In California like most states the population is becoming more and more time strapped and more tech savvy as a result. These time restraints and technological advances have led to internet based trends increasing in the realm of funeral services. Like almost all businesses in the current age funeral homes are increasing their online presence with websites and online contact forms. Although some might argue that the funeral homes website is taking the personal relations out of the funeral service, others will disagree. Funeral home websites allow for family members and other loved ones to communicate their grief from a distance where in the past there would be no way to send your condolences to California from Russia, or from China, or any other faraway place. The websites and distance grieving services provided by funeral homes today help everyone to feel included in the funeral, as well as helping the family to put into perspective the far reaching impact that the loss of their loved one has created.
Although the website will never take away the hands on in person healing that happens when you walk in to a funeral home and shake the hands of the surviving loved ones, it can help to heal those who otherwise would never be able to attend the funeral in person.
