Customer Review

I've lived in the area for over 60 years and never went to Ballard Durand. When my Mother in law passed away, my wife wanted to use them for the services. I have to admit to being wary of the decision.
I couldn't have been more wrong. I never met a nicer, more caring group of people. Not only did they attend to our questions and desires, they anticipated our needs so we never even had to ask. They made a difficult time in our lives so much easier. Couldn't be more pleased..
