When you lose a loved one, you probably think about being around friends and family to grieve. With steps being taken to lower the spread of COVID-19, people in Pennsylvania are finding they have to remember that life lost in a different way. The Frank Duca Funeral Home and Crematory has been a part of Johnstown for over 70 years. Owner Frank Duca, tells us he's never had to limit the number of people allowed to attend a funeral like he has to now. Duca says they've been given orders from the Pennsylvania Funeral Directors Association and Governor Wolf to make all services private right now. Including Church Services and limiting them to 10 people or less, to help in the efforts of decreasing the spread of COVID-19. Duca says this can be very difficult for large families, but he says so far everyone has been understanding of the situation. He says they're still here for families 24/7 but will have to do things a little differently for the time being making arrangements by phone, email or Skype until this time passes. But Duca encourages families to come back at a later date to remember their loved one together.
