Have you ever heard of a virtual funeral service? In today’s digital age, technology has made it possible for us to connect virtually in ways we never thought possible. However, what happens when technology gets in the way of closure? This is exactly what happened to the family of James, who recently lost his life to COVID-19.
The pandemic has forced many funeral services to go virtual, providing a way for family and friends to pay their respects from a safe distance. While this may seem like a convenient solution, it can reveal unexpected challenges. In James’ case, the virtual stream of his funeral service was still showing even after the service had ended.
James’ family, already grieving the loss of their loved one, was devastated to discover that the live stream of the funeral service was still ongoing. They felt that their privacy and the dignity of the deceased had been compromised. In a heartbreaking moment, a gentleman walked up and stood over the camera, asking, “Who is this?” It was James’ wife, who felt that her husband’s dignity had been stolen in those moments.
This incident has sparked a legal case, with James’ family seeking closure and dignity for their departed loved one. Their attorney, John Phillips, has expressed his concerns about the breach of contract and emotional distress caused by this unfortunate incident. He believes that protocols should have been in place to ensure the proper handling of the virtual stream.
