Wired Funerals

Tim Tuntland, the President co-owner of Litehouse LLC, is starting to introduce video streaming technology to Arizona funeral homes in an effort to help ease the financial and physical burden of travel.

The funeral is a chance to gather, grieve and pay last respects, but sometimes traveling to the goodbye ceremony can be a financial burden on families and a physical burden on people with disabilities.

The technology enables out-of-town funeral guests to watch the funeral, live, via the Internet.

"It's becoming real popular," he said.
