“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

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.
