SAGINAW, MI – Sometimes a quickie is all the time you have. But, if all the time you have is eternity, then what’s the rush?

In our fast-food, drive-through world, the next logical step is the drive-up funeral, or at least a drive-through visitation.

That’s what the Paradise Funeral Chapel in Saginaw, MI, is offering for the family of the dearly departed and those who just want to say goodbye and depart quickly.

Ivan Phillips is the guy who runs Paradise (the funeral chapel, that is). He thinks this is a good idea because it gives people a chance to pay their respects even when they’re running late for whatever, or if it’s raining.

"When you enter the drive thru you'll drop a memorial into the memorial box, sign the register book, drive forward, and you'll be able to sit in the privacy of your vehicle for three minutes."

So, could it be just a matter of time before someone comes up with a way to sell a burger and fries on your way out?

But, come to think of it, there would always be that big question of just where did the meat came from.
