A Michigan Funeral Home Offers Drive-Thru Viewings

Oct 20, 2014 -- 5:15pm

So far, only a couple of families have taken advantage of a new service available at a Saginaw, Michigan funeral home: Drive-thru viewings. We're not kidding. Paradise Funeral Chapel recently started offering the option, in which the dearly departed's casket is actually placed behind a drive-up window, allowing mourners to pay their last respects while never leaving their car. It's not quite as uncaring as it sounds. It was designed, at least in part, to cater to those with physical limitations. The funeral home's president, Ivan Phillips, says he expects more customers to opt for the drive-thru once they learn it's not a gimmick and is safe to use. Curtains covering the window open when sensors underneath the window recognize the presence of a car. Mourners then get three minutes to view the body as music plays. (ParadiseFuneralChapel.com)

New Company Allows You to Leave Your Tattoos to Your Loved Ones After You Die

An entrepreneur in Holland named Peter Van der Helm last year established Walls and Skin, which is a foundation that removes deceased customers' tattoos and preserves them for all eternity so you can give them as gifts or leave them to your loved ones.

First, the body art is sliced off deceased person’s body, then frozen or stored in formaldehyde for its journey to Europe. There, pathologists transform the skin strip into what's basically a piece of plastic by taking out the water and fat and injecting it with a liquid polymer like silicone.
