Customer Review

Matthew D.

Birmingham, AL

What a blessing Ballard-Durand has been for my family. In tough, hard to handle times, it's people like those at Ballard-Durrand that ease suffering and handle hard to deal with concerns. Matthew, Roy, Joe, Jenna, and the Melissa's, my family and I cannot thank you enough. They are attentive, caring, and respectful in every task. If the unfortunate occurs and arrangements need to be made, I wholeheartedly recommend the team at Ballard-Durand to be there when it's needed most.
