Episodes Notes

The global COVID 19 pandemic has disrupted the grieving process for many across Canada.

A number of restrictions, including putting a limit of 10 or less on gatherings has lead funeral homes and other services, to find alternative ways to hold funerals and celebrations of life.

"In our funeral home, we're just amazed at how quickly things have changed when it comes to physical distancing. We're limiting the number of people allowed at each service and changing the ways we do things," explained Libby Siebold, funeral director of Sobering Funeral Chapel.

She says in some situations those who have lost a loved one have either chosen to live stream the funeral service online or postpone it altogether.
