Drive Thru Viewing???

Busy? Lazy...or just plain nosey? Finding time to pay respects to love ones and friends is getting easier courtesy of drive-thru viewing. Paradise Funeral Chapel in Michigan adds the service free of charge with three minutes to view the body on a raised and tilted platform for the casket. A deposit opening for leaving donations, cars or memory items is available with a retractable guest book behind the door. The sick and elderly can now view & pay respect or folks who are scared of funeral homes can stay safe in the comfort of their car. The funeral home is not planning to add food service...
