Funeral homes adopting Skype
FORT WAYNE - The same online technology that allows grandparents to bond with out-of-state grandchildren is also allowing far-flung relatives to participate in funeral calling hours.
Skype, a video-conferencing service, is being offered locally by D.O. McComb & Sons Funeral Home at no additional cost to families booking services through one of the Fort Wayne company's eight locations, co-owner Dave McComb said.
By logging onto the Skype website and placing a call, users can see and hear each other. That allowed a son living in Australia to attend the visiting hours for his mother late last year.
