The September 2000 issue of Carolina Country magazine reported the story of an unusual funeral home in Spartanburg, South Carolina. The have installed a drive-through viewing window. People can view the body of the deceased without ever getting our of their cars. Of course that misses the point of funeral home visitation. It is not just to view the body of the deceased. It is to bring comfort and a sense of solidarity to the grieving family. But it makes the point that we are in much too much of a hurry. We need to slow down, for our own sake and for the sake of our friends.
