MILWAUKEE -- Lifelong Packers fans understand.
Nothing much gets in the way of a game, and that includes death, or at least discretionary times for funeral observances.
With the Green Bay Packers in the Super Bowl, that goes double.
"Once they beat Philadelphia, we didn't know when the games were going to be scheduled," said Brent Perkins, a funeral director at Hartson Funeral Home in Hales Corners. "They were scheduling funerals and then rescheduling once the times were known. This Sunday, it would be highly unlikely anyone would schedule anything during the Super Bowl."
Throughout the season, funeral directors routinely make sure that families are aware of any potential conflict with the Packers. Most decide to schedule visitation and services either before or after a game, sometimes even on another day.
