The streaming funeral service allows participants to do more than watch the service of a loved one. A minister can be present to give words of encouragement, and it includes a one-hour viewing period where family members can leave comments.
Dozier said as she and her staff try to provide each family with a personalized funeral service, they too face great risk.
“Personally, my staff and I are exposed to individuals who have died due to COVID-19. My business has increased greatly during this pandemic, with 90 percent of our funerals being COVID-19-related deaths. We are at great risk every day, so we have simply been focusing on protecting ourselves daily,” she said. “It has affected my business and the entire funeral industry tremendously because family members can’t properly grieve and are being robbed of the right to grieve.”
Dozier said she has one hope when the pandemic finally ends.
“I hope we all continue to live a clean and healthy lifestyle. I hope the world begins to view life differently and not take things for granted,” she added. “My staff and I share the same passion and practice, the same universal preparation, which is knowing God got us.”
