Pay your respects to the deceased without having to leave your car.

America brought the world the drive in movie, the drive in bank and the drive in take away now a Californian undertaker plans to introduce the drive in funeral parlour. Paul Fuller tells Cathal MacCoille what drive in mourners can expect.

They would see a large window and inside of the window would be placed the remains placed in a garden setting. And it would be something like standing on the edge of a cliff looking off into the mountains with a waterfall and creek that will be activated.

The plan is not to interfere with conventional ways of mourning at present but perhaps in the future the whole service could be drive in. So far according to Paul Fuller most reaction to the idea has been positive.
