Digital First: Local funeral homes forced to create other memorial options for grieving families


Monday Mayor George Flaggs Jr. held a meeting including all funeral homes in Vicksburg. During that meeting, the mayor discussed the precautions needed to be taken with large groups battling against the coronavirus.

After the initial meeting, the funeral home directors and owners were expected to take a different approach with how they typically handle their memorial services.

C.J. Williams Mortuary Services located in Vickburg is one of the many funeral that were pushed to look at multiple options for having a memorial service.

“Here in CJ Williams mortuary services.

Williams.
