With Legacy Cremation Services, serving Chicago, IL:
Cremation is the Affordable Option.
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 your area – where our professional staff is available around the clock to help you through every decision.
Lessen the burden and the stress;
make cremation arrangements ahead of time.
Why cremation? Because it 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. 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.
Why Legacy? Because as a cremation provider for two decades, Legacy guarantees professional, caring service for you and your loved one. Our dedicated and knowledgeable cremation consultants are 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.
Why pre-plan a cremation service? Family-owned and operated for two decades, Legacy 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. Chicago residents can plan with today’s prices, rather than with a potentially higher future price.
You’ve got options. The cremation 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 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.
Legacy would be honored to guide you through this process, helping you to find templates for printed materials, videos and web sites, and share with you from our long-standing experience what works well and what doesn’t.
Honor your loved one the Legacy way. We know you want to provide a meaningful tribute and honor the wishes of your loved one, so you may want to discuss preferences now. With this understanding ahead of time, Legacy will be better equipped to advise you and prepare for everything in advance. We will always go the extra mile so that you can have the arrangements that you want. For example:
- What songs should be sung at the service?
- Who should give a eulogy?
- Is there a last message your loved one would like conveyed to family and friends?
More interesting things to know about the cremation process:
Much of the civilized world finds cremation perfectly acceptable. Only in the USA and Canada is embalming (preservation of bodies past the normal stages of decomposition during burial) the prevalent custom. More and more families are turning to Legacy to arrange a unique, meaningful, and affordable cremation package.
Pre-planning is the essence of convenience. By pre-planning a cremation, final arrangements can be carried out as quickly as is convenient for everyone concerned, even with close family members living all over the country – or even around the world.
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.
The cremation process is an earth-friendly alternative. If being “green” is a prominent part of your life, there is no need to abandon that philosophy when planning final arrangements for a loved one, or for yourself. Ask us why the cremation option is the eco-friendly option.
