What do you think?
Is the 'drive-through' funeral service inappropriate?
I think the drive-through era is over. The only drive-throughs that seem to exist now are bank machines and fast food services. I can't think of anything more disrespectful than not taking a few minutes, a half hour or an hour from the day to pay respects to a person who has died and their family.
A drive-through viewing implies that you haven't got a few minutes in your all-important day to give to the family of someone you died. I think it's disrespectful...
