I have misgivings.
It's a statement by the president of the Society of Allied and Independent Funeral Directors, Paul Allcock. When asked about the rise in people requesting the option of live streaming at funerals he replied,
“It’s wonderful for those relatives who live abroad, but there’s also a danger of pandering to people’s laziness and not attending personally and sharing your condolences, which is such an important part of the grieving process."
In this post, I challenge this opinion because I think it is ignoring the seismic change digital disruption is bringing on the funeral industry.
