  • The Changing Attitude About Death

    Back
    A little old man shuffled slowly into an ice cream parlor and pulled himself slowly, painfully, up onto a stool. After catching his breath, he ordered a banana split.
    The waitress asked kindly, "Crushed nuts?"
    "No," he replied. "Arthritis."

    A Funeral Home in South Carolina will soon offer Starbucks Coffee, lattes, and free Wi-Fi for those grieving over their loved ones.
    Some say the best way to grieve over a loved one is being around the family and friends and remembering all the good times you shared with someone who passed. Maybe that was in 1998. A better way is to drink a cinnamon dolce frappuccino while updating your Facebook page.While a Starbucks sign won’t be displayed in the funeral home and Starbucks employees won’t actually be working on site, coffee shop workers at the Robinsons Home in Easley, S.C. will be Starbucks trained baristas and will offer the coffee chains official menu. And it’s not just for the grieving. The new coffee shop will also be available to the public through a patio entrance, in case you feel like swinging by a funeral home to relax and read a book while sipping espresso.The “Coffee Corner” which is on the opposite side of the funeral grounds away from the chapel, will also have a fireplace and television, and the funeral home’s owners hope it will give the bereaved another way to cope.
