The challenge of learning any new funeral software can sometimes make even the most tech savvy individuals wary; however, funeral webcasting
is quick to set up, easy to learn and the results are worth the effort. For death care professionals this funeral technology is connecting families in ways once never thought possible. It's not everyday that a technology can be so helpful and mean so much to so many people as is the case with funeral webcasting. Here's one woman's story:
I had to tell my cousin, "I can't make it to the funeral." Just hearing the words out loud brought a new wave of grief over me. When Kevin called last night and told me there had been an accident and that Linda didn't make it, from that moment I started panicking. My mind raced. How am I going to get out to Arizona? Who would watch the kids? Should I bring the kids? Was my suit at the cleaners or did I pick that up/? What about the dog? I wonder if Steve next door could watch him. Oh, no. My boss is on vacation and I agreed to finish that new client proposal by Thursday. All those thoughts mixed together with flashes of Linda and I climbing trees, riding bikes and running around the neighborhood as a kid flashed through my mind. She was gone. Grief, stress, panic and worry filled my head. I went to bed with a pain in my heart and the weight of the world on my shoulders.
The next morning following that fateful call, I realized I just couldn't do it. I can't make the funeral. My youngest woke up with a fever of 103. And, how was I going to swing more than $1500 for airfare, a car rental, and a hotel? Never mind work, that was a whole other issue. But, Linda is gone. How could I not be there? The anxiety of it all was mind numbing.
I called Kevin and told him I was up-in-arms about the whole thing. That's when he surprised me and said, "Don't worry. You can still be here with us." I begged off what I thought was an offer to fly me out there. How could he afford to fly me in and put me up? It was too much for him to offer. "No, it's not that. Our funeral home has webcasting so you can watch the service from home," he said. At first I didn't understand what funeral webcasting was, but as he explained I soon realized that this was the most perfect solution that came at one of the most difficult times in my life. I could still be there for Linda and see everyone else. If only everything was as easy as funeral webcasting.
Funeral webcasting affords the bereaved a great comfort.
Webcasting gives family and friends those final moments to say good-bye and to be with loved ones during this difficult time, even if it is just virtually. Family members who can't travel can see the funeral service just like they were there by viewing a live funeral webcast or via a delayed stream. Funeral webcasting allows those family members the opportunity to be a part of the service and get the closure they need.
