Co-owner Dave McComb says videoconferencing is a convenient and cost-effective way for family and friends to participate in services without having to deal with expensive and difficult last-minute travel. The funeral home also plans to offer free video streaming of funeral services to military personnel stationed away from home.  (AP)
