I will always cherish knowing such a wonderful man. I always enjoyed being with him the many times he visited Mom when she was living, and the earlier years when he brought his family to our home. May God be with all the family and comfort you in your sorrow. Love Bonnie

I have a lot of fond memories of Luther. He loved going to South Shore and seeing my grandmother, Clara (Nellie's mom). He always had a smile on his face for everyone to see. He was a great person and I'm so proud to say that I knew him.
