Funeral homes adapting to new mandates

Families who have lost loved ones this past week, along with funeral directors are facing more difficult decisions while planning arrangements.  The limitations on public gatherings are making the mourning process more challenging.  Tim Kinnard, funeral director with Wiesner & Massart Funeral Homes in Casco and Algoma, says family members he has dealt with this week have been very understanding.



Kinnard adds that extra safety precautions are taken by staff by following strict procedures set down by National Funeral Directors and public health departments when removing deceased loved ones from their homes.  Some funeral homes are offering live-streamed videos of services, but Kinnard says he has not decided to do that yet because funerals can be personal for families and be private at times.
