How to Honor a Life

veteran benefitsOne thing you can do to begin the healing process is to pay your respects in a distinctly personal way: What did he or she stand for? Value? Teach you?

Ask us about all the ways we can help you to uniquely celebrate your loved one’s legacy: burial at sea, scattering of cremains, interment of the ashes, viewings, and memorial services. Each can be done with a personal touch.

Scattering at Sea

scatering seaThe popularity of scattering at sea is steadily growing as people look to the organic nature of the ocean to help them bring closure to their loss.

Scattering at sea combines a sense of finality with a new beginning, as it returns us to nature and our origins.

If you are considering scattering the cremains of a loved one, we have lots of helpful information.

Affordable Cremation Services serving Augusta-Richmond, GA:
We’ll Answer All your Questions.

A commitment to providing well thought-out final arrangements,
while preserving the traditions and customs of your family and loved one.

Losing a loved one is inevitable, and we understand how devastating that can be. If you’re responsible for making the final arrangements, that can feel overwhelming. That is why your first call should be to Legacy – the premiere cremation provider assisting families in your area – where our professional cremation staff is available around the clock to help you through every decision.

Legacy is a licensed cremation provider, with high ratings
from a national Cremation directory service.

When you have questions or doubts it is important to get answers before making these important decisions. Knowing what exactly is involved in the cremation process, and what it means for you and your family will help you to make a choice that is best for everyone. We are here to help in every way possible. This requires dedication, professionalism, compassion and attention to detail. That’s what Legacy cremation consultants strive to provide from the first moment of contact.

Together we will celebrate a life with honor and respect.

Why cremation? Because it is the reasonably priced alternative for final arrangements, offering a customized, dignified and meaningful tribute at a cost far less than a traditional funeral and burial. With all the options available, cremation costs are less prohibitive – at a time when finances are the last thing you want to think about. Your family can start the grieving process without incurring additional financial strain.

More than anything, the cremation process offers the flexibility
to celebrate each life in a unique and personal way.

Sometimes it’s a matter of asking the right questions.
Legacy will make sure you are fully informed and fully satisfied.

Things you may be surprised to find out:

  • How flexible is a cremation service? Cremation services can be very simple or, if you prefer, cremation services can be as elaborate and as detailed as a regular burial service.
  • Can I create a unique service? Legacy is very experienced in putting together cremation packages that suit any family’s needs and preferences, both spiritually and financially. Ask us about all the options.
  • What exactly happens during the cremation process? In the simplest of terms, cremation is a process during which the body is exposed to extreme heat. It usually takes more than two hours and requires temperatures between 1400 degrees and 2000 degrees Fahrenheit. During this process, the body is reduced to basic elements; organs and other soft tissue are vaporized by the intense heat. Afterwards, the bones are reduced even further until a fine ash-like substance remains.
  • What is a direct cremation? This is one of the most economical options available at Legacy. With direct cremation, Legacy transports the body directly from the location of death to the crematorium. This will work for you if your beliefs do not require embalming or visitation. An alternative container, made from combustible materials, is usually used.
  • What if I want to have a service AFTER the cremation? No problem. Legacy can help you arrange a meaningful cremation memorial service after the cremation.
  • Do I need to purchase a casket? Generally, a casket is not needed if you select a cremation package for your loved one. However, there may be instances when it is desirable to have one. For example, if you are planning a funeral service, especially at a church, a coffin gives guests something concrete to look at. A casket may also add a sense of dignity to the proceedings, but it is entirely your choice.
  • Is it possible to rent a casket? Surprisingly, if you decide that a casket is necessary you can rent one for the service through Legacy. Ask your cremation consultant.
  • Cremation lends itself to diverse belief systems and cultures. This is one of the reasons why over 30% of all final arrangements are now cremations. Every family – and individual – has unique beliefs and values, and cremation is a particularly flexible alternative, allowing your family to pass down its legacy in a unique way. And Legacy will stand by you, willing and able to guide you through all the decisions so that we can provide meaningful and personalized final arrangements.
  • What are our options regarding the ashes? The experienced and professional cremation staff at Legacy will be happy to help you make this decision:
    • You can purchase a variety of urns from Legacy, and keep the urn in your home.
    • If you choose not buy an urn, a simple cardboard or plastic box will be provided by Legacy. This may be sufficient if you are planning to scatter the ashes of your loved one.
    • If you are planning to have the ashes placed in a columbarium (a place specifically designated for the purpose of holding the ashes of the deceased) with a glass front niche, an urn may be a requirement.
    • If you are planning to bury the ashes in a cemetery plot after the cremation, this is also possible, but keep in mind that there may be guidelines that must be followed.

No matter the family decides, Legacy makes sure that all laws, statutes, and rules are followed.

Legacy Cremation Services, serving Augusta-Richmond, GA,

It is our way of helping your make the decisions that are right for you and your family.
