ONLINE MEMORIALIZATION SUPPORT FOR YOUR FUNERAL HOME PARTNERS

Legacy has partnered with Tukios to help funeral homes and the bereaved offer remote video services that reinforce social distancing.

Your funeral home partners 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, just have your funeral home partners 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.

STAY UPDATED

During the weeks ahead, we will be providing regular updates, resources and advice for newspapers, funeral homes, and families during the epidemic. Sign up for our newsletter to get the latest or visit sales.legacy.com/coronavirus-information for live updates to our coverage.
