Area funeral home adds webcasting to services

Thursday, August 7, 2008

Representatives of Moore Funeral Home recently announced that webcasting is now available to their client families.

"This cutting-edge technology is an innovative way for us to bring the funeral services to members of the family and the wider circle of friends who are unable to attend in person," Rob Moore, owner of Moore Funeral Home, said. "Families and friends are scattered -- often around the world -- and it's at times of grief and loss that their absence is keenly felt by those left behind. It is our goal to help everyone come together to celebrate the life of their loved one and find comfort.

"Many people haven't heard about webcasting," Moore continued. "A webcast is simply a broadcast of the service, distributed over the Internet using streaming technology. It can be viewed live or recorded and viewed when friends and family wish to -- sometimes over and over again. The broadcast is password protected, so the service is as private as it originally was."

Moore said the technology is portable as well.

"This means that we can take it anywhere. Broadcasting services and events held in parks, on golf courses, in churches, wherever the client family wishes the services to be held," Moore said. "This is another way to build flexibility into every celebration. No two lives are alike, and no two funeral services should be. Webcasting allows for the utmost in personalization."

Refrain from obscenity in your comments, and to keep discussions civil, don't say anything in a way your grandmother would be ashamed to read.

It doesn't surprise me that Moore Funeral Home is the first to adopt this cutting edge technology. Rob and Vanita are professionals in every way and perform wonderful services in our community. I will look forward to using their webcasting.
