The author discusses 10 ways funeral homes can use quick response (QR) codes. He broke down the usage of QR codes into three categories, which are memoralization, user convenience and advertising. Under memoralization, he suggests creating online obituaries and having the QR code visible on that page. He also recommends creating a memorial folder and then using the QR codes for the deceased's online obituary and add the image to the printed memorial folder.
