Why Plan Ahead

A Tradition of Compassion

“Plans are nothing; planning is everything.”
-Dwight D. Eisenhower

What is pre-planning, and why should I consider it?
Pre-planning relieves the burden of making arrangements at the most difficult time, enabling the family and friends to better support each others’ sorrow. It provides comfort to the family that final wishes are respected and allows the funeral to focus on the living and deal with their grief. Pre-planning is capable of relieving any financial and emotional burden on families and friends and makes it easier for those we love.

Where does the money go?
The pre-funded monies collected are placed into an individual, interest bearing FDIC insured trust account with the NJ Prepaid Funeral Trust Fund. You can begin your investment with as little as $500. For more information please visit the “Funeral Planning CHOICES” section of the NJ Funeral Directors Assn. website at

How do I make arrangements?
Arrangements can be made at the funeral home, via phone or mail, or by house calls. Please call us at 973-347-0165 to schedule your appointment.
