The Loving Staff at Lunnings~ Want to say "Thank You" from the bottom of our hearts for all the love and compassion that you gave momma from the time of the call until the end of the service.

I am writing to thank you again for your kindness and thoughtfulness at the time of my sister Karen’s death. Making funeral arrangements immediatley after being in a car/semi crash was one of the hardest things I have ever had to do. Your patience and gentle guidance were a great comfort. Your willingness to stay late that afternoon meant we didnt have to make an extra trip to Burlington. Many, MANY thanks for all that you did.

Thank you for all your personal touches to make our mother's service so special. She would be very pleased with how she looked. Her appearance was always important to her. I am especially thankful that you were able to find "Primrose Lane" to play and send her off to be with dad. I know she is finally resting peacefully and where she has wanted to be for a long time. It is a hard time to get through, but all of you have helped us so much.
