Plan for the Inevitable…

Pre-planning your funeral should be a natural part of life, because it provides you with time to make end-of-life decisions in a calm and rational atmosphere. Start the online planning process now, or meet with one of our pre-planning advisors. It just makes sense.

“Tony and I never really considered pre-planning our funeral, but we want to made it easier on our children. I don’t want me kids to go through something like this when something happens to us.”

– Angela “Angel” and Tony Olivieri

Matthew and the entire team at Ballard-Durand have been nothing short of superlative. I virtually never write reviews, but Matt and the team deserve one. They have gone over and above what anyone could possibly expect from a funeral home. Unfortunately, in my life, I have had to deal with tragedies. However, to date, this loss was my greatest. I could not have asked for any better services from anyone. They have my unconditionally, highest rating and I would recommend anyone, going through the tragedy of a loved one's death, to reach out to them.
