Legacy is here to help with emergency obit updates, remote funeral participation, and more.
Funeral homes and the communities they serve are already feeling the impacts of the COVID-19 epidemic. Legacy’s full-service platform has deployed significant resources and fast-tracked critical new products to support our funeral home partners with emergency obituary updates, consumer-focused end-of-life resources, and remote funeral participation.

All our resources are available to the funeral home community. Any funeral home staff member can reach out to our dedicated funeral home support team 7 days a week for help with obituary updates:

Hours: Email: 5:30am – 10pm Central Time, daily. Phones: 8am – 6pm CST, daily.
Response time: Emails typically receive a response within one hour, often less.

Online Funeral Video Services
Legacy has partnered with Tukios to help funeral homes and the bereaved offer remote video services that reinforce social distancing.
Now, funeral homes can leverage Tukios’ industry leading platform to upload video recordings of funeral services, so those unable to attend can watch the service once it has concluded. Tukios will host the video, create the URL, and work with Legacy to update the obituary.
To get started, funeral homes can contact Tukios at [email protected] or 801-682-4391.
If a funeral home already has a video hosted online, they can easily add it to a Legacy obituary by contacting our Support team at the information listed above.
