"Grief, Technology, and Inter-Generation Family Support in the COVID Era"

TRAUMA: 
Families are traumatized in the COVID-19 era from disruption in their grief rituals, Family members are dying alone with compounds grief!

TECHNOLOGY:
It has been Dr. Rev. Darrel L. Armstrong's position that technology (Zoom or Skype) convenings for families before, during, and even after the service can be incredible healing opportunities.

THEOLOGY:
We will employ from members of the community of Trenton and from Trenton's High School - College Students as interns and teach them the theology of death and dying.

Why Livestream?

  • Bring the family together. With travel restrictions, stay at home orders, and social distancing, live streaming your funeral allows for the family to experience the
    celebration of life together.
  • Reduce costs and risks. Live streaming allows you to reduce other costs associated with conducting a funeral. The risks associated with our current pandemic are no longer an issue with our
    services.
  • What if I'm not comfortable using technology?
    We offer technical support to make sure all the speakers are prepped with their sound, video, and
    lighting. For hybrid events, we have a technical support person on-site to help you and all attendees with connection to the audiovisual systems - determining the optimal position and settings for cameras/microphone. We will operate all of the technical aspects, leaving you free to participate with peace of mind.
  • Will it be difficult for our family and friends to attend the online memorial service?
    No, it will not be difficult to participate. Your attendees will simply click on a link and they will be able to connect from any Internet-enabled computer or mobile device. If you have elderly attendees who may have trouble logging in for a private service we recommend our optional service to livestream to Facebook or YouTube.
