Funeral Home is a Place where the deceased is viewed (or not) by family and friends.It's where people get together to show their respect to the deceased and their family. If the Funeral Home chooses to give the family something to drink, that's fine, because they are there the longest. As for everyone else, get your Star Bucks after you leave. A Funeral Home is no place to have a Star Bucks.
