Going Up Yonder offers Live Streaming Virtual Funeral | Memorial Service. As part of the funeral and memorial services offered.
Live Streaming Virtual Funeral | Memorial Service is a cloud-based service format, specifically used over the internet for its broadcast.
Live Streaming is both Virtual and Interactive…It provides real-time viewership over Zoom, as a way to host the following services:
Viewing of a loved one’s body
A celebration of life
However, the interactive service also extends to a very limited number of immediate family members, that are actually required to be at the funeral home, and or graveside. Which usually includes, the pallbearers, the surviving spouse, and any adult children the deceased may have.
Going Up Yonder™ has taken additional steps to coordinate services for Cremation Urn Burials, and scattered ash Burial at Sea, which can be inclusive of any virtual service, in an effort for you to participate among family, friends, and well-wishers, as part of the virtual viewing audience.
The Virtual portion of this service widely depends upon several factors, some of which include: Your audio/video quality, internet speed, and WiFi connection at your home, or location. The Interactive portion is, totally dependent upon your involvement, or participation level, in the funeral service program.
Whether or not you’re the Program Coordinator, the Pastor, a Soloist, a Musician, or any other required role, deemed necessary for this celebration of life. We simply ask those of you who are requested to participate, to review the program details, prior to the commencement of the funeral | memorial service, in preparation for your cue.
Live Streaming services do involve a combination of several elements.
A ] Your family, friends & well-wishers, will all be in attendance, via a live audio/visual link, that reaches the four corners of the earth, while you’re able to view the funeral service from the comfort of your home.
B] A digital copy of the funeral | memorial program will be provided via e-mail to all family, friends, and well-wishers, who plan on being in attendance, prior to the homecoming celebration.
The live private broadcast, login ID & password credentials via Zoom™ will also be inclusive of the invitation.
C] If you don’t already have a Zoom™ account. We highly suggest and recommend, that you consider setting one up, several days before the event, or alternatively, you can go to zoom.us and follow along using the information instructions provided, so you’re better acquainted with the login access process, prior to the funeral service. [It’s free!]
D] Live Streaming is normally viewed from the comfort of your home and are still considered formal. However, we kindly ask that your attire is appropriately fitting for the occasion, and not extremely too casual. Quite obviously once dressed, shoes aren’t considered a part of these requirements.
E] Even though Live Streaming has a very specific use, there are several other ways this service becomes useful. Many of us may have family and friends who are currently hospitalized, in Nursing homes or Retirement homes, and we wouldn’t want them to miss this occasion.
Live Streaming is useful and works well in many ways. One very good example is, funeral and memorial services. it provisions most families and friends who are overseas, either stationed in the military or living overseas, that aren’t able to travel back to physically attend the service.
Rest assure… We’ll make every effort to coordinate this Homecoming, with the true spirit and feeling of closeness, as though you were physically present, to bear witness.
Please keep in mind. Your Funeral Services Coordinator will collaborate with the Funeral Home Director, and the audio/visual broadcasting team, to make your love one’s send-off, memorable!
Another very important factor, everyone who plans to be virtually in attendance, are asked to attend the virtual rehearsal, usually scheduled the day before the celebration of life, so you can familiarize yourself with Zoom protocols, the program itself, especially if you are a participant in the program schedule.
If for any reason you or any of your attendees are having trouble with the login access, please notify the Funeral Services Coordinator, at least 48 hours prior to the start of this event, and someone will be able to assist.
