In a modern age, even grieving is changing. I like the idea of being able to attend services that I might not have otherwise been able to make. Just as attending a church service is an issue at times, the ability for loved ones many miles away to attend that 2nd Cousins memorial service is unique. Will it be able to allow us to actually grieve? Will we be able to connect as well with those in attendance who need our support? Or will it deaden us, much like the many selfies and other visual additions on the Internet?

With friends and relatives dispersed, a growing number of funeral homes will stream services, and demand is increasing.
