Dear MEL Topic Readers,
‘More and more people don’t want a traditional burial’
The Covid-10 pandemic has created millions of unexpected, sudden deaths and funerals. It also has given us the chance to recall that our life is not infinite. As new technologies arise and people become more environmentally conscious, new ways to treat the dead emerged. Some people want their ashes mixed in an artificial reef formation and sunk on the ocean’s floor. Others want their bodies decomposed and spread in a conservation forest. There is also a service that sends ashes into outer space.
Also, funeral services have changed dramatically. Because of the travel and gathering restrictions, only a few people can attend the service in-person. So, just like online meetings, web-casting funeral services have become common. As family members, relatives, and friends live in different places recently, attending funerals online is expected to become more popular even after the pandemic.
