    I would love to take this opportunity to thank  “Nick” and his staff, for the “excellent”  and most professional service that I’ve ever experienced thus far in terms of funeral services. Nick and staff were always there for us since day one up until after the service, and, still til’ this day, he reaches out to check on the family. Nothing but top professionalism and I highly recommend this specific location for any and all services they provide. Again, Thank you Nick n Staff.

    I realize that those who choose this profession are trained in caring  for those who grieve but Jim went far above expectations. He listened and guided. He ignored me tears while I tried to talk through them and took my hand with strength. The room was beautiful. The woman who actually stayed with us during the wake were kind and helpful.  I only hope that if someone is looking for a funeral home will read this and end their search with Vander Platt’s.  Lynne DeMeo

    Our family cannot find the words effectively enough to thank Nick Vanderplaat, his Dad Jim, Jim L,and Denise in the office for their genuine compassion and empathy.  Nick, you were always there for us with immediate answers. You were a true gentleman and so efficient. Your efforts and sincere concern went above and beyond and we will FOREVER be grateful.  There is NO more emotional time in ones life  than having to bury The one you love..With tears in my eyes I say THANK YOU with ALL of our hearts for making this broken-hearted  and grief-stricken time as painless as possible. Thank you sooo much !! Most Appreciatively Yours, ~The Berger and Flemming Families.~

    Jim and his staff at VanderPlaat Vermuelen in Franklin Lakes did a wonderful job with mymom’s Service. They arranged for her to be flown up from Florida and to be buried on Long Island.Jim arranged for me to meet with Father John At Blessed Sacrament and we planned a lovely mass. Everything went so smoothly. Guests commented on what a nice service. His son, Nick made a lovely dvd of my mom’s Photos. I could not have been happier.

    The care and attention to detail were very appreciated. The staff went above and beyond to respond and carry out every request and answer every question and help in every way, especially with our quest to get military honors. Nick listened with his heart and responded that way as well to all our concerns during the planning. He also responded promptly and was very informative and courteous at all times.

    Nick (and his staff) were wonderful. Very supportive, considerate, and professional. Also always available and immediately responsive to our needs, like correcting obituary (our mistakes) and polishing the video. Mike L. was also terrific as was Mike V.

    Nick was amazing.  He made the family feel so comfortable with his kindness and a heart warming that touched us all.  Nick is a clear example on how it should be done.  My mom looked beautiful.   I have not seen my mom look like my mom in years.  Nick brought that back to my mom and  the family will always remember her the way she use to be.    Nick was our angel.  Please thank him from the bottom of our hearts. Doula and Richard O’Donnell.
