While my husband’s death was expected, it is never easy when it actually occurs. Perhaps 2 years ago, I was in touch with Neptune Society in Florida where I live, and I had a basic understanding of the service being offered, did not take a contract at the time, and the actual death occurred New Jersey. Alvin Chan was a blessing! From the moment I reached him, we were able to communicate easily, he understood everything I was trying to achieve overall, and he worked with me seamlessly to make it happen. There were many moving parts, but on his end, he achieved everything ahead of schedule, was patient when I had delays, and especially the delay of our chosen urn being shipped up from home in Florida, but he was steadfast in supporting our wishes and everything went without a moment of anxiety. I am proud of the work that Neptune does and so grateful for the kindness, compassion, and professionalism showed by Alvin to my family. He happened to be a great guy, extremely warm and caring. It was a pleasure to have him available to us, and he went out of his way to accommodate me including meeting with me in my lobby when necessary. I couldn’t have asked for more! Accolades to Neptune Cremation Society in Paramus and Alvin Chan.

What is a Cremation Plan?
A cremation plan is a written document that defines your choice of cremation for your final needs. Whether you are choosing cremation as a green funeral option, for its low cost, or for its simplicity, it is important to define and announce your wish.
A cremation plan may be as simple as a handwritten, signed piece of paper shared with your family or as formal as an estate planning document filed with your attorney. A cremation plan should:
- Clearly state your choice of cremation for final needs
- Identify your choice of cremation service provider
- State your wish for disposition of your cremated remains
- Cremation burial
- Scattering ashes in a meaningful place
- Placement in a mausoleum or columbarium
- Placement with a loved one
- Interment in the Memorial Reef
- Identify any advanced payment made for cremation services
You needn’t do it alone. We’re here to help.
