With the arrival of COVID-19, funeral homes in Hallsville, TX saw a big increase in the number of people holding virtual services for their loved ones. While at times this was the only option as the number of people who could gather together was limited, this is no longer the case. Even so, hosting a virtual service still remains a popular option for many families.
This could be for a number of reasons. Some families may wish to save on the overall expense while others may have family members who cannot travel but still wish to attend a service. Whatever the reason may be, if you are considering hosting a virtual service, but not sure what all is involved, keep reading as we cover what you need to know about these services.
A virtual service is a service that is streamed live on an online platform. This could be over a conferencing softer such as Zoom, or it could be streamed live over a social media platform such as Facebook.
The virtual service could be held a couple of different ways. One, the service could be held entirely live in person with a streaming view for those who cannot travel a chance to view it and “attend” virtually. With this option, the service would be conducted just as normal with all speakers and such being at the actual service delivering their remarks. The only aspect of this is that there would be the live stream so that those who are far away could view it.
The other option is to have a small service in person with perhaps just immediate family and then have all others who are going to participate join in virtually. This means that the speakers would be in their own homes and deliver their remarks using the conferencing software.
No matter what types of virtual service you decide, there are some important things you will need to decide.
