Lisa Dozier is the owner and director of Lisa S. Dozier Funeral Service in Brooklyn and has been a resource for grieving families for more than two decades.
Her job became even more challenging with the new national guidelines and city mandates associated with the COVID-19 virus. Under the new mandates, funerals are limited to no more than 10 people, not allowing families to have a traditional service. However, Dozier is bridging the gap during this difficult time, offering livestream services at the funeral home and churches as well. This alternative allows many extended family and friends to attend remotely and memorialize their loved ones the right way.
Dozier says people are happy with the new option.
“The alternative for a livestreamed funeral allows extended family members to join the service and their families remotely,” she said. “People have been very receptive. It’s not like I have created this law. It’s all over the news and has been a law made by the government because people are seeing everything themselves on the news every day. They’re understanding and receptive. By all means, please know they are happy about the alternative but not happy they have to do it under these circumstances.”
