In Vermont the trends in funeral services are much the same as those in the other United States. You will find that there is an increase in the amount of technology used in the funeral service and in the planning of the funeral. Rather than past generations who would take days to notify their family and friends of the loss of a friend today people are harnessing the power of the internet and reaching more people faster than ever before. This rate of contact and range of people contacted are causing an increase in the number of attendees in some funerals.
With more technology in place in funeral homes people are finding new and creative ways to attend and speak at funerals. While these days we tend to have friends and family who we speak to daily who live thousands of miles away, or in some cases we have best friends who we have never met in person, technology is allowing these far away friends and family to also contribute to funerals. When selecting your Vermont local funeral home you might want to talk to the funeral director about the level of technological support they can offer to the funeral you are planning. Do you need to video tape it, or do you want to allow people to speak through an audio link online? Your funeral director should be able to help you determine the capabilities of the funeral home you are considering doing business with.
