WILMINGTON, Del. - A Wilmington funeral home is now doing drive-thru services. The building used to be a bank, so they just converted the drive-thru window to now accommodate services to offer families a way to mourn “together” while social distancing.
“This was a PNC bank building when we purchased the bank there was a teller line right here,” said Evan Smith of Evan W. Smith Funeral Services.
The former bank drive-thru has now become a funeral drive- thru in Wilmington.
“With COVID and the restrictions, we wanted to be able to offer families a public gathering- to have more than 10 people but do it in a safe way,” said Smith.
Evan Smith recently redesigned his family-owned funeral home, and families can now pay their respects through a window from a safe distance.
