Calvillo Funeral Home to offer drive-thru memorial services

Posted: Updated:
LUBBOCK, Texas -

Calvillo Funeral Home and Chapel will start offering drive-thru funeral services.

Beginning Wednesday, April 8, families and friends of the deceased will have the option to stay in their cars while paying respects through a window. There's also a virtual tribute wall to sign and flower arrangements can be sent through the funeral home's website.

The owners say this gives family members the chance to give moral support and get closure.

"It's going to be safe for the community. Safe for the families...we have to have mourning time. That's just life, and we have to celebrate their life. Without having the remains present it really isn't any closure or saying goodbye," Owner Richard Calvillo said.

Calvillo added the services are on a trial basis, but could be added to a second location in the future.
