Mrs. Luneburg is without question one of the nicest, most pleasant people I have ever met. She is truly one of those rare, special people that became your friend as soon as you met her. Her warm, compassionate smile will be missed but fond memories of her will live on in our hearts forever. The world is definitely a better place because of this special lady. Our sympathies are with Barry, Donna, and Nancy and the entire Luneburg family over the loss of their matriarch. Your Mom lives on in your souls for all eternity. Rest in peace Mrs. Luneburg.
