Family Owned and Operated
What Does Family Owned and Operated Mean?
The words "family owned and operated" has great meaning in today's world
of corporate buy outs. Today a large number of local family owned funeral
homes have been bought out by large corporate concerns. These corporations
have no connection to the community and are run by some far away corporate office.
The staff and employees of these funeral homes have a responsibility to the corporate
office and to the share holders, which are more concerned with profitability than the community
they work in. The Vander Plaat Memorial Home, Paramus is owned and operated by the Vander Plaat Family. For four generations we have been here to serve the community and we will be here tomorrow with the same compassion and caring that our firm was founded.
What Does it Mean to Me and My Family?
