One of the things that will certainly stand out in your research is the relatively low cost of cremation, in comparison to traditional funeral services and burials. With cremation you don’t have to, but you can eliminate:
- Burial plots
And there is the extra convenience of being able to hold a memorial service at a time and place that is suitable for all family members, and which truly reflects the life of your loved one.
- If everyone can’t get to a service to pay their respects because they are ill or out of town, a cremation can take place, and the remains stored in an urn or other container until a mutually beneficial date can be arranged. And, you don’t have to worry about family members flying out of regions with bad weather during the winter months.
- If the family really wants a formal and traditional funeral service, that can still be arranged prior to the actual cremation. But if not, a memorial service can be held at any time and at any location, which further reduces costs. For example, if your loved one was a nature lover, you might consider having the service in a particularly beautiful outdoor location. Or, if your loved one was very active in a specific community or civic organization, they may have a room that can be used for a service.
- Because transporting ashes is far more cost-effective than transporting a body, it becomes quite “do-able” to plan a cremation and memorial service in St. Petersburg, even if the ashes will be transported elsewhere, for example, to a family gravesite up North.
These are some of the reasons why more families are choosing cremation, and more specifically – Legacy Cremation Services.
Cremation is the reasonably priced alternative for final arrangements, offering a customized and dignified tribute at a cost far less than a traditional funeral and burial – at a time when finances are the last thing you want to think about. Legacy can provide a cremation package for any budget, and your family can start the grieving process without incurring additional financial strain.
As a cremation provider for two decades, Legacy guarantees professional, caring service for you and your loved one. Our dedicated and knowledgeable staff is trained to walk you through each step in the cremation process, to answer all of your questions, and to be there for you before, during and after the actual cremation service. And we are available 24 / 7. Give us a call, and let’s talk it through.
And we are there for you before, during and after the final arrangements. If grief counseling is what the surviving family members need, we will find you’re the support that suits you best.
More families are opting for pre-arranged cremation. Family-owned and operated for two decades, Legacy Cremation Services always provides quality cremations at an exceptional value. However, pre-planned cremation arrangements offer an individualized, respectful plan that alleviates the burden of decision-making at a critical time. And, costs are further minimized. St. Petersburg residents can plan according to today’s prices, rather than with a potentially higher future price.
If you decide to pre-plan a cremation with Legacy, make sure your wishes are known to your immediate family members. Talk to your religious representative in advance to clear up any potential conflicts, and include Legacy’s contact information in your last will and testament.
You’ve got options. Have a memorial service after cremation doesn’t mean it has to be less special than a traditional viewing and funeral service. Or, you can have an open or closed casket viewing before the cremation.
The Directors at Legacy can help you honor the life of your loved one in a personalized manner. For example, you can express your love and respect for a recently deceased friend or family member by:
- Writing an obituary for the local newspaper
- Setting up a photographic display that includes pictures of the deceased
- Creating a video or slide show of the special times in the life of the deceased to show to those who attend
- Setting up a special memorial website where friends and family can share their heartfelt condolences and memories from wherever they are.
- Developing a cremation memorial program – or small pamphlet – which encapsulates the life of the deceased and which is presented to all who attend as a memento of this special time.
- Selecting a personalized urn or cremation necklace
- Personalize keepsakes with engraving or laser designs to make the pieces unique.
