Just when you thought you had seen everything, along comes a drive-thru funeral home. The city of Compton is home to the Adam's Funeral Home, which is equipped with a drive-thru viewing area.

The drive-thru funeral home's viewing room lets mourners view the deceased from the comfort of their own cars. The service is usually reserved for the prominent members of the Compton community like Bernice Woods, a Compton city councilwoman who recently passed and is featured in the video above. Drive-thru viewings are open to all members of the community, and the funeral home was especially popular with gang members during the 1980s which led to the installation of bulletproof glass. As macabre as this idea may seem, it is actually quite touching to see so many strangers taking advantage of the drive-thru viewing area to pay their respects. Now I have seen it all.
