.

I guess it was inevitable that funerals would be next in the tech revolution. With the rising cost of travel and associated expenses along with people who have difficulty in traveling because of age or disabilities, this seems like the next step.

I would think families that have small children or a business they can not get away from would see this as a benefit.
