'Mourning 2.0'

Mourning 2.0 refers to advances in funeral home technology that allow the bereaved to digitally remember their loved ones.

This includes everything from live streaming a funeral service or creating memorial Web pages with videos and photos, to producing "QR code" chips that can adhere to tombstones.

When visitors scan the QR codes with a smartphone, they get a Web page with photos, videos or a comment section where they can share memories.
