CHICAGO (FOX 32 News) - The Wheeling Village Board on Monday approved a new liquor license that allows Kolssak Funeral Home to server alcohol during wakes and funerals, according to a report.

David Kolssak, who is the CFO of Kolssak Funeral Home, says he wants to keep up with the changing ways that families celebrate the death of loved ones.

"Right now we're pioneering, we're out there looking far out, thinking these things could change the life celebrations at a funeral home," David Kolssak told The Daily Herald. "The spirit of this is not to do nothing but help people at a time of need."

Kolssak says they've received an "overwhelming" and positive response from people across the county.
