"My experience at Arch L Heady couldn't have been any better. Ann was very kind and thoughtful. We had told her how Mark (deceased) was a U of L fan and she added Louisville Cardinals decorations to the room he was laid out in. His portrait also had a U of L touch to it. That made me feel good. The family thought I had done the U of L touch, I let them know this was from the funeral home. Thank you for all you did. Much appreciated."
