We also want to take the opportunity to thank the community for their support and prayers for Fred and our family during his battle with cancer. Even though he is no longer with us, our tradition of a family owned and operated funeral home continues with the recent addition of Richard VanderLaan and Kelly VanderLaan to our staff. Richard and Kelly are the children of the late Fred VanderLaan and current owner, Joanne VanderLaan and the grandchildren of the founder, the late Raymond VanderLaan.
