An Innovative and needed service being offered by our member, Lynne Morra of Durants Party Rentals:
Given the current conditions on gatherings, we have been largely providing tents and sanitation services as specific solutions in response to the pandemic, including drive-thru testing sites, space to allow for social distancing and the like. Funerals have not been able to take place during this time which has been difficult for so many.
The attached example allows for drive-thru viewings where the family can remain socially distant (note the chairs set up to the back and side of the tent). Friends and family can then drive-thru to pay their respects to the deceased and offer their support and sympathies to the family from the safety of their vehicles. As is customary, easels can be set up where photos can be displayed and of course, there is plenty of room for flowers.
As cars exit the tent they can be directed to line up in the parking lot where the funeral service can take place. A raised stage/platform installed in front of the tent (or where ever it works best) allows the minister or celebrant to perform the service and eulogies can be given. A low wattage FM transmitter can be used to broadcast the service so attendees can use their car radios to listen to the service. Since everyone is already in their cars a procession to the cemetery for internment can follow.
Please feel free to contact me anytime, with any questions, requests and/or if we may be of any assistance.
