    Dwayne and family,

    I feel honored to have known such a wonderful woman. I will cherish the times I got to spend with her, Dwayne and my grandparents on vacation together. You are deep in my prayers.

  2. So sad to hear of Martha passing. The world lost a unique person for sure. Martha was inquisitive, sure of her boundaries, reasonable, and certainly not pretentious. The Lundeen family did love to pick Dwayne and her blackberries hoping not to encounter a random snake which I’m convinced she would never consider removing (it’s one of Gods creations). She was the matriarch of a wonderful family and led a very dignified life.
