The John F. Pfleger Funeral Home and the Pfleger family are proud to have served Monmouth County for 58 years and for three generations;
Welcome to our website. Since 1956 the Pfleger family has been offering services with compassion, integrity, and real value right here in our hometown. Whatever your needs are we will strive to exceed your highest expectations. Below you will find a little information on what we hold to be important to our family, and to our business.
Compassion as defined by Merriam-Webster: sympathetic consciousness of others’ distress together with a desire to alleviate it.
In our Funeral Home we strive to help every family we serve the same way we would want to be helped should the roles be reversed. Losing someone dear to you is hard. The Pfleger family and the staff of the John F. Pfleger Funeral Home have made it our mission to help others through this difficult time.
Integrity as defined by Merriam-Webster: 1. firm adherence to a code of especially moral or artistic values: incorruptibility; 2. an unimpaired condition: soundness; 3. the quality or state of being complete or undivided: completeness.
Barbara Killinger offers another definition:
Integrity is a personal choice, an uncompromising and predictably consistent commitment to honor moral, ethical, spiritual and artistic values and principles.
Integrity is often regarded as the honesty and truthfulness of one's actions. We have always prided ourselves on being honest and truthful with all of the families that we serve. As you go through the difficult process of making funeral arrangements for your loved one, know that our family and our employees will conduct ourselves with the utmost integrity.
There are two different concepts of value and they both have a place in our Funeral Home. The first considers the relative worth, utility, or importance (Merriam-Webster), of the services we perform; or rather, why we as a people get a feeling of worth for a service for our loved ones.
In ethics, value denotes something's degree of importance, with the aim of determining what action or life is best to do or live – Wikipedia
Three generations of our family have been committed to providing dignified and meaningful funeral services for the members of our community.
The second concept is the feeling of getting “our money’s worth” for the services rendered. Our Funeral Home does not change our prices or offerings simply to “beat the competition” because we believe that our prices are the best in the area for any given service and reflect our many years of experience and service. You’ll find our price list right here on our website because we have nothing to hide. As with any other investment, we know that you are paying not just for the services you will receive, but the quality of those services.
As for the value of the funeral service there have been many things written on the subject, but I would like to use this quote:
"Show me the manner in which a nation cares for its dead, and I will measure with mathematical exactness the tender mercies of its people their respect for the laws of the land and their loyalty to high deeds." - William Gladstone
