Funeral Home Licensed To Serve

(Wheeling, IL) — A casket-side toast to the dearly departed could be a regular thing now that a Wheeling funeral home has been given a license to serve alcohol. The “Daily Herald” reports that David Kolssak says his funeral home will be the first in the state with a license to serve drinks to mourners. He says contemporary funerals more frequently have become celebrations of a person’s life, so a drink in their honor is appropriate.
