The virtual burial

Businessweek has an interesting article about a US company called Basic Funerals that has arranged over 1000 funerals via its Web site.

The founder explained that Boomer’s parents are nearing the end of their lives, while their tech-savvy children are comfortable buying goods and services over the Web.

Hard to argue with that logic. I buy my books online why not the box for poor old Auntie Vi?

Having had a quick look at the site I didn’t realize that there are so many options when arranging a funeral. Dick Stroud
