(Serving the Tacoma, WA community).
On top of the grief, the responsibility of making final arrangements can be daunting,
especially with all the choices available today.
Legacy is proud of our reputation in the Tacoma community, and helping the town to grow. Legacy is well-equipped to walk you through all the details, and help you to determine the best choices to honor your loved one, your family’s spiritual needs, and your wallet.
Call Legacy, and alleviate the pressure.
Why cremation pre-planning? Family-owned and operated, Legacy always provides quality cremations at an exceptional value. However, pre-planned cremation arrangements offer a respectful plan that alleviates the burden of making all those decisions at a critical time. And, costs are minimized. Tacoma residents can plan with today’s prices, rather than with a potentially higher future price.
You might want to consider pre-planning your own cremation, especially if you are entering your later years and have a limited income. This gives you a chance to make your wishes known, reduces the strain on your loved ones when you pass, and may even feel empowering. Create a new tradition by calling a Legacy cremation consultant.
Why the cremation solution? 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 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.
You’ve got options.
- Trying something new. We want to you know, first of all, that it is perfectly all right to do it differently. Cremation has grown in popularity over the past two decades, not only because of the rising costs of traditional funerals, but because cremation allows for a meaningful, personalized tribute to your loved one. More and more people have chosen cremation in order to be more financially responsible, and have found it to be emotionally satisfying. Give some thought to whether this works for you and your family.
Some people are actually upset by viewing a dead body. The cremation option eliminates this issue, and may promote a healthier grieving process.
- The value of exploring 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 if you want to pre-plan a cremation service. Cremation reduces the carbon footprint, because:
- Cremated remains (cremains) take up a much smaller space than a burial. While the average human body takes up between 5 and 6 feet, cremains can easily fit into a container the size of a shoe box.
- Burial may occur in a more natural container, such as a basket made of reeds or grass.
- The family can decide not to bury the cremains at all, instead opting to keep them in a beautiful urn or other container available through Legacy.
- Legacy can help you scatter the cremains in a natural open place: over the waters of an ocean or lake, drifting through the air in the mountains during a beautiful moonlight service, or throughout a garden where the spirit of the deceased can roam free. Or, a natural container can be floated out into open water instead of being buried in the ground
- There is no need for embalming, which helps to preserve the earth for future generations.
- Customized memorial services. A memorial service can be planned for after the actual cremation, and it can be held at any location. No need for an elaborate service at a funeral home or church. Be creative. Have a small cremation service at home, at a park, or at a community center. You may find that this is far more meaningful and intimate. If you want a religious service, we can find you a chapel of just the right size.
In fact, a Legacy cremation counselor can help you select flowers, music and lighting, and can help you prepare memorial programs, photo displays, videos and slideshows, and even a memorial web site.
- Creating mementos. The family has the option of creating mementos from the cremated ashes, for example beautiful cremation jewelry, available through Legacy, that can be worn. Cremation picture frames can store favorite pictures of the deceased. These options allow the legacy of the deceased to live on in the physical world.
Regardless of the choices you make, a meaningful ceremony of any kind that serves as a tribute to the life that has been lived, will help the family to cope with the loss of a loved one.
