I know you are still with us. I can still feel your spirit shining though. I know you are watching over us and smiling because you have left us with so many happy memories that we can share throughout the family you and Grandpa made. I am sad and happy at the same time because I miss you tremendously but know you are no longer suffering. It brings me comfort knowing that you and Grandpa are together and that someday we will all be together again. I miss you Grandma and wish that we had more time together. I will forever hold you in my heart. With all my love, your grandson - Joshua

Dearest Lupe,

Your daughter, grandchildren, and I are saddened by your sudden passing, but our hearts are at peace now that you have crossed over the rainbow. Al has been preparing for your arrival so that both of you can dwell in the house of the Lord hand-in-hand for the rest of eternity.

Irene, Julia, Jared, Josh, and myself will cherish the many outings we made together; and the memories we shared.

We love you and will miss you, always.


Each night we shed a silent tear,
As we speak to you in prayer.
To let you know we love you,
And just how much we care.
Take our million teardrops,
Wrap them up in love,
Then ask the wind to carry them,
To you in heaven above.

Such A beautiful soul at rest and now with god. My Grandma with such wit and having one of the sharpest minds. She had no trouble making others laugh with her fast comebacks and joke, most important the appreciation of life. My grandma was such a blessing to this world, life, and other she crossed paths with. Her journey has unfortunately come to an end but the strong beautiful daughters she has raised still carry the soft, caring, kind heart she had. We love and miss you. See you soon grandma you will be missed dearly.

Love always,
Jared, Cindy, & Baby Kayla Martinez

Thank you Lord for blessing us with such a wonderful woman we called Grandma. She could be tough and witty but extremely loving and compassionate. I can definitely say I have drawn my strength and perseverance from you and it has served me well throughout my life.
I am also eternally grateful to you and Grandpa for the gift of introducing us to the Lord! That’s a generational blessing I’ve been able to pass down. Blessings upon Blessings! It feels like just yesterday I was bouncing around in the back your station wagon or when we went to see Joel Osteen. Your eyes were watery and I knew it was because you missed grandpa so much. We can rest now knowing you are with Grandpa rejoicing with the Lord and watching over us all.

Love Always,

Julia Deane

My grandmother wasn’t the stereotypical “knit and bake cookies” grandma. Grandma Lupe was the fun kind of grandma. She was witty, you could never predict the next thing she would say, and she loved her Spurs . That’s how I want to remember her. The woman who made me laugh unconditionally until my stomach hurt, the woman who squeezed me as hard as she could until my grandpa would get mad because she was being too rough, and all the fun she brought into our lives. But I also know her as a woman of God and my aching heart knows she’s at peace. She is now reunited with my sweet grandfather. They are home. The hurt may get better over time in our family, but the memories and love will never fade.
Your Granddaughter Jeanette

My most sincere to the entire Luna family. May the Lords love embrace you and be your strength & comfort through these days of sorrow. You are in my thoughts and prayers.
She loved her children so much.
I will forever cherish the beautiful memories I have with Mrs. Luna. She truly had a beautiful soul and just brightened her surroundings, with a smile, witty comments, jokes and imparted wisdom through her advise, not to mention her great sense style. ( When she’d gift me something blingy, she’d say “Pa que andes por la hallway clank, clank”)
She was such a caring, thoughtful and giving person. It seemed she’d remember everybody’s birthday and was always blessing people with gifts. She brightened my days when I’d receive a random gift, a greeting card, etc from her.
We met as coworkers and it turned into a great friendship and I came to love her and Mr Luna just like family and later on her children when I met them.
I will miss our phone calls and texts...we’d share, encourage, laugh, cry, etc
I lost my best friend. I will forever hold her in my heart.
I find comfort in the many memories we shared and that she is now rejoicing in heaven
She will truly be missed
