“The only thing that made the experience bearable was, for once in my life I had the ability to share some burden. The staff at Ballard-Durand helped me through the entire process.” – Liz King

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

“It wasn’t your typical, ‘sorry for your loss’, it was personal. The job Ballard-Durand did was absolutely beautiful. I will never forget Matthew, or the team who works with him.” – Mike Bizzoco

My whole family was very impressed with the way Ballard-Durand in White Plains handled my mother's funeral.  The staff was caring, compassionate, attentive and professional.  Every detail was done perfectly and in a timely manner from beginning to end, right down to the gentleman who saved us a parking space by the entrance.  We were very touched by the dinner they provided the day my mother passed away.  It was a lovely gesture.  At a very stressful time, this was extremely important to us, and we had many positive comments from visitors.  I highly recommend Ballard-Durand.
