Since 1927 the Vander Plaat Memorial Home has had a tradition of service to the families we serve and the community. In a mobile society we understand that it is not always possible to attend calling hours or the funeral service.

As a service to our community the Vander Plaat Memorial Home will forward your words of condolence, printed on the card of your choice. Using one of our stock greetings or with your own words of condolence printed inside.

We will see that your message is received by the appropriate family member. There is NO CHARGE for this service and we would be honored to help you let that special friend, relative or business associate know that your thoughts and prayers are with them.

After selecting a cover for your condolence card, fill out the short form. Your card will be printed, and either hand delivered or mailed to the deceased family.

Please choose your cover image:

John, Cyndy and Bethie, I am very sorry to hear about John's mom passing. I read her obituary and she sounds like she certainly led a wonderful life and was a wonderful person. I know you will miss her. I am thinking of you and praying for you and all your family in this difficult time. With much love, Eileen

I had the pleasure of taking care of Mrs. Martel in the rehab where she was staying. We bonded over sharing the same birthday. She was so sweet and fun to talk to. She was always so grateful when she saw me and I always looked forward to seeing her. My prayers are with Mrs. Martel's family during this time. God bless her always.
