In this episode of The 411 Live, we are joined by Troy Robertson, owner of Northwest Funeral Chapel, and Chandra Staples, the sister of Leon Staples, who passed away from the Coronavirus.
First Responders are very important to today’s pandemic, but we often forget about the Last Responders…Funeral Homes. The Coronavirus has changed the way funeral services are conducted and it is very painful for the family. Families can’t gather to show love and support for one another and sadly, there is a limit to the number of people that can gather in one place for a funeral. This has in some cases left the majority of family members not being able to pay their final respects or painfully watching it virtually through live stream.
Chandra Staples understands such an experience given the passing of her brother. Listen along as she graciously tells us her experience of planning and going to a funeral during a time like this and Troy Robertson explains how it is to be an owner of a funeral home during this pandemic. This is The 411 Live. Real People. Real Talk.
